The quality and profitability of iron castings are driven by the metallurgy of the melt, the design of the pattern, the productivity of the process, reproducible manufacturing conditions and the resulting properties of the cast iron material after casting and heat treatment.

Cast irons - Harry Bhadeshia
Cast Irons Miguel Angel Yescas-Gonzalez and H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia Cast irons typically contain 2-4 wt% of carbon with a high silicon concentrations and a greater concentration of impurities than steels. The carbon equivalent (CE) of a cast iron helps to distinguish the grey irons which cool into a microstructure containing graphite and and the white irons where the carbon is present mainly as
V Smart Carbon Silicon Analyzer (CE Meter), for Industrial …
It is a microprocessor based carbon silicon analyzer series designed for molten cast iron analysis. It is specially engineered to suit the foundry environment. It consists of special electronic hardware & software which automatically correct errors introduced due to derating/ageing effect of electronic components, ensuring long term accuracy of measurements.
Preparing Cast Iron Alloys - Metallography
Nodular Iron The addition of magnesium (''inoculation'') desulfurizes the iron and causes the graphite to grow as nodules rather than flakes. Moreover, mechanical properties are greatly improved over gray iron; hence, nodular iron is widely known as
Cast or ductile iron inoculant - Elkem Metals Company
1991/10/23· 1. An inoculant for cast or ductile iron, containing silicon, strontium and iron and/or copper, at least one of zirconium and titanium, and optionally aluminium and/or calcium, characterised in that the strontium is present in an amount from 0.1 to 10 wt%, the zirconium
Iron inoculation: an overview of methods. - Free Online …
1999/6/1· Meanwhile, for gray iron, late inoculation in the mold also may be the only step in inoculation procedure. Among the factors affecting an iron''s nucleation potential is the oxygen ([O.sub.2]) content in the molten iron, which is why preconditioning or X of irons is sometimes necessary for the production of consistent quality castings.
Appliion of double torsion test to investigation of the …
The double torsion test can yield valid fracture toughness values provided all the experimental conditions outlined are satisfied such as avoiding torsional warping of plates, avoiding ''end effects'', maintaining plane strain conditions, avoiding deep top and bottom grooves for thicker specimens, suitably modifying the standard calibration equation, avoiding excessive brinelling at loading
CastIron.ppt | Cast Iron | Iron
Advantages/disadvantages of gray cast iron The wear resistance of gray iron is very good, as graphite flakes act as lubricant. The damping capacity (ability to damp vibrations) of gray iron is superior to that of steel Can be alloyed to improve properties, e.g. Nihard iron …
CHILLED IRON - Hardened cast iron abrasive used for …
Cast iron grit for surface preparation in air-blasting CHILLED IRON is a hematite cast iron abrasive obtained by atomization, which is used for surface preparation in angular form, mainly in air blast machines. It could also be used for ballast, counterweight, inoculation
Effect of titanium on the near eutectic grey iron
The iron was melted in induction furnace in a batch of 15an 0 kg. The composition was near eutectic and was adjusted by addition of pig iron, cast iron , industrial grade returns silicon and steel plates. After pouring the first ladle of 30kg, ferrotitanium was added to
Gray vs. Ductile Shrinkage - MeltLab
Gray Iron typically runs 3.2 to 3.4 percent carbon while ductile is more typically 3.6 to 3.8 percent carbon. The end results are also a little different. Gray iron typically is pearlitic while ductile can be ferritic, 40-50% pearlitic, 80% pearlitic or even 100% pearlitic
Effects of carbon content and solidifiion rate on thermal conductivity of grey cast iron
210 CHINA FOUNDRY Vol.4 No.3 Effects of carbon content and solidifiion rate on thermal conductivity of grey cast iron Components subjected to heat require satisfying thermal conductivity in order to reduce the thermally induced stresses within the component.
The olume Deficit of Iron- Carbon Alloys - ASK Chemicals
The Iron Deficit of Iron Carbon Alloys Cast iron with nodular graphite shows a greater tendency for shrink holes than cast iron with lamellar graphite. If a gray iron melt is treated with magnesium, the shrink hole volume increases from 0.5 cm3 to 5 cm3. Unlike the

1 Nodulizing and Inoculation Approaches for Year 2000 and Beyond - Part 1 by Dr. R. L. (Rod) Naro ASI International, Ltd. – July 30, 2001 Original Paper presented June 15, 2000 DIS Meeting, Wichita, Kansas Abstract: Nodu-Bloc, a new iron-magnesium briquette, offers ductile iron foundries a powerful
Inoculation Mechanisms: Part One :: Total Materia Article
Through inoculation, the graphite nucleation and eutectic undercooling of the iron can be controlled and this will be of crucial assistance in giving the iron its required service properties. Grey cast iron with flak graphite precipitates carbon in the form of cementite and graphite during the process of solidifiion.
Cast Iron Solidifiion with Non-Contact Acoustic …
The influence of non-contact ultrasonic vibration on the solidifiion of gray and ductile irons has been evaluated with and without inoculation. Conventional instrumented cooling curve analysis samples were cast under a wide range of non-contact acoustic stimulation conditions. Ultrasonic frequencies between 17 and 18 kHz were evaluated at transducer power ratings of 1800–3600 Watts with
Paper: Effect of Chromium and Molybdenum Addition …
The effect of inoculation treatments was evaluated using 0.2% or 0.6% FeSi75 were also studied in an unalloyed base gray cast iron and in high-strength gray cast irons alloyed with 0.52% Cr + 0.52% Mo. A test casting was developed via a casting process
Investigation of inoculant effect on cast iron
improper inoculation technique. The strength of iron having Type B flakes is somewhat lower t~an iron having good Type A distribu tion. Type C flakes are referred to as superimposed flakes and i ndie a very high carbon content and poor strength.
Preparation of Cast Iron Foundry Alloys - Buehler
White Cast Iron The microstructure of white cast iron is best observed after etching. Figure 17 shows a typical example after etching with 4% nital. Note the interdendritic cementite (white) which ometimes has a Widmanstätten (‘spiky’) appearance. Austenite
Common Metallurgical Defects in Grey Cast Irons | Teknik …
- Under-inoculation or over-inoculation both increase the potential for shrinkage, the former due to the lack of precipitated graphite, Phosphorus has the benefits in iron of increasing fluidity and wear resistance when present in the right amounts. Less than 0.04

What is recalescence and why you should care ? - …
2015/12/14· Heavy section iron is usually cast as hypoeutectic (below the eutectic) iron. This produces abundant dendrites of austenite to quickly form wall strength and prevent suck‐in. Gates have to be larger to prevent the dendrites from closing them off, and heavy section risers are needed to feed the casting.
