How It Works

Siphon equipment is used to siphon molten aluminium in potrooms and casthouses. Dross and aluminium deposits accumulated on the inside walls need to be removed on a regular basis to maintain the siphon free of obstructions and to ensure efficient siphoning.

The STC / Siphon Tube Cleaner is a powerful machine used to drill the tapping tubes to remove the bath and aluminium stuck inside. A cleaning head is fixed to a steel rod and driven by an electric gearmotor mounted to a carriage that moves the cleaning head horizontally, inside the tapping tube. The machine can completely clean tubes clogged with a combination of metal and bath (not with metal only).

The STC is composed of a ventilated soundproof case, tube holding devices and a cleaning module with rotation and translation functions.
