ECOFLUX PRODUCTS

All of the products within the ECOFLUX range are environmentally improved for treating aluminium alloys. They are either fluoride free or with low fluoride content.

The ECOFLUX products are designed to give a balanced reaction within the dross, resulting in the minimum exothermic reaction necessary to initiate the separation of the metal from the dross.

ECOFLUX 14-series

These products give a dry cover on the melt, to combine optimum separation of the melt from the dross and ease of drossing off.

ECOFLUX 142

Low Fluoride, sodium free drossing flux for temperatures above 720ºC.

ECOFLUX 143

Low fluoride drossing flux, producing very dry, powdery dross. This product is recommended for use with rotary degassing systems.

ECOFLUX 146

Low fluoride, drossing flux. Suitable for use in crucible and reverberatory furnaces where the aluminium alloy is held at a wide range of temperatures from 720ºC to 780ºC. 

ECOFLUX 15-series

The products of this series give a liquid cover on the melt for optimum protection of the melt from oxidation and hydrogen pickup.

ECOFLUX 150

Fluoride free, low melting point covering flux suitable for melting swarf, turnings and dirty scrap in reverberatory and induction furnaces.

ECOFLUX 151

Fluoride free, low melting point covering flux suitable for melting swarf, turnings and dirty scrap in reverberatory and induction furnaces. Similar to ECOFLUX 150, but slightly more reactive.

ECOFLUX 152

Fluoride free, refining flux for contaminated charges and removal of oxide built-up from the walls of furnaces. It is a low mwlting point refining and cleansing flux which thickens as oxides and other impurities are absorbed. ECOFLUX 152 is suitable for melting swarf, turnings and dirty scrap. It may also be used as a wash down flux to remove oxide built-up on furnace linings and crucibles, providing dry, easily removable dross.

ECOFLUX 154

Low fluoride variant of ECOFLUX 152, giving an improved drossing action at low temperatures.

ECOFLUX 16-series

The products of the ECOFLUX 16-series are speciallly developed for use with Flux Injection and ''Rotorject'' Rotary Flux Injection Systems to combine the well- proven benefits of flux injection with the environmental advantages of the ECOFLUX range of products.

The HA Flux Injection and Rotorject Systems are simple to operate and generate less fume and toxic gases than traditional methods. In addition to very efficient cleaning of the melt, another benefit of the process is a powerful degassing effect which eliminates the necessity for a separate degassing operation.

ECOFLUX 161

General purpose, low fluoride injection grade for cleaning and degassing. For use at 720ºC and above.

ECOFLUX 163

Low fluoride, sodium and calcium free injection grade. Recommended for use on piston alloys, Al/Mg alloys and other alloys intolerant of sodium or calcium.

ECOFLUX 164

General purpose, low fluoride injection grade with recommended working range of 720ºC to 780ºC. It is a cleaning, degassing and drossing flux suitable for use with all aluminium alloys other than those which are intolerant of sodium.

ECOFLUX 165

General Purpose injection grade, with excellent flow characteristics, especially suited to use in rotary flux injection systems at elevated temperatures. It is a cleaning, degassing and drossing flux suitable for use with all aluminium alloys other than those that are intolerant of sodium. ECOFLUX 165 has been specifically developed for use at high temperatures where continuous metal treatments result in higher than normal temperatures in the graphite shaft and impeller.
