Abstract

"An assumption was made that extensive holding time of an inoculated gray iron melt would result in a loss of physical properties of castings poured from this melt. This theory was examined in both a literature search and by testing and conclusions drawn from these findings are presented and discussed. Although there is a great deal of data available which discusses inoculants and their effects, very little mention is made of the effect of holding time in any of this material. The results indicate that holding time is of considerable importance when dealing with inoculated iron, and that calcium silicon inoculant is a very effective inoculant when used properly. It was also shown that the size of the inoculant used has a great deal to do with obtaining desired results in gray iron castings"--Abstract, page ii.
