Buena Park, California, USA – October, 2014 – Almex USA Inc. has announced the premier of its first aluminum casthouse process video for its state-of-the-art LARS® aluminum degassing and purification system (LARS stands for Liquid Aluminum Refining System).

In an effort to simplify some of the mystery around casthouse equipment, this video is the first tool in Almex’s new series of easy to follow and educational tools for the industry. The minute-long animated video takes the viewer on an entertaining journey through the refining process to show the system’s sophisticated technology in an easy to understand manner. Among the notable features covered in the video, the customizable configuration of the input and output ports of LARS is one of the most distinguishing features of the unit – not to mention one of its biggest selling points.

The viewer gets a first-hand look at how molten aluminum enters the LARS vessel laden with inclusions, gets degassed and purified as it passes through the chambers, and exits the unit as clean, high-quality metal ready to be cast into billets or slabs. Just how effective is LARS at cleaning aluminum? Almex’s website indicates that LARS guarantees 75% aluminum degassing efficiency and 99% inclusion removal efficiency via its patented in-situ gas preheating process that is unavailable elsewhere on the market.

LARS® has successfully processed over 1 billion lbs. of hard alloy over the past 10 years. For more information on how to get “cleaner metal for better products” with LARS, click here.
