Invented by Shor in the late 1960's, steam dewaxing has proven to be a very useful tool to:
- Significantly reduce burnout time
- Almost completely eliminate all the smoke and smell associated with burnout
- Produce smoother castings
Prior to placing flasks in a burnout oven, place the flasks in a steam dewaxer. In 45-60 minutes, 95% of the wax is removed from the flasks. The wax is collected in the water and is easily removed when the water cools. Returns subject to a 15% restocking charge.
