Graphite & Carbon uses in the Aluminium Industry

Graphite is used throughout the complex processes in the creation and purification of Aluminium, Graphite's heat and chemical resistant properties make it an ideal material for this application. Graphite molds and casting rings are also used throughout the aluminium industry to fabricate complex aluminium products.

  • Graphite fluxing are tubes used as part of the aluminium purification process.

  • Graphite plates and rolls for aluminium extrusion presses. Extruded aluminium is used in the likes of manufacturing modern window frames and shutters.

  • Casting rings for hot top casting or for gas slip system

  • Graphite shafts and graphite impellers are used in rotary purification systems for aluminium degassing. Graphite is used due to it's heat and chemical resistant properties.
