Anti piping Compound

Range of Metal Treatment Fluxes

INTRODUCTION

APC is a homogenous compound in powder form used for topping the hot top in Ingot castings as well as topping the riser sleeves in foundry. It avoids heat loss from the top of feeder (Hot Top & Riser Sleeves) and keep the metal in molten form for longer time.We are selling this product under the trade name METALUXTM

 

FUNCTION

When APC Powder comes in contact with the liquid metal it gives an exothermic reaction with desired expansion. The burnt residue provides a strong insulation to the liquid metal which prevent heat losses caused by radiation and keep the metal in liquid form in feeder (Hot Tops & Sleeves) till solidification of casting body is completed.

Exothermic Compound

INTRODUCTION

Exothermic Compound is a homogenous compound used in steel castings to provide enormous amount of heat by exothermic reaction and gives metal yield of 35 % (min.). We are selling this product under the trade name METAMEXOTM.

 

FUNCTION

When required quantity of exothermic powder is added in the feeder (Riser sleeves and Hot Tops), it comes in contact with the liquid metal and an exothermic reaction occurs which liberates enormous amount of heat with 35 % liquid metal to overcome the short pouring as well as prolonged solidification of metal in feeder. After complete burning of exothermic powder required quantity of APC Powder should be added for the better result of exothermic compound in feeder.

Teeming Compound

INTRODUCTION

Teeming Compound is a flux used in the production of steel ingot through bottom pouring process. It overcomes several problems such as formation of surface laps and inclusions of refractory particles. It is also known by the name Bottom Pouring Compound. We are selling this product under the trade name METATHERMTM.

 

FUNCTION

When it comes in contact with liquid metal it gets fused and cover the surface of liquid metal completely and forms a low melting point slag covering the meniscus with thin layer. The powder layer on the molten slag insulates the molten steel and prevent oxidation.

 

Continuous Casting Powder

INTRODUCTION

Continuous Casting Powder is used in the production of finished slab and bloom through continuous casting process by providing lubrication to the inner surface of mould and right level of heat transfer. Casting powder should be tailor made to give satisfactory result as per the desired casting condition.

 

FUNCTION

Casting powders is added continuously to the mould and it gets fused when it comes in contact with liquid metal and form various layers above the liquid metal, it gives lubrication to the mould due to which liquid metal runs without touching the mould which in turn gives finished surface of slab and bloom. However, performance of casting powder depend on various factors like mould oscillation characteristics, steel making practice, mould level control and careful design and position of Nozzle to ensure good temperature and steel flow pattern at meniscus
