    casting alloys, cast iron, solidifies in two different forms, gray and white (figure 1): Gray iron is predominantly obtained at low cooling rates. Its eutectic phases, γ - iron and graphite, are the equilibrium ones. White iron appears at high cooling rates and consists of γ – iron and the metastable Fe 3-C [2]. A grey cast iron pipe that has undergone graphitic corrosion often visually appears to be fine other then some general surface corrosion. However, due to possible subsurface attack a substantial portion of a pipe’s wall thickness can be converted to a weak and brittle graphite network with dramatically reduced mechanical strength.

    The temperature range for normalizing gray iron is approximately to °C ( to °F). Austenitizing temperature has a marked effect on microstructure and on mechanical properties such as hardness and tensile strength. The tensile strength and hardness of a normalized gray iron casting depend on the following parameters.   In concentrated H2SO4 acid as well as other acids, ductile cast iron is generally considered superior to gray cast iron, and ferritic matrix irons are superior to pearlitic matrix cast irons. In hot, concentrated acids, graphitization of the gray cast iron can occur. In oleum, non-alloyed gray cast iron corrodes at very low rates.

    The article describes the macrostructure and dendrite morphology of primary austenite. Eutectoid transformation in the solid state causes the transformation of austenite to pearlite and/or ferrite, producing the as-cast structure. The article discusses the observations of the graphite and ferritic/pearlitic structure in as-cast gray iron. Cast iron corrosion resistance is comparable to that of carbon steel or even better depending on the alloy content. In view of the high carbon content, graphite, which is cathodic compared with iron, forms in the alloy microstructure where it can be found as chips (grey iron) or nodules (ductile iron) depending on its composition and heat.

Solidification and graphitization of gray iron by C.D D"Amico Download PDF EPUB FB2

Several authors have studied the solidification of eutectic gray cast iron of flake graphite morphology (GI).Commonly, the eutectic solidification unit is represented by a nearly spherical shape of austenite and graphite, as shown in Fig.

is general agreement to consider that austenite and graphite grow cooperatively, being both in contact with the liquid by: The solidification characteristics and microstructure evolution in grey cast iron were investigated through Jmat-Pro simulations and quenching performed during directional solidification.

This study was undertaken to study the graphitization tendency with optimized properties for thin wall grey iron (TWGI) and predict the hardness and tensile properties by applying multivariate.

In the structure of gray cast iron, a large part or all of the carbon is solidification and graphitization of gray iron. book the form of flakes or nodules of graphite. Graphitic cast iron has a dark gray or almost black fracture (Xu et al., ).

Upon small degrees of supercooling, graphite is formed when the cast iron solidifies from its liquid state. Slow cooling promotes graphitization. In gray cast iron, the carbon that exceeds the solubility in austenite precipitates as flake graphite. Gray irons usually contain to 4% C, 1 to 3% Si, and additions of manganese, depending on the desired microstructure (as low as % Mn in ferritic gray irons and as high as % in pearlitics).

Pressure promotes considerable deceleration of segregation of graphite independently of the cooling rate. The appearance of cementite and needle ledeburite in the structure of hypoeutectic cast iron under the action of pressure is connected with superposition of the stable and metastable transformation ranges and a change in the thermodynamic equilibrium between graphite and cementite in the.

The complex metallurgy of gray iron and the effect of rather small amounts of minor elements in iron on the solidification characteristics of gray iron has attracted the attention of a number of metallurgists. Morrogh[36] has discussed the need for a better understanding of gray iron metallurgy.

Bates and Wallace[37] have shown the effect of. Graphite formation in the solid state is both in ductile cast irons and in steels strongly promoted by high silicon contents above 3 wt.% Si. The matrix microstructure in austempered ductile iron can be further refined by secondary graphite if the austenitization, quench, and isothermal transformation into ausferrite are preceded by an austenitization at a slightly higher temperature followed.

the graphitization ability of the cast iron increases, the melting point temperature and solidification shrinkage decrease and the fluidity increase. Ability of vibration absorption, thermal conductivity and machining Capability also increase [2]. In order to measure the cast iron alloys tendency to graphitization, the carbon potential.

Solidification cooling curve. The temperatures during the cooling period were measured using thermocouples placed at the positions shown in Fig. 2, as suggested by Sahoo and R-type thermocouples were used to measure the temperatures inside the cavity, and thin-walled alumina glass tubes were used to protect both of the thermocouples.

iron, melleable iron, grey iron, and ductile iron, and compacted graphite iron. In addition, there is a sixth classification, the high alloy irons, generally containing over three percent of added alloy, can also be individually classified as white, grey, or ductile iron.

L Microstructures of Cast Iron Janina M. Radzikowska, The Foundry Research Institute, Krako´w, Poland CAST IRON is an iron-carbon cast alloy with other elements that is made by remelting pig iron, scrap, and other additions.

For differentia-tion from steel and cast steel, cast iron is defined as a cast alloy with a carbon content (min%). Cast irons are alloys of iron, carbon, and silicon in which more carbon is present than can be retained in solid solution in austenite at the eutectic temperature.

In gray cast iron, the carbon that exceeds the solubility in austenite precipitates as flake graphite. Gray irons usually contain to 4% C, 1 to 3% Si, and additions of manganese.

Gray iron, or grey cast iron, is a type of cast iron that has a graphitic microstructure. It is named after the gray color of the fracture it forms, which is due to the presence of graphite.

It is the most common cast iron and the most widely used cast material based on weight. It is used for housings where the stiffness of the component is more important than its tensile strength, such as.

Another factor affecting graphitization is the solidification rate, slower the rate greater the tendency for graphite to form. Alloying elements like Mn, Cr, Ni, V, Mo, Cu, Al are used gray iron upto about % increase the yield strength and.

An extensive literature survey on the primary solidification of gray iron by the author [17], showed that all process variables that influence graphite formation, also influence the primary structure.

Further graphitization of the compacted graphite flakelets may take. solidification and subsequent cooling of near-eutectic nodular graphite cast iron, based on the internal state variable approach. The diffusion model of graphitization in nodular cast iron casting has been presented in [7].

According to [8] at the eutectic temperature, austenite dendrites and graphite spheroids nucleate independently in the liquid. * extrapolated data † conversion of one half of the carbon in the steel to nodular graphite For welded carbon steels, the most likely location for graphitisation to occur is in the heat affected zone (HAZ).

Wilson surveyed over carbon and carbon-molybdenum welded steel specimens removed from various types of refining equipment and found evidence of graphitisation in a third of the samples.

solidification rate of the SG iron is then about mm/h. This means that the eutectic solidification rate of the SG iron is much lower than that of the FG iron, nevertheless, the graphitization is poorer than that of the FG iron. 2 Sample preparations For the.

Carbon fibers, obtained by carbonizing poly(p-phenylene benzobisoxazole) (PBO) fibers at °C, graphitize extensively upon heat treatment at higher temperatures ( °C).

In this work, XRD, Raman spectroscopy, and HRTEM are used to monitor the structural and nanostructural transformations of the carbon material under heat-treatment at several temperatures in the interval – °C.

Gray iron, or gray cast iron as it is also called, is most susceptible to graphitization. The process of graphitization separates the alloy, creating free carbon (also known as graphite), which clumps together.

Graphitization occurs when the alloy is exposed to high temperatures (at least °F/ °C) for a prolonged period of time.mains in solid solution depends on the rate of solidification and cooling, on the inoculation practice, and on other elements that are added to either promote graphitization or to promote the formation of pearlite.

It is possible to produce the different grades of ductile iron by controlling the process variables to. Pure metals solidify with a solidification front that is very well defined and a clearly delineated solid-liquid interface.

Ductile cast iron solidification is characterised by a very thin solidified skin and appearance of different phases. The outer skin is formed being very thin in ductile iron; the expansion occurs due to graphite nucleation into the casting forces to the mould walls.
