Overview

The LiMCA system provides granulometric and total density information on the inclusion content of aluminum melts, in real time, based on an objective and user-independent method. It is ideally suited for applications in process development, process control, and quality assurance.

 The size distribution and total concentration are displayed in real time on the computer screen.

The impact of furnace preparation, alloying practice, feedstock mix, settling time, and similar parameters on melt cleanliness, are easily determined. The effects of routine casting practices (metal level control, turbulence in the metal distributor) are directly observed as they take place.

 

Data

The LiMCA III uses the proven LiMCA measurement principle that is the industry benchmark for measuring non-metallic solid inclusions in molten aluminium.

It can be used under harsh industrial production conditions to provide an accurate indicator for the metal cleanliness of aluminium alloys.

The LiMCA III has a lighter measuring head with more versatile and flexible positioning in molten metal than previous LiMCA analyzers.

Its lower center of gravity makes it more stable and easy to maneuver.
