Test of the out-of-furnace metallothermic and vacuum-induction methods of the al-zr-mo-sn master alloy smelting
M. Trubachev, A. Rylov, V. Chumarev, A. Larionov
Test results of the out-of-furnace metallothermic and vacuum-induction processes of the Al-Zr-Mo-Snmasteralloy smelting as well as the study of its composition and properties are presented in the paper. The data ofmixture compositions, its out-of-furnace and vacuum-induction smelting modes and results are given. The possibility ofthe Al-Zr-Mo master alloy productionwaste utilization as a major burden materialunder the Al-Zr-Mo-Sn alloy vacuum-induction smelting has been demonstrated. It was determined that the proven methods of smelting did not essentiallyaffect the phase composition and the structure of the Al-Zr-Mo-Snmasteralloy. The produced master alloy ingots are homogeneous in chemical and phase compositions. A density and a liquidus temperature of these alloys are acceptable for materials intended for use in titanium alloys manufacture.
Keywords: master alloy, aluminum, zirconium, molybdenum, tin, titanium alloys, structure, properties.
