010714mp-John-Deere-progress-12.jpgKolene Corporation provides foundries worldwide with specific Kastech® molten salt bath casting cleaning processes.  Capable of removing 100% of virtually any contaminant from ferrous and select non-ferrous castings (including aluminum), Kastech processes are fast, safe, and more efficient than mechanical methods.  Intricate or deep internal passages are cleaned as thoroughly as exposed surfaces.

Kastech processes allow foundries to tailor their cleaning operations to the type of ferrous and non-ferrous castings produced and the required production throughput.  In addition, Kastech processes do not attack substrate materials and they do not affect dimension integrity.

Kolene supplies custom-designed Kastech process equipment with options for automation, material handling, post-treatment, and by-product removal.

Kolene also offers casting cleaning services at our Detroit headquarters.  For more information, please visit Commercial Processing.
