Cast-iron blast-furnace cooling plates with domestically-manufactured globular graphite
The ZSMK Casting Shop has developed an environmentally safe process for fabrication of cooling plates from high-strength cast iron, and has cast several test samples. VCh50 cast iron (GOST 7293-85) with globular graphite, which is used to ensure that a ferritic base metal forms in the relatively large castings required for the cooling plates; a ferritic base metal is the most stable at high temperature, prevents cast iron “growth,” and prevents the parts from becoming warped in use.
