Estimation of Energy Requirements and Atmospheric Emission in Continuous Casting Process for Al Wire

Abstract:

Article Preview

Energy requirement and yield for production of aluminum wirerods manufactured by continuous casting process were investigated to enhance yield of aluminum wiredrods. Also, it was compared with conventional process including extrusion process. The enhancement of yield more than 30% could be accomplished through the continuous casting process. The conventional process including extrusion process for production of wirerods consumes more energy compared to continuous casting. In addition, a number of intermediate annealing may be introduced during wiredrawing process of wirerods manufactured by conventional process including extrusion process. It can be mentioned that continuous casting process is suitable process for wiredrawing process because it can save energy requirement not only during manufacturing process of wirerods but also during following wiredrawing process.
