Casting technology: How to make good use of carburizer in scrap steel casting production?

In the steel industry, the effective utilization of scrap steel resources has always been a topic of great concern. With the improvement of environmental awareness and the emphasis on resource recycling, scrap steel casting technology has been widely used in recent years. In the scrap steel casting process, the use of carburizer is a crucial link. This article will discuss how to correctly use carburizers in scrap steel casting production to improve product quality and production efficiency.

The background and significance of scrap steel castingCarburizer


Scrap steel casting refers to a process that uses scrap steel for recycling casting. Compared with traditional steelmaking production methods, scrap steel casting has the advantages of low energy consumption, short production cycle, and environmental friendliness. Therefore, in the steel industry, scrap steel casting technology is regarded as an important development direction, which helps to realize the recycling of resources and reduce dependence on natural resources.

The role of carburizer in scrap steel casting


Carburizer refers to an additive used to increase the carbon content of molten steel during the casting process. Since the carbon content in scrap steel is usually low, the chemical composition of the molten steel needs to be adjusted by adding carburizers to meet the requirements of cast products. The addition of carburizer can effectively improve the fluidity, lubricity and solidification performance of molten steel, thereby improving the quality and surface finish of the product.


The key to correct use of carburizer


Select the appropriate carburizing agent: During the scrap steel casting process, the appropriate carburizing agent should be selected according to different steel types and production requirements. Common carburizers include natural graphite, artificial graphite, coke, etc. They have different forms and carbon contents, so they need to be selected according to specific circumstances.
Control the dosage of carburizing agent: The dosage of carburizing agent should be reasonably controlled based on the chemical composition of scrap steel and the required carbon content. Too much or too little carburizer will affect the composition and performance of the molten steel, so precise measurement and control are required.
Adjust the furnace temperature and stirring method: During the adding process of carburizing agent, the furnace temperature needs to be adjusted according to the state of the molten steel. At the same time, reasonable selection of stirring methods can help the carburizing agent to fully dissolve and disperse, ensuring its uniformity and stability.
Maintaining a proper atmosphere: During the scrap casting process, maintaining a proper atmosphere in the furnace is crucial to the role of the carburizing agent. By controlling the oxygen content in the furnace and adding reducing agents, the utilization rate and effect of the carburizing agent can be effectively improved.


The development of scrap steel casting technology provides new ideas and opportunities for the sustainable development of the steel industry. The correct use of carburizer is one of the keys to improving scrap steel casting production efficiency and product quality. Only by fully understanding the role and impact of carburizers and rationally controlling their use can we maximize the utilization of scrap steel resources and promote the development of the steel industry in the direction of high quality, low carbon and environmental protection.
