Hycal 100
For Hydrogen Content Control

The HYCAL 100 has been specially developed to meet the requirements of the production environment - both for the aluminium-producing industry and for foundries. 

The HYCAL 100 is a wall-mounted measuring device for the real-time measurement of dissolved hydrogen in liquid aluminium alloys. The technology is based on a novel ceramic material (CaZrO3-In), which is able to conduct hydrogen ions at elevated temperatures and measure them in the hydrogen concentration cell. 

The impeller's HMI panel is used for the operation and parameterisation of the measuring process. As a customer, you are able to individually set up and define your measurement process. The user sets the target value and treatment continues until the target value is reached. The measuring process starts upon reaching the stabilisation phase and is presented as a measurement curve on the display. 

This allows the user to see the current state of the melt in situ. With the HYCAL 100 the user is not only able to measure the hydrogen content, but also specifically control it.

  • Quick and easy determination of the melt quality by the caster in approx. 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Real-time measurement in the crucible/transport ladle.
  • The sensors used are characterised by good service lives and are able to perform roughly 100 measurements.
  • Measuring range >0.05 ml/100 gr and measurement precision 0.02 - 0.03 ml/100 gr.
  • The technology is calibrated by IDECO as standard with a certificate and seal.

  • HYCAL 100 with integrated software for 99 stored alloys and adjustable measuring parameters on the connected MC Impeller HMI 
  • Data memory card for documenting the measurements
  • CE conformity
  • Tested according to DGUV provisions
