The heating rate depends on the size of the furnace and the manufacturer’s recommendations should be followed.

When melted, the oxidisable alloys are added and the melt brought to the required temperature then tapped as quickly as Melting and treatment of steel for casting possible.

Hndbook or reducing fhe air supplied fo fhe cupola burns more or less nandbook and increases or reduces fhe melfing rafe. The electrodes are made of graphite and are consumed during operation through oxidation, volatilisation and breakage so they must be replaced as necessary. Inhalation of silica dust presents a hazard and respirators should be used during installation or wrecking of the lining. Even if the sulphur is adequately neutralised with Mn, if the high S slag is trapped in the casting, it can cause blowhole defects beneath the casting skin.

Vibrate for 15 minutes.

Electric furnace melting is necessary because of their low carbon content. The amounf of wire needed is dependenf on fhe sulphur confenf of fhe base iron, fhe femperafure of fhe iron and fhe reacfivify of fhe wire used. In addition the quality of the graphite nodules deteriorates and quasi-flake nodules may occur.

The following table indicates typical grades of iron used for making certain types of casting. Grey cast iron 39 Sulphur. This remains in place when fhe hof face is knocked ouf. Malleable iron was widely used for automotive and agricultural components, pipe fittings, valves etc.


There are two main hanbook of inoculation, foseck and late inoculation. Many slags are liquid and of low viscosify and difficulf fo collecf, fhey can be coagulafed by adding SLAX.

It is important to remember that the residual magnesium in the liquid iron after treatment oxidises continuously at the metal surface, causing loss of magnesium which may affecf fhe sfrucfure of fhe graphife spheroids, moreover fhe dross formed may resulf in harmful inclusions in fhe casfings. Handbkok for ductile cast iron Table 6.

Types handobok cast iron 2. However, attention should be paid to the International Standard ISO Steel Hamdbook, General Technical Delivery Requirements which specifies the methods of testing steel castings and other matters which need to be agreed between purchaser and supplier. Elecfrosfafic precipifafors are efficienf buf are expensive and require specialised mainfenance, fhey are uncommon on foundry cupolas.

While a number of elements, such as cerium, calcium and lithium are known to develop nodular graphite structures in cast iron; magnesium treatment is always used in practice.

Alfhough fhe fine flakes Grey cast iron 37 increase the strength of the eutectic, this morphology is undesirable because it prevents the formation of a fully pearlific mafrix. The coreless furnace can be designed fo operafe af any frequency from 50 Hz upwards.

Malleable iron has a long hisfory, whifeheart iron having been developed in by the French metallurgist, Reaumur, while blackheart iron was developed in the USA in This is usually done in a salt bath Fig. Lead, usually from leaded free-cuffing sfeel scrap. A typical cycle is about 48 hours long Fig. Compacted graphite iron is also used for this application see p.

The molten metal stream is directed away from the pocket. The installed lining cost is around 2. The working face is formed by compacting the refractory behind a steel former concentrically placed within the coil. This may lead to distortion of weldmenfs or even failure in highly stressed components.


Nitrogen usually arises during cupola melting, particularly if high steel charges are used, but the use of moulds and cores containing high nitrogen resins can also cause problems. Wet scrubbers, bag filters and electrostatic precipitators can be used. Silicon contents of grey iron are generally around 2.

A wide range of charge materials can be used. The lining is designed to fit accurately into the ladle shell. Anofher problem is fhaf fhe only way of changing fhe composifion of fhe liquid iron is fo change fhe make-up of fhe hahdbook, and if usually fakes around an hour before fhe change is seen af fhe fap-hole.

Ferrific irons can be produced as-casf or by armealing. Malleable iron is still widely used for small pipe fittings, electrical fittings and builders hardware, particularly for thin section castings and castings which are subsequently galvanised. The graphite then precipitates in the form of spheroids. After pouring, it must be allowed to cool in the mould to a foseck red heat c.

Sulphides Hadnbook the tensile strength of the steel increases, so the harmful effect of fosedo increases.

Heat treatment of the castings will eliminate carbides in thin sections, produce more consistent matrix structures and for a given structure, the mechanical properties are often improved by heat treatment, especially by normalising. Optimum cupola performance is achieved wifh coke in fhe size range mm, if smaller coke is used, mefal femperafure is reduced and a higher blasf pressure is hzndbook fo deliver fhe required amounf of air fo fhe cupola.

The material must be properly vented, by hanging rods between the ladle shell and the lining.
