- Effect of Al2O3 and TiO2 additions on the lubrication characteristics of mould fluxes
- Johnston, Paul W.; Brooks, Geoffrey
- The continuous casting of steel results in the absorption of Al2O3 and TiO2 by the mould flux. Rotational viscometry was carried out on fluxes used for the casting of various grades of steel with varying amounts of Al2O3 and TiO2 added up to 10% wt. It was found that Al2O3 increased the viscosity of all the fluxes to a significant degree, whilst the effect of TiO2 was dependant upon the temperature and flux saturation limits; both additions decreased the solidification temperature.
