The Continuous Elimination of Inclusions in Molten Aluminum by Direct and Alternate Electromagnetic Force

Abstract:

Article Preview

In the casting Al alloys, Inclusions are formed by various melt treatment and the some alloying elements have a bad effect on quality of products. Generally, inclusions deteriorate mechanical properties of casting products as well as provide heterogeneous nucleation sites of hydrogen porosity. But the difficulty of removing it is the fact that the inclusions are measured generally small about 20㎛ in the melt. So, in this study, Experiments were carried out on commercial die casting aluminum alloy A383 (JIS: ADC 12). The separation system including a D.C. electric field with steady D.C. magnetic field was adopted for reduction of inclusion in molten Al alloy. Also the quantitative and qualitative analysis of inclusion in Al alloy was taken by using the PoDFA (Porous Disc Filtration Apparatus) and EPMA.
