Our Commitment to Conscious Manufacturing
Chlorine is a highly toxic & corrosive gas yet, many secondary aluminum producers use chlorine gas or chlorine containing fluxes. Chlorine in toxic concentrations is known to have a kill radius of 2 miles and that is a risk CASS will never take!
To reduce costs, an increasing number of secondary aluminum producers choose nitrogen in their degassing process. However, in order to guarantee the yield a superior product made in the safest, most environmentally friendly way, CASS uses argon - a colorless, odorless, tasteless and non-toxic noble gas that can provide an inert & clean environment free of problematic elements.
We don’t use fluxes in the removal of magnesium and the purification of molten aluminum from oxides and hydrogen. Instead we blend down the magnesium using higher purity material. This practice requires us to be more diligent but results in a secondary marketable product that is chloride-free.
