Research of Short-Flow-Route Processes for Magnesium Alloys Prepared by Crystalline Magnesium
Long route and high inclusion content are two common problems existing in the present process for magnesium alloys. To solve these problems, a new process technology, in which the crystalline magnesium is used as the raw material, is developed. The process is melting flux→ adding raw materials in batches → stirring→ holding→ pouring (MASHP). The mechanisms of protection and purification mechanisms are also analyzed. The results show that the MASHP process has high protection and purification effects on magnesium alloys. By the in-batches addition mode of raw materials, no oxidation and evaporation loss of magnesium produce during heating and melting, and the inclusions that self-contained in the crystalline magnesium and that produced by oxidation during heating and melting can be minimized. High quality magnesium alloys can be produced by the new process.
