Everyone has heard about aluminum ingots, but what is the specific content of aluminum ingots? What does it do? Today, I will take you to know more about aluminum ingots!
Aluminum ingots refer to pure aluminum and recycled aluminum as raw materials.In accordance with international standards or special requirements, and other elements, such as silicon (Si), copper (Cu), magnesium (Mg), iron (Fe), etc., are added to improve the casting process of pure aluminum and chemical properties and physical properties. The raw material in our daily industry is called aluminum ingot. According to the national standard (GB/T 1196-2008), it should be called “aluminum ingot for remelting”, but everyone is used to calling it “aluminum ingot”. After aluminum ingots enter into industrial applications, there are two categories: cast aluminum alloys and deformed aluminum alloys.
What are the common aluminum ingots?
Aluminum ingot for remelting–15kg, 20kg (≤99.80%Al):
T-shaped aluminum ingot–500kg, 1000kg (≤99.80%Al):
High-purity aluminum ingot–l0kg, 15kg (99.90%～99.999%Al);
Aluminum alloy ingot–10kg, 15kg (Al–Si, Al–Cu, Al–Mg);
Plate ingot–500～1000kg (for plate making);
Round ingot–30～60kg (for wire drawing).
How are aluminum ingots produced?
In the casting process of aluminum ingots, molten aluminum is injected into the mold, and after it is cooled into a billet and taken out, the key to the quality of the product lies in the injection process. The casting process is also the physical process of crystallization from liquid aluminum into solid aluminum. The process of casting aluminum ingots is roughly as follows:
Aluminium discharge – slag removal – weight inspection – batching – furnace loading – scouring – casting – aluminum ingots for remelting – finished product inspection – finished product inspection weight – storage
Aluminium discharge – slag removal – weight inspection – batching – furnace loading – scouring – casting – alloy ingot – casting alloy ingot – finished product inspection – finished product inspection – storage.
