Casting – Vacuum induction melting and casting

OCAS has extensive experience in melting different base alloys ranging from very pure iron to stainless steel and non-ferro alloys.  The table above shows the wide range of alloying elements for addition. The two vacuum casting units are equipped with a sampling system for hot metal analysis and a Celox® probe for deoxidation control. The vacuum technology allows for high purity grades, precise alloying, deoxidation and Al control.


  • Capacity: 14 dm3 melt (corresponding to approx. 100 kg pure Fe)
  • Celox® probe for deoxidation control
  • Sampling system for hot metal analysis
  • Max fusion temperature 1700 °C
