Improvement of Porosity of Strip Using a Scraper on the Casting by a Vertical Type High Speed Roll Caster
Porosity occurred in the 5182 aluminum alloy strip cast by a vertical type high speed twin roll caster. The porosity was caused by high-roll-speed and low-roll-load. Improvement of the porosity was tried by a scraper. The scraper was mounted on the roll, and the scraper was moveable depend on the thickness of the solidified layer on the roll. The scraper scribed the semisolid layer to improve the porosity. The scraper was useful to decrease the porosity of roll cast 5182 aluminum alloy strip.
