Title Contribution to the safe operation of induction furnaces
Original title Beitrag zur Betriebssicherheit von Induktions÷fen [in German]
Bibliographic information Oct. 1988, Vol.75, No.22, p.656-657. Illus.
Abstract Induction furnaces sometimes release molten iron along with cooling water into a pit, which frequently leads to damage by explosion. An explosionproof pit is described, consisting of a 25-30cm layer of granulated slag with a particle diameter of 0.5-3mm, through which the water runs off quickly while molten iron is retained through sintering of the top slag. The slag is kept in place by a perforated sheet of clay-graphite.
