Abstract:

During electrode slag casting of ingots, the liquid metal and, when necessary, the liquid slag are poured into the mold or the crystallizer through a hollow expendable or nonexpendable electrode. This improves the quality of the metal and the surface of the casting, increases the yield of suitable pieces and increases productivity. Author
