Aluminum Rotary Degassing System

Thermtronix degassing system

Thermtronix® produces only the highest quality products with state-of-the-art technology. Our two aluminum rotary degassing systems are no exception: Autoclean II and Autoclean Electric Shuttle.

Both products utilize a foundry-proven method of spin degassing using either dry nitrogen or argon gas. The process begins when the gas passes through a heavy wall machined graphite shaft. (Shafts are factory protected with a non-wetting coating to assure longevity.) A unique edge-cut rotor then shears the gas and evenly disperses it in the bottom of the molten aluminum bath. Miniature bubbles form, creating an increased surface area through which dissolved hydrogen is absorbed as it slowly rises to the surface.
