Elkem, in conjunction with Pico, has developed a simple, robust and affordable thermal analysis system for cast irons. Determination of the quality of iron before casting is a primary consideration in preventing sub-standard castings or even scrap. As such, a process control system should be easy enough to be quickly understood by shop floor operators. EPIC™ has been designed to give a rapid determination of the important factors to be considered in deciding whether an iron is suited for pouring.

- Simple to use
- Accurate assessment of the state of the iron before making expensive castings or as a control tool during casting
