2050 – 07 – Properties of Continuous Casting
A newer, and increasingly popular method of casting is continuous casting, which is also called strand casting. In this type of casting, steel is shaped and solidified at the same time.
Instead of casting the steel into molds, continuous casting runs an uninterrupted flow of hot liquid steel through rollers. The molten steel streams into a tundish, a receptacle that directs the steady flow of steel into the mold.
Next, the slab of steel is doused with water, cooling it down quickly. Then, steel is run through rollers to shape the metal. To finish the casting process, the portions of steel are removed from the slab.
This type of casting process is popular because the steel it produces has consistent quality and takes less time to solidify.
