Electric Furnace & Refractory Cleansing Fluxes-REDUX (U.S. Patent No. 7,618,473 B1)

REDUX EF40L Briquettes – Redux EF40L briquettes provide performance similar to fluorspar-based fluxes but without the drawbacks of "fluorine emissions". More importantly, there are no "aggressive refractory" interactions that occur with fluorspar containing fluxes. EF40L keeps furnaces and ladles free of slag build-up and extends refractory life. Incorporation of EF40L with the charge can greatly improve melting efficiency and metal quality and is successfully used in all types of electric melting furnaces such as arc, coreless induction, as well as channel induction furnaces.

REDUX EF40 Bricks – Redux EF40 bricks provide performance similar to fluorspar bases fluxes but without the drawbacks of "fluoride emissions". More importantly, there are no "aggressive refractory" interactions that occur with fluorspar containing fluxes. EF40 keeps furnaces and ladles free of slag build-up and extends refractory life. Incorporation of EF40 with the charge can greatly improve melting efficiency, metal quality, and metal cleanliness. In addition to improving metal quality, Redux EF40 flux additions improve melting efficiency and productivity.

REDUX EF40LP – Redux EF40LP is based on the same technology as ASI’s popular EF40L briquettes except that it is now available in a faster-acting form to effectively cleanse metal and prevent buildup in ladles. Redux EF40LP keeps holding furnaces and ladles free of slag build-up and extends refractory life. Incorporation of EF40LP with the charge or as a ladle addition can greatly improve melting efficiency and metal quality by reducing entrained slags. Redux EF40LP is a buffered flux that isn’t harmful to refractories and furnace linings when used in the prescribed manner.

Ladle Flux #2 – A gray and ductile iron ladle-cleaning flux containing minimal fluorides. Ladle Flux #2 contributes to the production of slag-free castings. It lowers the melting point and viscosity of the slag, which then rapidly rises to the surface where it can be skimmed off.

Ladle Flux 007 – A proprietary fluoride containing gray and ductile iron ladle flux that is enhanced by the addition of small amounts of magnesium and a slag coagulant. Adding ASI’s Slag-a-Way will greatly assist in slag removal.

Ladle Flux 008 – A proprietary fluoride containing ladle flux for ductile iron containing magnesium, rare earths and graphite. Using Ladle Flux 008 may allow for reductions in magnesium ferrosilicon treatment alloys as well as post-inoculants.
