• 75% Ferro Silicon
The use of high quality raw materials and the electric melting process yield a high quality and very homogenous product. Offered in Standard and High Purity grades in various sizes.
To obtain better control of the structure during the production of ductile iron, inoculants containing elements such as Calcium (Ca), Barium (Ba), Aluminum (Al), Lanthanum (La), among others, are added to the base metal to increase the number of nucleation sites during the solidification process. These nucleation sites promote the precipitation of the carbon as graphite, hence improving the properties of the nodular iron.
• Cored Wire
The process of alloy injection in Cored Wire form is used in metallurgical applications that demand strict control of the elements in the steel. This process has proven to be the most efficient method due the improved yields and increased metallurgical control it provides.
Some advantages of using Cored Wire include:
- Process simplification
- Process integration
- Production cost reduction or Improved Inventory Managment
- Improved efficiency
- Improved process control
Rima’s Cored Wire Injection Equipment was designed with the goal of improving the overall injection process of cored wires from an economic, time and efficiency stand point. The equipment is compact, sturdy, safe and comes with hardware and software, which allows precise injection of two or four wires alternatively or simultaneously.
