Title Controlled hexachloroethane decay during degassing of aluminium melts
Original title Gesteuerte Hexachlorethanzersetzung bei der Entgasung von Aluminiumschmelzen [in German]
Bibliographic information Mar. 1988, Vol.75, No.6, p.152-154. Illus. 5 ref.
Abstract During degassing of aluminium melts with hexachloroethane in foundries hexachlorebenzene is formed. The influence of reducing and oxidising conditions on hexachlorobenzene formation during degassing with hexachloroethane was studied in laboratory experiments. Under oxidising conditions 95% less hexachlorobenzene was formed than under reducing conditions and degassing was more effective.
