Transition of Steel Flow Control Technology in a Continuous Casting Mold
It was explained that the purpose of the fluid flow control in a continuous casting mold is to improve the inner or/and surface quality of the products, and characteristics of various flow control method are discussed. Submerged nozzle design, electromagnetic stirrer, electromagnetic brake and soft contact casting are mentioned as flow control technology. Mainly, the explanation was carried out in detail on flow control technology using the electromagnetic force on the transition of past development. It is future important problem to understand the quantitative relationship between the quality of the products and steel flow characteristics in continuous casting mold.
