Ceramic Filters

Ceramic filters, when correctly designed into a gating system, help to remove inclusions from the metal stream and reduce turbulance, preventing erosion and reoxidation thus reducing defective castings. Below is the recommended flow rate and metal weight capacity for filters we supply. Please reference the application/material when ordering. Check with your local Exochem distributor for more information.
