Introduction for Humidity Control for the Investment Casting Process
Investment casting consists of many hygroscopic products which can be damaged because of excessive moisture. The end finish of product is compromised due to reaction between metals and high moisture content in the surrounding air.
Effects of Humidity
- Porcelain loses its shape
- Corrosion of metals
- Improper drying of ceramic shells
- Increased maintenance cost
- Mold and mildew growth
- Increase in number of rejects
Dehumidifiers are utilized so as to maintain optimal relative humidity levels between 40%-60%, to ensure smooth casting process.
Humidity control can reduce the drying time and increase accuracy which will help churn out best quality products.
