Modeling Study of the Influence of Flow Control Devices on Metallurgical Effects in a Large-Capacity and Deep Bath Tundish
Besides the function of molten steel supply in casting process, tundish has a capability of decreasing the formation of macro-scale inclusions and promoting the flotation of the remaining inclusions. So, the metallurgy worker has been concentrating on to elevation product cleanness by improving flow field pattern of steel liquid and increasing inclusion floatation efficiency. In this study, a large-capacity and deep bath tundish for Heavy Steel Ingot with different arrangement was compared by mathematical simulation and water modeling. The results show that with flow control, the tundish has an important effect on the fluid flow pattern and inclusion removal.
