VS Clay Graphite stirrers can be used for mix­ing additions into all types of molten metal, ensuring good distribution of the additions in the melt. They can also be used to remove any dirt or oxides from the surface of the molten metal.

VK Flat Clay Graphite skimmers are designed for the easy and efficient removal of dross and dirt from all types of molten metal.  

Pattern range

Plunger mixers are available in lengths from 318mm to 915mm. and are denoted by the prefic VM

Plunger mixers are produced in a range of diameters and lengths and can be supplied with or without a 16mm diameter steel reinforcing rod.

They are used to plunge treatment tablets into Brass or Aluminium and for stirring in the reaction products in the production of Ductile Iron.
