UDICELL Filters

UDICELL Filter

Highly robust foundry filtration products recommended for high temperature alloys and/or heavy castings.


Types:
• Zirconia
• Carbon Bonded
• Exactfill Housings

UDICELL Zirconia Filters


UDICELL filters are fully sintered ceramic filters made of partially stabilized zirconia.  These filters are specifically designed for use in steel and iron foundries.  UDICELL filters have the highest chemical, thermal and mechanical stability in the industry, providing consistency and performance for high temperature alloys and/or large pouring weights.  The UDICELL filter is a cost efficient means of reducing casting defects. 


Recommended pour sizes are 10 PPI – 15 PPI.
Recommended metal type: Stainless Steel / Low Alloy Steel

Advantages of UDICELL Zirconia Filters:
• Ability to withstand temperatures up to 3200F
• High efficiency of molten metal filtration and turbulence reduction, providing laminar flow
• Captures non-metalic inclusions to improve casting properties (strength, ductility and fatigue resistance)
• Open pore structure provides repeatable pour times and flow rates
• Process control for the highest quality filters in the industry

UDICELL Carbon Bonded Filters


UDICELL carbon bonded filters are used for ferrous alloys that may experience priming difficulties.  The carbon bonded filters provide an excellent mix of priming efficiency with filtration effectiveness.  A low percentage of carbon limits the possibility of contamination from carbon pick-up.  UDICELL carbon bonded filters can be engineered in custom shapes, with a maximum dimension of 6” or 150 mm. 

 
Recommended pour sizes are 10 PPI – 15 PPI
Recommended metal type: Stainless Steel / Low Alloy Steel

Advantages of UDICELL Carbon Bonded Filters:
• Ideal for low pouring temperatures
• Efficient filtration and oxide reduction
• Multiple pour sizes

 

UDICELL Exactfill with tubular filter and housing


The single filter housing system is easy to assemble within the molding cavity.  Assembly of multiple housings, at one or more levels, allows the molding and pouring of very large castings.  Each piece has an outlet so you can close off either the top or bottom with the stopper.  This feature eliminates the need for left or right hand versions of the housing.  Also, the metal will penetrate the filter and exit at the top or bottom of the carousel and then into a connected refractory gating system, or directly into the mold cavity. 


Recommended pour size is 10 PPI
Recommended metal type: Steel / LCLA / SS

Advantages of UDICELL Exactfill with tubular filter and housing:
• 3x greater filter area
• Self-supporting geometry
• Quick install & easy to use
