Blasch offers a family of injection molded and cast alumina products. We offer compositions in a broad range of alumina percentages and microstructures to fulfill different requirements for thermal shock resistance, chemical corrosion resistance, melt and slag corrosion resistance, mechanical stability and gas permeability. A broad range of sizes and shapes are available.
We will work with you to engineer whatever customized solution your process requires. Typical Blasch alumina products include:
Die Casting is one of the most challenging processes for ceramics where materials see high thermal shock and long exposure to molten aluminum. Blasch helps you meet that challenge by providing the best selection of non-wetting materials available for aluminum die casting applications including our Oxytron™, Nitron™ and Aluminum Titanate materials. Utilizing these advanced materials, Blasch offers die casters designs and solutions that improve your casters uptime while reducing oxide formation.
The continuous casting process requires ceramic materials that must provide a long and predictable life in molten non-ferrous metals. Blasch materials like our Oxytron™, Nitron™, Fused Silica and Alumina materials exceed in these high thermal shock applications while also providing great non-wetting properties. Using our Blasch process for ceramic production, we produce products that provide the high tolerances and dimensional repeatability required in continuous casting operations to reduce downtime on your line. Nearly any shape and size of parts can be provided by Blasch.
Blasch contributes to the successful operation of larger induction furnaces (greater than 1,000 lbs) used in alloy production by providing products that can take the day in and day out abuse of the process. Products like the Blasch InterLok Tongue & Groove Segmented Crucible systems, ProCaster one piece crucibles, tundishes and Launders all are custom designed to meet the needs of your vacuum induction furnace configurations. Available in a variety of premium refractory materials, these systems are individually engineered and offer each user the utmost in control of melt chemistry, the lowest levels of ceramic inclusions in finished product coupled with easy installation and predictable campaign life. With sizes from 1,000 pounds to 15,000 pounds, Blasch has a ceramic system that will improve the bottom line of your alloy furnace operation.
