The corrosion numbers at 1000 hr were also close to values reported by Mol where a similar pretreatment, deoxidizer, and chromate conversion coating were used.
The foundry focused on eliminating the problems caused by higher aluminum additions so that a higher concentrated final deoxidizer could be used.
In this case, an additional final deoxidizer was needed.
02% aluminum combination was used as a final deoxidizer, and then gradually aluminum was excluded completely.
Once the foundry switched to titanium as its final deoxidizer, the tensile and yield strength and elongation measurements improved, eliminating this problem.
However, the final deoxidizer, whether titanium or aluminum, is only a part of the solution.
Charges consist of 40-60% foundry returns with the balance made up of low carbon iron or 1010 steel, ferroalloys and deoxidizers.
Theoretical analysis of the processes and material balance of the steel deoxidizers (calcium and aluminium) at all stages of ladle treatment showed that although << excessive >> amount of calcium during casting and crystallization of metal in the mould (weight of the ingot equaled 3.
Crystal-chemical structure of multiphase oxide inclusions is determined by physical-chemical state of the pool, sequence of introduction of the deoxidizers, and interaction of dissolved in the metal elements.
It should be noted that according to valid normative-technical documentation addition of deoxidizers and modifiers without limitation of their kinds and residual contents is allowed in melting of the 20GL steel for transport machine building.
