Iron Casting Information and stats on the Iron Casting Process and Iron Melting can now be found at a new section on Metal Casting website that is all about how to cast Iron. The new Iron Casting section can be accessed by users and non-users by visiting the following web address: http://www.metalcastingzone.com/
Here is an excerpt from the Iron Casting section page on Metal Casting Zone:
“Iron castings can be referred to as products made out of melted iron molecules. These molecules are, first, poured into mold and allowed to cool. They are then extracted. The casting properties depend a great deal on the foundry practice. They also depend on the cooling rate. Iron contains huge carbon concentrations. This content facilitates melting, simplicity of casting, and machining. Iron casting designs have a great variation owing to the property of iron to resist shrinkage during the process of cooling. The end product attains a great reputation for its strength and durability. Tensile strength ranges between 20,000 psi and over 60,000 psi. The values of hardness (without heat treatment) range between 100 and 300 BHN.
Some factors need to be considered while buying iron castings. The first thing on the agenda should be, checking the quality of foundry used in products and procedures. This should be done because foundry practices determine the casting properties. The consumer might have a tough time in finding the apt one. Secondly, the concentration of carbon should be looked into.”
