Product Introduction:

Minex Continuous Casting Mould Fluxes are synthetic slags used to cover the liquid steel meniscus in the continuous casting of steel with submerged entry nozzle practice & sold under the Brand name MINTHERM.

Mintherm Casting Powders are scientifically formulated with carefully selected raw materials & have controlled chemical composition , particle size , melting characteristics & melt viscosity to achieve highly satisfactory performance.

Functions of Mintherm Casting Powders :

Mintherm forms three distinct layers when it comes in contact with liquid steel.

[1] Powder layer : It is the uppermost one providing Thermal insulation preventing premature freezing of steel , skull formation and compensates continuously for the loss of the molten slag. It also protects the meniscus from reoxidation avoiding direct contact with air.

[2] Viscous layer : absorbs the non metallic inclusions.

[3] Liquid Layer : its in intimate contact with liquid steel providing necessary lubrication to the solidifying strand by infiltrating between the solidifying shell & copper mold.

Casting powders monitor the heat transfer rate , reduce cooling stresses in the strand and control the meniscus characteristics reducing Oscillating marks and Transverse cracks.

Advantages of granules over fines : panerai replica watches

[1] Homogeneity in Chemical properties

[2] Low Bulk density , better insulation

[3] Better spreading & covering

[4] Less consumption

[5] Autofeeding possible

[6] No Dust ,hence environmentally clean

Performance of MINTHERM can be influenced by SEN design & practice and Quality of Steel making.
