Magnetodynamic Mixer-Batcher for Overheating and Pouring of Cast Iron
Magnetodynamic mixer-batcher is intended for adjustable inductive heating and controlled electromagnetic pouring of cast iron into crystallizers and moulds on automated casting lines, chill-mould casting machines, rotor casting machines. Also, mixer-batcher allows realizing the out-of-furnace treatment of liquid alloys. In comparison with conventional ladle pouring of grey cast iron, application of magnetodynamic mixer-batcher allows to reach more isotropic structure and properties on casting body, to increase 5-10% the mechanical properties of castings, and to refine both the metal matrix structure and dimensions of graphite inclusions. Moreover, using of magneto-dynamic mixers-batchers provides automation of pouring, economy of materials and energy re-sources, increasing productivity, and improvement of ecology.
