what are the reasons of hot cracking of castings?
- Dec 25, 2018 -

There are many reasons for thermal cracking, and there are many ways to reduce or eliminate thermal cracking. The specific measures are as follows:

1. Reduce the casting temperature;

2. Reduce the sulfur and phosphorus content of the magazine elements and appropriate addition of some rare earths;

3. Increase the gate or change its position;

4. Change the shape and position of the riser;

5. Set the anti-cracking rib at the concave corner;

Different steel grades, different smelting processes, different casting structures and different casting processes have different effects on hot cracking. Specific analysis of specific problems can find the correct way to reduce and eliminate hot cracking.
