Continuous Casting Process Parameters on Central Defect of SWRH82B Billet


Article Preview

Continuous casting process parameters such as casting speed, superheat, secondary cooling water flow rate have greatly affections to central defects in SWRH82B billet. These parameters were investigated by the methods of chemical content analysis and etch test for macrostructure in some steel plant of china. The results shows that the central defect of SWRH82B billet can be improved when the superheat is controlled at the range of 15~25°C, casting speed is 1.80m•min-1 and secondary cooling water flow rate is 0.72 L•kg-1.
