An Investigation on the Impurities of Aluminum Alloy in Melt Furnace

Abstract:

Article Preview

The scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS) were used to characterize samples prepared from the surface scum of melt, the middle flake residues on the furnace wall and the “bottom bulk” after the A357 alloy pouring. The morphology and impurities composition of these features were investigated. Some of particles and regions in samples during the analyses were also studied in detail. The results of analyses show that the surface scum of melt include Al2O3, MgO or MgAl2O4; the impurities of the middle flake residues is comprised of Al2O3, MgO or MgAl2O4, as well as SiO2 particle, Al9Fe2Si2 compound and dimple like C-rich areas; the bottom bulk contains C-rich impurities such as Al4C3 or some of unknown phase or elemental carbon.
