Formatted Abstract/Summary
Management of inclusions is an important part of quality control within the aluminium cast house. Inclusions including oxide films and particles, spinel, refractory particles and silica particles have a detrimental effect on many aluminium cast products. The ability to reliably detect inclusions in a timely fashion is an essential part of this process. There are a number of tools available for inclusion measurement based on different chemical, physical and electrical principles. This document reviews existing techniques for inclusion detection such as K-Mold, Podfa, Lais, Prefil, LiMCA and ultrasound, and also examines new techniques which may have potential to offer improved inclusion detection.
