SELEE also offers a range of additional products to serve the needs of our clients. Additional products include:
To ensure complete filter priming at startup, the filter element and the bowl in which it is seated must be properly heated prior to starting the flow of molten aluminum. SELEE Corporation produces several burner systems to meet any filter preheat requirements.
SELEE's new HVB Preheat Burners provide the most reliable and efficient method of bringing the filter and filter bowl up to the optimal temperature for aluminum casting.
The HVB Preheat Burners are compact and portable. They include models that meet US, European, and other International Standards. Also available are SELEE-made conventional inspirator burners with or without air supply valves.
SELEE's LIG Gas Lids are the ultimate in filter and bowl preheat technology. In addition to providing all the advantages of the HVB Preheat Burners, they are quick, quiet and easy to operate. They insure even heat distribution for complete priming and good gasket sealing every time. These highly automated systems are designed to work with your current programmable logic controller (plc) structure.
Advanced Ceramic Shapes
SELEE's Advanced Ceramic Shapes group include all equipment and accessory products for melt treatment and filtration in aluminum cast shops. Made with the finest quality materials and the latest updated technology, our Advanced Ceramic Shapes ensure bottom-line operational effectiveness.
FILTER BOWL & LAUNDER ASSEMBLIES
SELEE's precision-engineered filter bowls and launders are unique in the world. Their development and designs are based on our metallurgical engineers' years of experience in the field of aluminum melt filtration and molten metal transfer technology. They are easy to use, durable and are sized for industry-standard filter elements.
For the latest technology, consider the SELEE® Staged Filtration System.
The replaceable refractory liners for SELEE® filter bowls and launders are made of high-purity fused silica. They offer the most desirable properties for the demanding cast house environment: non-wetting, corrosion-resistant, insulating, thermal-shock resistant, and high strength.
Thermal Processing Products
SELEE Corporation offers a complete line of kiln furniture, kiln components and accessories, everything from dense to low mass products to meet every application need. Our complete line of kiln components will provide a solution for every rebuild project along with applications engineering assistance for special design requirements.
Our Engineered Ceramics® division produces kiln components that are a vital part of every high temperature furnace.
Their performance is often overlooked or taken for granted. However, proper material selection and design can result in 1) increased service life, 2) reduced maintenance cost, and 3) Lower energy consumption.
Proprietary material compositions allow us to balance the applications needs of strength, thermal shock resistance and thermal mass.
Burner/ Tap Out Blocks
SELEE Corporation's proprietary materials offer you increased product quality, longer service life, and reduced energy consumption. Products include:
Reliable, repeatable firing is absolutely critical to producing today's high quality components. This requirement drove the development of Process Temperature Control Rings (PTCR).
The use of PTCR gives our customers a highly accurate representation of firing conditions. Unlike other, more traditional methods, the PTCR system measures the actual amount of heat that is transferred to the fired products; thus allowing the mapping of the kiln's thermal performance.
Through application of PTCR technology, our customers have experienced yield improvements, reduced inspection cost and overall quality improvements. Technical Info→
SELEE Corporation manufactures open-cell, reticulated metal foam products for a wide range of applications. Common alloy materials include stainless steels, iron-chromium alloys, and copper alloys. Uses for metal foam include radiant burners, catalyst supports, flame arrestors, static fluid mixers, water treatment media, among many others.
METPORE® METAL FOAMS
SELEE Metpore® metal foams are available in a wide variety of geometries, porosities and materials. SELEE metal foams may be made with porosity as high as 98%, and can be optimized for your specific needs. The material has a high surface area, low thermal mass, good mechanical strength, and provides a tortuous path to fluid flow through the body of the material.
High surface area
Flow dispersion and mixing
Applications for Metpore®
Static Fluid Mixing
And many more.
A wide range of materials and configurations are available:
Pore Size: 5ppi – 120ppi
Relative Density: 2% – 25%
Materials: FECRALY, stainless steel, nickel, nickel alloys, copper, brass, steel, titanium casting.
Size: Maximum dimensions depend on product thickness, density and pore size. Please contact a product specialist for more information.

SELEE Corporation's Engineered Ceramics® division offers a wide variety of metal handling products, including crucibles, ladle liners, spouts, and pak-tite rams. For more information, please visit our sister company here at Engineered Ceramics®.
Designed for integrity and performance, Engineered Ceramics® crucibles can have dramatic effects on the cost effectiveness of your shop. Our crucibles are available in a wide selection of shapes and melting capacities. For extended crucible life and performance, let our engineering team assist you with technical advice on proper selection, correct installation and sound operational practices.
Engineered Ceramics' ladle liners, in a large variety of sizes and spout configurations, are strong and efficient, innovative in design and consistent in their high performance. Choose from open-top, or our unique monolithic bottom-pour ladle liners with integrated skimmers.
Our unlimited custom-shape capabilities distinguish us from the competition with spouts and integral crucibles tailored to the needs of your shop. If sizing changes, spout modifications or alterations are necessary to improve your process, you can count on Engineered Ceramics to provide you with prompt and effective solutions.
These high-thermal expansion, dry vibratable ramming materials pack easily and provide maximal density with minimal shifting. Pak-Tite Rams are designed for use with Engineered Ceramics' crucibles and ladles and are available in silica and spinel formulations.
SELEE Ceramic Foam for the Chemical Processing Industry is available as Catalyst Supports, Radiation Shields, and products for other chemical applications.
