Optimization of Submerged Entry Nozzle Depth in CC Mould / Optymalizacja Zanurzenia Wylewu W Krystalizatorze Cos

Open access

The way and speed of steel flux flowing into mould of continuous casting (CC) machine belong to the important parameters characterizing the steel continuous casting process. Such flux causes determined kinds of steel circulation, which together with simultaneous steel crystallization influence the creation of ingots primary structure and quality of its surface.

The article presents the results of modelling research which aim was to determine the optimal location of submerged entry nozzle in square moulds (130 x 130 mm and 160 x 160 mm) of CC machine. Such a research was carried out for two different grades of steel (low-carbon steel and high-carbon steel), which feature different parameters of casting.
