|ABOUT THE PRESENTERS:|
|Dr. C. Edward Eckert is President of Apogee Technology, Inc. and Quantum Environmental Dynamics, Inc. Dr. Eckert is also an adjunct professor of mechanical engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. His research interests include fluid flow through porous media, phase separation in molten metals, phase equilibria as related to metal treatment reactions, acoustics, plasma based materials processing, oxygen dissolution and uptake kinetics in bio-reactors, and industrial waste water treatment. Dr. Eckert holds 116 US and international patents, 36 technical publications, and is a member of Sigma Xi, Alpha Sigma Mu, TMS-AIME, AFS, and ASM International.
Professor Raj Mutharasan is the professor of chemical engineering on the faculty of Drexel University. Professor Murtharasan's research interests are in process metallurgy and biochemical processing. He has over 90 technical reviewed publications, several chapters in research monographs and several patents.
Dr. John Jorstad is Director of Aluminum Development for CMI in Virginia.
Next, these fundamental principles are applied to the formation and removal mechanisms of impurities in molten aluminum. Finally, the selection, description, and operation of commercial fluxing and filtration processes will be discussed including the topics of molten metal quality monitoring and specific issues relating to metal treatment in foundry operations. A course manual is provided that will serve as a desk reference in the field.
