Abstract [en]

Electromagnetic fields can influence the behavior of liquid metals in commercial Ceramic Foam Filters (CFF's). In the present study 9 inch industrial CFF's of high grade with 50 and 80 pores per inch (ppi) have been investigated. The main objective was to prime the 9 inch industrial scale CFF's with a standard aluminum casting alloy (3XXX - alloy) by the use of various magnetic field strengths (max. 0.12 T) induced by a coil. The obtained results were compared with reference gravity experiments. The influence of the electromagnetic Lorentz forces on the obtained results was calculated with 2D Finite Element Modeling (FEM) using the COMSOLĀ® software. The fluid flow characteristics inside the CFF were considered and are part of another publication within the group.
