CONTINUOUS CASTING METHOD

Prepared by:rattayya pechetti

The main feature of the process is the pouring of molten metal through a tower nearly 300m high. This replaces the casting of ingots, the removal of moulds from ingots, the reheating of ingots, and their primary rolling. To understand this plant, first we go to conventional plant After pig iron has been turned into steel, the white- hot molten steel flows into a huge ladle. The ladle is carried by crane and the molten metal is poured from it into a number of moulds to form ingots.

The ingots have to be allowed to cool before the moulds can be removed. And then the ingots are the carried to a mill for rolling. They are first reheated and then put between rollers.

Then the products emerge in a uniform, elongated shape , chopped off into convenient lengths, for use in the
final fabrication of steel products.

In the method of continuous casting dispenses with these separate and somewhat cumbersome stages. Instead of making ingots and then reheating them for rolling , molten metal is poured steadily from top of a tower into a long mould, cooled by a water, and the passage of steel through the mould is so controlled that the metal emerges from the other end in the shape of the products of primary rolling mill.

Molten metal is poured into a metal mould which is cooled by water without interruption by appropriate device. Thus, the casting solidifies and is fed still red-hot to a rolling mill or cut into pieces of required length. The withdrawal units are used to pull the solid product in a continuous length. Here the main task is to devise a suitable mould that will withstand the heat and fasten the solidifying steel into desired shape, without obstructing its steady flow.

Summary:Continuous Casting has evolved from a batch process into a sophisticated continuous process. In recent years, the process has been optimized through careful integration of electro-mechanical sensors, computer-control, and production planning to provide a highly automated system designed for the new millennium.
