Continuous casting with a constant melting flow

Uniform casting properties for optimum product quality

Your benefits:

  • Optimum process continuity
  • Maximum steel quality without bubbles and crystals
  • High productivity due to fast cycle times

Only with a uniform fluid ability of molten metal, high levels of purity for your products can be guaranteed. A key factor for the product quality is an exact dosing of the amount of gas (argon), which also has to be on time. These requirements can be accomplished with the help of Bürkerts mass flow controllers (MFCs).

As a result of pressure drop, the most critical step when casting is to open the gate valve which pours the molten metal into the tundish. To prevent air entering the gate valve, pressurization with argon is generated. The molten metal is stored in the tundish temporarily. An argon diffusor helps to keep the mass of molten metal moving. Argon is introduced into the stopper mechanism before it opens and the molten metal flows into the nozzle. This helps improving the flow characteristics of the molten metal. The quality of the continuous casting process is thus optimised.
