Historical Review of Developments in Aluminium Cast-House Technology

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Aluminium Cast House Technology XI" report to their offering.

Series: Materials Science Forum Vol. 630

Selected, peer reviewed papers from the international conference, organised by the CAST CRC, on behalf of the aluminium industry. It was held from 13-16 September, 2009 on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

The Aluminium Cast-house Technology Conference in Australia is truly an international event where leaders in the aluminium industries of the five developed continents meet every two years. The participants have the opportunity to listen to acknowledged experts in the field and to learn of the latest developments in aluminium processing technology. It is important, especially during the current worldwide financial crisis, to learn what means are available for reducing costs and to learn how others have adjusted to the present situation.

These proceedings contain the technical papers presented at the conference and serve as an important reference work for anyone involved with aluminium. The 31 peer-reviewed papers are grouped into: industry directions, safety & environment, dross generation & handling, furnaces & refractories, melt quality & treatment, cast-house productivity, direct chill & continuous casting, and ingot casting.
