Inline Filters

for Metal
Filtration & Casting

Applied Ceramics brings advanced technology to the forefront of metal filtration with specialized inline filters. Our proprietary ceramic honeycomb filters are specifically engineered to provide optimal flow rate control, vital in preventing voids and achieving consistent casting quality.

What are
Inline Filters?

Inline filters play a critical role in the metal casting process. They are strategically placed in the casting system to remove impurities from molten metal, ensuring a clean and consistent flow into molds. This filtration is crucial for maintaining the quality of the final product, especially in precision applications like aerospace, medical and automotive parts.

Advantages of Our Ceramic Honeycomb Design for Inline Filters

Utilizing a high-grade ceramic body with a honeycomb design, these filters achieve unparalleled purity,
ensuring a cleaner and more stable flow essential for intricate and elaborate casting processes.


Filtration Efficiency

The unique structure of our ceramic filters provides a large surface area for filtration, effectively trapping impurities while maintaining a steady flow of molten metal. This design is particularly efficient in creating laminar flow, reducing turbulence, and the risk of introducing air bubbles (voids) or other defects into the final casting.


Durability and
Heat Resistance

Ceramic filters, known for their high mechanical strength and excellent thermal shock resistance, are well-suited for the extreme temperatures and conditions of metal casting processes. Their durability also means less scrap and rework.


to Your Needs

One size does not fit all in metal casting. Our filters' versatility allows for customization of size, shape, and filtration capacity to meet the specific requirements of different casting processes and metals. Our material science and engineering expertise enables us to develop innovative filter designs that address unique challenges in metal casting, including intricate aerospace components, large automotive parts, and medical replacement implants.

Why Inline Filters
From Applied Ceramics

Reduced Operational Costs

By minimizing casting defects and improving process efficiency, these filters significantly cut down on waste and rework, translating to considerable savings in operational expenses. The initial investment in our filters is offset by their extended lifespan and the cost savings from improved casting quality and reduced waste.


Rapid Manufacturing Capability

One of the standout features of our filters is the speed at which they can be produced. This rapid manufacturing process ensures that we can meet high demand without sacrificing quality.


Quick Integration into Existing Systems

Our filters are designed for easy integration into existing casting setups, minimizing downtime and accelerating the transition to improved filtration.

Outperforms Foam & 3D Prints

While foam and 3D-printed filters might initially appear less expensive, our ceramic honeycomb filters offer better long-term value. They outperform in durability, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness, making them a smarter financial choice for businesses.


The Importance of Precision in Flow Rate Control

Precision in flow rate control is paramount in metal casting, especially when dealing with complex shapes and high-value materials. The correct flow rate ensures the molten metal fills the mold accurately, avoiding defects like voids or inclusions.

Challenges in Flow Rate Control

  • Balancing Act: Maintaining an optimal flow rate is a delicate balance. Too fast, and you risk creating voids; too slow, and the metal might cool unevenly.
  • Complex Castings: For intricate designs, the flow rate is crucial to capture fine details without compromising the integrity of the casting.

The Role of Ceramic HoneyComb Inline Filters

  • Uniform Laminar Flow: These filters are designed to create a consistent laminar flow, crucial for high-precision casting.
  • Avoiding Voids: By controlling the flow rate accurately, our filters help prevent the formation of voids, a common issue with suboptimal flow control.

Advantages of our Inline Metal Filters

  • Improved Casting Quality: A well-controlled flow rate produces higher-quality castings with fewer defects.
  • Efficiency in Production: Consistent flow rates lead to more predictable and efficient casting processes.
  • Reduced Waste: Minimizing defects means less scrap material, contributing to cost savings and environmental sustainability.

At Applied Ceramics, we've engineered our inline filters to match each casting process's specific flow rate needs, ensuring that our clients always get the best possible outcome.

Meeting The Performance Needs of High-Stakes Industries
