Horizontal Continuous Casting Machine
Horizontal casting machines. These are widely used for manufacture of
copper based alloys, specially higher diameter rods, strips & tubes. The
main advantage of horizontal process is high value of production for higher
sizes of rods, strips & tubes homogeneity of alloying elements and large
dendritic grain structure.

The concept of continuous casting is a melting cum
holding furnace with a graphite crucible heated with highly efficient
graphite resistant heating elements furnace with a cooler, together with
graphite die and cooler assembly and run out track with withdrawal machine
and cut-off device. Molten metal flows from the crucible into the graphite
casting die which is cooled with the help of a highly efficient cooling
Water-cooled graphite dies are attached horizontally to the holding
crucible. During the continuous casting operation metal flows into the
graphite casting die where it solidifies. The solidified strands are
intermittently withdrawn in a "pull-pause" sequence by means of
withdrawal equipment. After leaving the graphite die, which is housed within
the primary cooler, the cast strands pass through a secondary cooler in the
form of a water 'sparge' which removes the surplus heat contained in the
solidified billet. Water 'sparge cooling' beyond the exit of the die is much
more thermal efficient than using a graphite water-cooled sleeve cooler.
The machine is well insulated with a low thermal mass high temperature
zirconia ceramic modules for high thermal efficiency.
The majority of continuous casting installations in use today operate in
the horizontal mode. The reason for this is mainly logistic, based on ease
of product handling and to some extent safety in operation. There are, of
course inherent problems applying horizontal as opposed to vertical casting
mainly to gravity-induced directional cooling. However, in most cases These
difficulties can be accommodated.
The horizontal continuous casting machines are graphite resistant heated
furnace. A graphite crucible and die assemble is heated with a set of
graphite heaters. The heaters have specifically been designed for having a
balanced three phase system which makes it easier to operated on A
generator. The graphite heaters are placed in the areas where the heating is
actually required to have the maximum utilization of the heat & be user
