User Benefits of Modern Air mist nozzle and secondary cooling system technology
The demand for improved product quality and increased productivity has focussed attention on the need for more efficient systems of spray cooling during continuous casting. Nozzle characteristics msut be investigated and test procedures developed to mesure cooling patterns and heat transfer. Improved nozzle design and air/water systems gives in better water distribution and this reduces surface defects, corner cracking and core segregation. There are also important operational benefits which enable expansion in the product mix production capacity.
