Casting Case Study: Refractory-melt interactions

In the scope of the collaborative research center SFB 761, von Schweinichen(*) experimentally investigated the chemical interactions between a high manganese steel melt and different refractory materials employed in assembling an adequate casting system. Normally, when casting in an open atmosphere, one expects worse results considering cleanliness for a top pouring process (Figure 1) than …
