Article

The quality requirements of the metals produced and the articles manufactured from them increases as non-ferrous metallurgy advances. In the course of aluminum production it is necessary to remove impurities present in the melt. The types of impurities present in aluminum melt and methods for removing them by filtering the melt are briefly reviewed. The existing ceramic filters and methods of manufacturing them are examined.

Key words

oxide ceramic ceramic filters aluminum melt filtering of aluminum melt
