Chapter fosrco Ductile iron Production of ductile iron Ductile iron, also known as spheroidal graphite s. Selected pages Title Page. AOD refining AOD refining argon oxygen decarburisafion has been developed fo process alloy sfeels for demanding applicafions.

MgFeSi alloy is placed in a chamber moulded into the running system, the iron is continuously treated as it flows over the alloy Fig. Finally there are a number of special cast irons designed to have properties of heat resistance, or acid resistance handbok. The large number of specificafions may be judged from fhe facf fhaf fhe above book lisfs over Brifish specificafions alone.

In order to use high Mg alloys and pure Mg, expensive special purpose equipment is needed so the method tends to be used only by large foundries. Compacted graphite iron is also used for this application see p. It reduces the risk of chill in thin sections.

With higher frequencies, the power density can be increased to three or four times this level. The mosf common harmful elemenfs are: SLAX is based on siliceous minerals and reads wifh fhe slag fo increase fhe silica confenf, and hence fhe viscosify. So whereas in fhe pasf, choice of frequency was invariably a compromise because of fhe limifed range possible, now fhe correcf unif for fhe application can be supplied.


The metal is melted in a primary arc or induction furnace then transferred to a special AOD vessel with a controlled slag cover. Results 1 to 10 of Compacfed graphife iron has good casting characteristics, due to its high fluidity and goseco solidification shrinkage. Eliminating the coke eliminates sulphur pick-up, making the cokeless cupola suitable for the production of base iron for ductile iron production.

Hence coreless furnaces are much simpler and Figure 4. Between this and the hot face is a layer of ceramic fibre insulation.

Where fempered marfensife sfrucfures are needed, heaf freafmenf is essenfial.

The ofher major difference compared wifh grey iron, is fhe need fo feed ducfile iron casfings fo ensure freedom from shrinkage defecfs.

Carbon and Carbon—Manganese Steels Section 3: These figures should be regarded as approximate only, since the exact composition and state of heat treatment affects the properties. The long campaign hot blast cupola is considered by many to be the most economical method of melting grey iron for foundries. An approximate guide to variations in tensile strength with section thickness is given in Eig.

Immediately before use, the ladle should be filled with base iron from the melting furnace and allowed to soak for a few minutes before returning the iron to the furnace. Size of metallic charge materials Thin secfion fosecoo scrap below abouf 5 mm oxidises rapidly and increases melting losses.


Melting ductile iron base While the cupola can be used for the production of ductile iron, the need for high liquid iron temperatures and close composition control has encouraged the use either of duplexing with an induction furnace, or using a coreless induction furnace as prime melter.

Inclusions Inclusions in sfeel casfrngs can arise from slag enfrapmenf or from fhe erosion of furnace or ladle linings and refracfories. There are many variations of fhe basic arc fodeco process. In the formation of MgS, 0. Chapter 3 Grey cast iron Specifications The properties of grey iron castings are affected by their chemical composition and the cooling rate of the casting, which is influenced by the section thickness and shape of the casting.

nandbook Too high an addition will cause excessive attack on the refractory lining. For many years, the emissions permitted from cold blast cupolas were readily achieved by the use of simple wet arresters.

If air flow rafe is too high, around fhe shake-ouf for example, fhere is a danger fhaf fhe grading of fhe refumed sand will be alfered. A more reliable mefhod is fo use sachefs or precasf slugs of inoculanf in fhe pouring bush or in fhe running sysfem Fig. High steel scrap charges will require more inoculation.
