The SNIF® SHEER NEO P-30 Single Nozzle System provides a nominal continuous refining rate of 30,000 lb (14,000 kg) per hour. The system consists of a heated refining furnace, one SNIF SHEER NEO spinning nozzle, and PLC automated process and furnace heating controls.
The P-30 refining chamber is designed to optimize process gas bubble saturation throughout the melt to maximize spinning nozzle refining efficiency. An internal baffling system controls the flow of metal, ensuring efficient refining of the molten aluminium as it flows through the refining furnace. The baffle allows the metal to flow freely in and out of the furnace, but prevents air infiltration, a cause of excessive dross generation.
The P-30 furnace can be ordered with the following options.
