Development of clean melting for superalloys with plasma arc remelting by David Brown Download PDF EPUB FB2

Vacuum arc remelting is a widely applied vacuum melting process used to control the solidification of segregation sensitive alloys.

It is most commonly the final liquid metal processing step before forging. The first furnace, resembling furnaces in operation today, was built by vonBolten in (Noesen ).Ingots produced by air melting, ESR, VIM, and EBM are utilized as electrodes in the.

Laser repairing and plasma arc repairing experiments on the single-crystal Ni-based superalloy DD(NiCrCoMoWAlTiTa in wt.%) were carried out in this paper, and the differences in microstructures and mechanical properties varying with depth between the two repairing methods were studied.

The method combines the possibilities of treatment of liquid metal with the electric arc in the gas atmosphere and the liquid slag and the advantages of plasma-arc and electro slag remelting. The technological possibilities, design features of melting systems and results of experimental and industrial melting trials of steels and alloys are.

A Review on Superalloys and IN Nickel-Based INCONEL Superalloy. electric arc furnaces, VIM melting of superalloys is much. including vacuum arc remelting (VAR). The project entitled 'Scaleable Clean Aluminum Melting Systems' was a Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) between Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Secat Inc.

The three-year project was initially funded for the first year and was then canceled due to funding cuts at the DOE : Q. Han, S.K. Das. Vacuum arc melting and electroslag remelting are used to further refine the ingot after initial VIM processing. In the VAR process, an arc is struck between the end of the ingot electrode and the bottom of a water cooled copper crucible.

The arc generates the heat to melt the end of the electrode which drips down into the crucible. Vacuum arc remelting and electroslag remelting processes are used to produce large (five tonne) ingots of nickel-based superalloys, titanium alloys, and other high-value-added alloys.

Hot working is a key process in the production of superalloys; however, it may result in the formation of inclusions that affect the superalloy performance. Therefore, the effects of hot working on inclusions in a superalloy must be studied. GH superalloy was manufactured, herein, by vacuum induction melting and vacuum arc remelting.

Hot working was performed by unidirectional drawing Cited by: 3. Main modeling challenges for vacuum arc remelting (VAR) are briefly highlighted concerning various involving phenomena during the process such as formation and movement of cathode spots on the.

Fourteen Pt-Al-Nb alloys were made by arc melting and studied in both the as-cast condition and after annealing at °C for h, using scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive x.

Vacuum arc remelting. In VAR, a consumable or non consumable electrode is continuously remelted using an arc in a vacuum environment. VAR melting results in alloys with very high purity and is therefore used to improve the cleanliness as well as refine the structure of VIM ingots. However, the entire ingot is not simultaneously molten.

Multiscale modelling of microstructure formation during vacuum arc remelting of titanium The development of vacuum melting in the s allowed very fine control of the chemical composition of superalloys and reduction in contamination, and this in turn led to a revolution in processing techniques, such as the introduction of directional solidification of alloys and single-crystal superalloys (Sims et al., ; Kracke, ).

The plasma beam cold bed smelting technology utilizes centralized, controllable and stable plasma arc to provide heat source. In plasma beam cold bed melting of titanium alloys, the volatilization of manganese (Mn), tin (Sn) and other volatile elements can be prevented, and the element content of titanium alloys can be precisely controlled.

The unique combination of attributes—high strength to weight ratio, excellent heat treatability, a high degree of hardenability, and a remarkable hot and cold workability—has made beta titanium alloys an attractive group of materials for several aerospace applications.
