Systems of shrouding the metal stream with an inert gas have been developed but are not very effective.

Parficular difficulfies arise wifh fhe use of aufomafic pouring furnaces where convenfional ladle inoculafion is nof possible. The channel furnace will only work providing this loop is maintained 24 hours per day.

Gas-fired or oil-fired rotary furnaces can also be used, but their use is less common. The first malleable iron, ‘whiteheart iron’ Types of cast iron 25 Figure 2.

Close capture fume hoods or high velocity lip extraction units are specified for fume capture and dry bag filter systems are sufficient to handle the levels of fume that arise. Heaf freafmenf of fhe casfings will eliminafe carbides in fhin secfions, produce more consisfenf mafrix sfrucfures and for a given sfrucfure, fhe mechanical properties are offen improved by heaf freafmenf, especially by normalising.

MgFeSi alloy is placed in a chamber moulded into the running system, the iron is continuously treated as it flows over the alloy Fig. The left-hand scale is therefore used to assess surface chilling tendency and the righthand scale for assessing the general structure for a plate casting of a given thickness.

Properties of compacted graphite irons Table 6. Nowadays, most patterns and coreboxes are made using computer-controlled machine tools and it is more convenient to express the contraction as a percentage allowance.

Melting and casting quality Aspecfs of casfing qualify affecfed by melfing and sfeelmaking pracfice include Deoxidafion effecfs Sulphides Inclusions Gas porosify Hof fearing Deoxidation Liquid sfeel dissolves oxygen; as fhe sfeel cools, fhe dissolved oxygen combines wifh carbon in fhe sfeel forming carbon monoxide: A more reliable mefhod is fo use sachefs or precasf slugs of inoculanf in fhe pouring bush or in fhe running sysfem Fig.

In welding, it is difficult to avoid stress concentrations at junctions while castings have well- radiused joints so that fatigue resistance of cast steel junctions is superior to that of welded junctions.

The and sieves are also optional, but may be included to give better separation between the and sieves. Types of cast iron. The quality of the silica is important, it is mined as quartzite and should have the following approximate composition: The diameter of handboook filling hole is chosen to minimise the generation of fume while allowing the ladle to be filled quickly without excessive temperature loss. Some core binders expand with the heat of fhe cast metal causing the casting to be larger than otherwise expected.

The liquidus arrest measures the carbon equivalent liquidus value CEL given by: My handbok Help Advanced Book Search. A more reliable method is to use sachets or precast slugs of inoculant in the pouring bush or in the running system Fig. Ni-hard irons confaining Ni fo increase hardenabilify by ensuring fhaf ausfenife fransforms fo martensite affer heaf freafmenf.

This is done by varying the voseco rate. The choice of alloy composition depends on casfing fhickness and infended use.

Iron foundries almost always use lip-pouring ladles although bottompouring may be used for very large castings such as ingot moulds. If is nof widely used in sfeel foundries oufside fhe USA. High Cr-Mo whife irons combining abrasion resisfance wifh foughness. This is done by varying fhe blasf rafe. The presence of phosphorus up fo 1.


Without sufficient Mn, iron sulphide forms during solidification and deposits around grain boundaries where it renders the metal hot-short and likely to produce cracked castings. Ladle capacity kg Thickness mm — over 25—50 50—75 75— Linings can be damaged handbok incorrect drying. For each group of alloys, specifications and fosdco applications are described, together with details hsndbook melting practice, metal treatment and casting practice.

The eutectic cell size is large because of the low degree of nucleation.

Some buyers may have their own specifications which do not coincide exactly with international or national specifications. The temperature of the metal in the Melting cast irons 55 loop is higher than that of handbooi metal in the main vessel, which limits the operating temperature of a channel furnace, since a high loop femperafure shorfens fhe life of fhe refracfory of fhe loop.
