The SNIF® HD-2000 provides automated metal processing in furnaces and a safe, efficient alternative to the manual use of flux wands.
Featuring an integrated degassing impeller, the SNIF HD-2000 offers the flexibility to simultaneously circulate and degas the melt. For hydrogen removal and metal cleaning, the mixing system of the SNIF HD-2000 injects treatment gas below the metal surface to maximize efficiency and help reduce emissions.
The SNIF HD-2000 can be either floor mounted beside the furnace or mounted on the side wall of the furnace. In the standby position, the mixing shaft and impeller are completely removed from the furnace. For operation, the mixing shaft and impeller pivot into position. The impeller is completely submerged in the molten aluminium, maximizing the mixing action, while providing efficient degassing for metal cleaning.
Note: The HD-2000 can be connected to the FIM5 to inject refining agents and fluxes.
