Customer Case: Chilling Fact: You Can Save Money by Thermal Analysis
Our good friends at Torrance Casting (USA) performed tests by pouring molten iron into the cold box cores with wedge-shaped cavities.
The samples are then broken to reveal the fracture surfaces and measured for the chill depths. The chill depth is used as an indicator for the chilling tendency. However, the test requires time for sample to cool down to dull red before quenching; therefore, the test is usually conducted along with the pouring of the castings.
