Continuous Casting Machine (CCM)

Filtech International's Continuous Casting Machine (CCM)

Continuous casting is a process used in the steel production industry to efficiently create high-quality steel products. The process involves pouring molten steel into a mold that continuously moves through a cooling system, allowing the steel to solidify and take shape.

One of the critical components of a continuous casting machine is the mold, which is made of a heat-resistant material and is designed to shape the steel into the desired form. The mold is cooled by water to prevent overheating and ensure proper solidification of the steel. The casting speed and temperature are carefully monitored to ensure the final product meets the required specifications.

The tundish and nozzle are also essential components of the continuous casting machine. The tundish is a reservoir that holds the molten steel and provides a continuous flow to the mold. The nozzle controls the flow rate and direction of the steel, which is critical to ensure the proper filling of the mold and to prevent defects in the final product.

Various technologies are used in continuous casting to improve efficiency and quality, such as oscillation, mold flux, and mold powder. These technologies help control the heat transfer and solidification process, resulting in a smoother surface finish, reduced internal defects, and better quality control.

Continuous casting machines require careful maintenance to ensure they operate efficiently and safely. Regular inspection and cleaning of the molds, tundish, and nozzle are essential to prevent blockages and ensure proper flow rates. Quality control testing and monitoring of the casting process can help detect defects and prevent production losses.

In conclusion, continuous casting machines play a critical role in the steel production industry, providing an efficient and cost-effective way to produce high-quality steel products. Understanding the various components and technologies involved in continuous casting can help improve efficiency, quality, and safety, ultimately contributing to the success of the industry.

Continuous Casting Machine

The billet continues casting machine can be designed as curved and vertical-bend according to the user’s requirements. it can cast carbon steel, alloy steel and special steel, such as stainless steel. The steel continuous caster mainly consists  of middle tank, crystallizer, vibrating mechanism, spindle rod, secondary cooling channel, a pull straightening machine and cutting machine. Filtech International can custom make CCM for different requirement in metallurgy.
