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 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.
HVB Preheat Burners are compact and portable. They include models that meet US, European, and other International Standards. Conventional inspirator burners with or without air supply valves are also available.
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 includes 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 BOWLS AND LAUNDER ASSEMBLIES
SELEE's precision-engineered filter bowls and launders are unique. 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 filters.
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
- Skid Rails
- Element Sleeves
- Perimeter 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.
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.
