Hycast - Rod feeder system

Grain Refining

The Hycast Rod Feeder is a robust and reliable system for even and stable melt grain refining during casting. This technology has been developed based on operator friendly design and ease of access during operation and maintenance.

Main purpose using a grain refiner:

  • Reduced tendendy of hot-cracks during casting
  • Improved mechanical properties of the end-product
  • More homogeneous microstructure
  • Reduction of surface defects during rolling
  • Improved anodizing properties of the end product
