Title

The use of air plasma spray coatings in the reduction of alumina clogging in the continuous casting of steel

Author

O. J. Rajtora

Abstract

"Nozzle clogging during the casting of aluminum-killed steels reduces both the productivity by slowing the casting process and the quality of the steel when alumina accretions break away from the clog and become entrapped in the cast strand. The objective of this research was to utilize thermal spray technology to modify casting nozzles and reduce or eliminate nozzle clogging. Experiments were conducted using a casting simulator, with bottom-tapping capability, to closely reproduce industrial methodology"--Abstract, leaf iv.
