In foundries, especially for aluminium casting plants, the quality of molten metals is very important to assure the quality of the final cast product since impurities may negatively affect the quality of the cast. Defects created during the melting stage could create problems to the final microstructure of the cast so is a mandatory step for the quality control department to check the quality of the melt.

By measuring the density index (DI) of the metal, it is possible to define, control and optimize the process of cleaning the cast, improving the quality. In this way also rejection rate is drastically reduced.
The density index represents the percentage difference in density between the two samples; the lower the density index the cleaner the aluminium melt and the fewer pores formed.

With BEL Engineering advanced balance M5-iDens, calculating the density index is easy and fast. With a 5 inch touch screen interface, latest generation of microprocessors and intuitive user interface the user can have immediately accurate, clear and fast results.

Without the necessary to connect the balance to computer for using a software, all the data and results can be seen directly from the large touch screen of the balance, with the possibility to print also all the data with an optional printer.

Ioniser: integrated ioniser on the back of the balance Electromagnetic Force RestorationElectromagnetic Force Restoration: coil in a permanent magnet for the the most accurate weighings RS232Rs232 Data Interface: to connect the balance to printer, PC, peripheral devices. Measuring UnitsMeasuring Units: Select the measuring unit that balance will use to display weight. PiececountingPiececounting: function to count identical items, reference quantities are selectable. LimitsCheckweighing: upper and lower limits can be set individually, for dosing and portioning.
