graphite flotation in ductile iron castings

Graphite flotation in ductile iron castings: definition

Nov 01, 1990 Carbon float is defined as carbon segregation at the top surfaces of ductile iron castings caused by the buoyancy of graphite particles in liquid iron. Flotation of hypereutectic nodules occurs in ductile irons having carbon equivalents greater than 4.5 as defined by the expression CE = C% + (Si% /

Ductile Iron Data Section 3 Part 1

The most important and distinguishing microstructural feature of all Ductile Irons is the presence of graphite nodules which act as "crack-arresters" and give Ductile Iron ductility and toughness superior to all other cast irons, and equal to many cast and forged steels.

Graphite flotation GIESSEREILEXIKON.COM

Flotation of graphite influences expansion and contraction of the cast iron during eutectic solidification and thus also interferes with seal feeding. Irregular distribution of the graphite results in inconsistent properties throughout the casting. The densiti difference between liquid iron and graphite is

A Possible Mechanism for the Formation of Exploded

In hypereutectic nodular cast irons, primary precipitation of graphite may lead to graphite flotation in thick section castings. Graphite degeneracy such as so-called exploded graphite is then often associated with this flotation phenomenon and it appears as precipitates where the nodular form is replaced by star-like or flower-like shape.

Floating defect of graphite in ductile iron casting ZHY

However, for heavy section ductile iron castings, the mass fraction range of carbon equivalent should be reduced to 4.3-4.4%, otherwise, graphite floating will occur. If the heavy section ductile iron is cooled by metal mold, the carbon equivalent will be increased to 4.6-4.7%, and graphite will not float.

Heavy section ductile iron castings can be prone to exploded nodules, chunky graphite and graphite flotation which reduce mechanical properties. To eliminate these defects, you can use dynamic, customised inoculation to control the point at which graphite precipitation starts during solidification.

Ductile iron Wikipedia

Ductile iron, also known as ductile cast iron, nodular cast iron, spheroidal graphite iron, spheroidal graphite cast iron and SG iron, is a type of graphite-rich cast iron discovered in 1943 by Keith Millis. While most varieties of cast iron are weak in tension and brittle, ductile iron has much more impact and fatigue resistance, due to its nodular graphite inclusions.

Ductile Castings Benefits And Defects: By Leading Foundry

Mar 13, 2015 Ductile iron castings are made by adding magnesium/ cerium to cast iron and it was initially experimented in 1943. While maximum varieties of cast iron are brittle, ductile iron castings are a way different due to presence of nodular graphite. Solid ductile castings possess about perfect graphite spheres that make it ductile and less brittle.

Teknik Pengecoran Logam: Ductile Iron Treatment

Obviously the levels of Mg and rare earths do not stay the same throughout the pour in a batch system due to fading of active elements with time. From figure 3 there is no vermicular graphite shown when there is no rare earths in the iron. Ductile iron with only magnesium will revert to grey iron without going through a vermicular graphite form.
