Charge bridging can also be a problem when melting charges of cast iron borings. The lower temperatures give high hardness, strength and wear resistance, while the higher heat treatment temperatures result in higher ductility and toughness. This means that at 50 Hz, the smallest ferrous charge piece that can be efficiently heated is around mm diameter. The production of grey irons In order to produce castings having the required properties, the following factors must be controlled: The Standard defines 16 tolerance grades, designated CT1 to CT16, listing the total casting tolerance for each grade on raw casting dimensions from 10 to 10 mm.

Hhandbook only skimmed it, but this looks like a really good reference. This practice reduces gas consumption to about 55 rv?

The channel furnace The channel furnace consists of an upper vessel, holding the bulk of the charge material, with an inductor bolted on the underside Fig. The long campaign hot blast cupola is considered by many to be the most economical method of melting grey iron for foundries. Bandbook is essentially the same as the tundishcover method but carried out in an open ladle. Induction furnaces are the most popular, there are two basic types, the channel furnace and the coreless induction furnace.


Only the strongest moulds, such as sodium silicate bonded moulds or well-vibrated lost foam moulds, will resist such pressures so the use of feeders handdbook common when ductile iron castings are made. Tifanium-confaining alloys can cause problems due fo build- up of Ti in foundry refurns leading fo impaired fodeco.

The cupola gases pass through a curtain of water which removes the grit particles, absorbs up to half fodeco the SO2 but does not remove dust.

The American Foundryman’s Society Inc. Carbon and Carbon-Manganese Sfeels Secfion 3: The principle is shown in Fig.

It is important to control the residual aluminium left in the melt after deoxidation. The installed lining cost is around 2. Automatic pouring systems are used increasingly, but manual pouring is still the commonest method of filling moulds.

Types of cast iron. The rale of cooling in fhe final section of fhe heal Time h Figure 7. The data in Table 3. The melt is first deoxidised then desulphurised. Even if iron of the correct chemical analysis is made in the melting furnace, castings having the desired graphite structure will not be produced without the addition of inoculants.


If sulphur is below 0. This remains in place when the hot fosrco is knocked out.

Mains frequency furnaces are nof effecfive in sizes smaller fhan fhis. During Mg treatment, oxides and sulphides are formed in the iron, resulting in dross formation on the metal surface, this dross must be removed as completely as possible before casting. The stirring effect of induction power rapidly incorporates additions. Hof blasf cupolas are operafed on long campaigns, many wifh unlined, wafer-cooled sfeel shells. Flseco feed rates of 9 mm wire are 30—50 metres per minute.

The ADI heaf freafmenf is a fwo-sfage process, shown in Fig. Since slag removal is an unpleasant task for the furnace operator, it is advisable to avoid the use of dirty or rusty charge materials.

The grey iron eutectic occurs at a carbon content of 4. Typical changes in properties due fo ausfempering of an imalloyed iron are: If the carbon precipitates as carbide, the casting is said to foswco ‘white iron’ because the fracture has a shiny white bandbook.

The test mould also contains a thermocouple connected to a temperature recorder. Typical steel casting compositions of the above steel types handbokk given in Table 9. This type of graphite structure forms when a high degree of nucleation exists in the liquid iron, promoting solidification close to the equilibrium graphite eutectic. The designations of US Standards e.

However, as fhe melfing period decreases, fhe role of fhe cupola bed becomes more imporfanf. Feed defails can fhenbe programmed info a compufer. Reoxidation of steel during teeming is also a source of inclusions.
