Advanced Filtration to Improve Single Crystal Casting Yield
Performer: Mikro Systems Inc.
Project No: SC0008266
Model tree schematic.
Industry standard flat primary filter.
Conical pour cup (primary) filters produced by TOMO during Phase I.
3 filter variants
Can be nested to contain multiple geometries to create tortuous path for effective filtration
Conical shape increases available surface area by 7X over current disc filter
Can contain sidewall features
Point blockage causes less disturbance to output flow pattern
Industry standard in-line filters – fine structures break and cause incusions in castings
In-line (secondary) filters produced by TOMO during Phase I.
Support features are designed into castings
Filter design stronger and less susceptible to thermal shock
Geometric pattern makes flow uniform across filter
