A Continuous Fluxless Purification Technique for Mg Scrap Melt
In the present paper, the current state of magnesium scrap recycling via melt refinement was reviewed and the difficulties confronted in the developing fluxless techniques were highlighted. Then, the working principle of a fluxless technique newly developed in China was briefly introduced followed by chemical and light microscopy investigation of the processing quality of the recycled ingots in comparison with the commercial ingot produced with predominant flux processing to have a first insight into the difference of the two refining techniques. The results indicate that a stable, continuous and cost effective melt refinement can be achieved with the commercial Mg scraps in-house fluxless recycling system.
