Abstract:Filtration and flow process of molten metals was analyzed by water simulation experiments. Fluid dynamic phenomena of molten metal cells through a foam ceramic filter was described and calculated by ERGOR equation as well.The results show that the filter is most useful for stable molten metals and the filtered flow is laminar,so that inclusions can be removed more effectively.
Key words: molten metals;filtration;flow process;dynamics
