The EN 43300 aluminum alloy (corresponding to ASTM B179-82 gravity casting standard) is a corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy, composed primarily of aluminum, copper, and magnesium. This alloy is mainly used in the instrument transformer industry, where ensuring maximum reliability and safety of the electrical system is essential.
Instrument transformers are devices that allow the transformation of electrical energy from one voltage to another, enabling the distribution of electrical energy over long distances. Thanks to its unique mechanical properties, the EN 43300 alloy is an ideal choice for the production of aluminum parts for instrument transformers.
EN 43300 alloy castings undergo aging heat treatment to give the alloy a unique combination of mechanical properties, such as high tensile, fatigue, and wear resistance.
Aluminum parts produced with EN 43300 alloy are ideal for use in instrument transformers due to their corrosion and mechanical stress resistance. For example, the EN AC 43300 alloy is used for the production of parts such as coils, cores, and brackets for instrument transformers.
The use of the EN 43300 aluminum alloy in instrument transformers ensures maximum reliability and safety of the electrical system. The corrosion resistance of the aluminum parts reduces maintenance and replacement costs for the transformer, improving the efficiency of the electrical system.
Furthermore, the use of EN 43300 alloy in the production of parts for instrument transformers offers economic advantages, thanks to the ease of processing the alloy, which reduces production time and costs.
The EN 43300 aluminum alloy is a great choice for the production of aluminum parts for instrument transformers due to its high strength, corrosion and mechanical stress resistance, ease of processing, and lightweight. Its ability to ensure maximum reliability and safety of the electrical system and reduce maintenance and replacement costs makes it an economical and sustainable choice for companies operating in the instrument transformer industry.
