Paper Title:
The Effect of Semi-Solid Parameters on the Microstructure and Hardness of High Chromium Cast Irons
  Abstract

High chromium cast iron samples of 14% Cr and 24% Cr were produced in sand and permanent mold using semi-solid casting process. A series of experiments were carried out to clarify the effect of copper cooling plate and mold cooling rate on microstructure, particularly morphology and sphericity of primary austenite, hardness and heat treatment cycles. Results show that for 14% Cr and 24% cast irons casting at 10 and 15 degrees of inclined plate result in better sphericity and distribution of primary austenite and carbides. Moreover hardness comparison of both semi-solid iron alloys using copper cooling plate at of this special morphologies resulted from cooling plate investigated by making them heat treat at 1050 centigrade °C for 1 and 2 hours. Hardness results show both heat treated 14 and 24% Cr alloy in 1 hours have hardness comparable with those alloys traditionally cast optimum angles with respect to conventional casting show higher hardness in every condition. Effect but heat treated in 2 hours. Finally X-Ray diffraction pattern taken from specimens before and after heat treatment confirmed with observed phases in optical microscopy before and after heat treatment.
