Determination of feederless casting limits by thermal analysis in cast iron
In this study the determinations of melt quality was carried out by thermal analysis of ductile iron. The aim of the study was to determine the limits of feederless casting after the determination of inoculation quality in cast iron. Production method of pouring into a sand mold in the entirety and without using feeder systems has been investigated. Forms of the solidification and volume change have been investigated with simulation program as functions of inoculation quality, type of resin in the mold and mold rigidity. Results of the analysis have been compared with the results of experimental iron casting. © 2017, Polish Academy of Sciences. All rights reserved.
