So, in the course of the calculation experiment performance conditions of casting of cast iron batches of 100 kg mass (Figure 3) were developed, taking into account ensuring of stable casting temperature and change of the melt mass in the mixer and the inductor power.
Thus we recommend using a wax casting temperature with 8[degrees]C higher than flow temperature and a mold temperature between 30-35[degrees]C.
Wax heat quantity depends from wax mass, temperature change (wax casting temperature is 80[degrees]C and end temperature of wax core is 35[degrees]C)
and the wear and tear of the alloy on the diecasting tool is less than that of other alloys due to its lower heat content per unit volume and its lower casting temperature.
The maximum casting temperature measured reached a steady state after 15 cycles (Fig.
It was found that when the casting temperature was lower than required in one of the billet induction coils, "knit" lines subsequently occurred in the cast component, resulting in low impact strength.
Cool from casting temperature and artificially age or stabilize (without prior solution treatment).
Although the degree of surface wrinkling for any given casting temperature was not always consistent, deposits of shiny, silvery-black carbon always were present when low pouring temperatures were used in the casting tests.
The need for high casting temperature is accentuated by the necessity for superior furnace efficiencies and cleanliness.
