- Plasma Arc Melting Cold Hearth furnace uses an electrically
excited gas, typically Helium or Argon, to melt reactive and
refractory metals in a sealed chamber, under inert atmosphere.
The Cold Hearth is a water-cooled, copper vessel is devoid of
contaminating elements like Oxygen and yields clean, as-cast
metal by removing high and low density inclusions during the
cold hearth refining process.
- The plasma arc torch column provides the heat source with
maximum temperatures well above 15,000 K. Under these
process conditions evaporation of alloying elements can be
suppressed and complex alloy compositions can be produced.
- Using the processed clean Ti & Ti alloy scraps and more.
- Low Cost & Low inclusions : Very Clean Ti alloy Ingot.
- All Ti alloy Ingots can be produced.
- It is possible to produce ingots, especially high melting point
metals. (Nb, W, Co, Mo etc)
