Auxiliaries

An efficient cooling water system with a closed primary circuit is an essential part of a well-operating casting line. Tailor-made primary cooling water units for all UPCAST® lines are available from UPCAST OY.

The alloy feeder is used in double-furnace lines for casting low alloyed copper (e.g. silver bearing and phosphor-deoxidized copper) products. This system doses granulated alloying elements into the launder during melt transfers. The operation is synchronized together with the automatic melt transfer function and has a feedback link guaranteeing accurate chemical analysis.
