Introduction As a kind of grinding body, grinding ball requires high hardness, the higher the hardness, the better the wear resistance. From the carbon content of the grinding ball: With the increase of carbon content of the grinding ball, the higher the hardness of the grinding ball, the greater the wear resistance, when the carbon […]
EUTECTIC TRANSFORMATION OF NODULAR CAST IRON The eutectic transformation of spheroidal graphite cast iron is not as obvious as that of gray iron, although graphite is first precipitated and austenite is then precipitated, graphite plays a less dominant role in the Eutectic Solidification process coexisting and coexisting under conditions of common and liquid contact.
Third. 3. EUTECTIC TRANSFORMATION AND NUCLEATION OF CAST IRON Both gray cast iron and ductile iron are EUTECTIC FE-C alloys, and eutectic transformation is the most important step in the solidification process. Although primary austenite is precipitated in hypoeutectic cast iron, eutectic cast iron, and hypereutectic cast iron, however, the eutectic transformation does not rely […]
Morphology of primary AUSTENITE DENDRITE The Crystal Lattice of austenite is face-centered cubic. When the AUSTENITE is nucleated and grown directly from the liquid iron, the AUSTENITE is stable only when the surface energy is minimum and octahedral crystal is formed. Then, because the concentration gradient of solute in the liquid iron at the edge […]
Second. Primary AUSTENITE DENDRITE IN CAST IRON Due to the mechanical properties, Gray cast iron is usually hypoeutectic, and there will be primary austenite dendrite in solidification structure. Under the condition of special properties of cast iron (such as high thermal conductivity and good shock absorption), gray cast iron with near Eutectic or hypereutectic composition […]
