Method, System And Apparatus For Continually Synchronizing Travelling Movement Of Two Revolving Edge Dams In A Continuous Casting Machine

View page
US Patent:
6386270, May 14, 2002
Filed:
Jun 18, 2001
Appl. No.:
09/883880
Inventors:
Nedeltcho P. Kandev - Quebec, CA
Jerome B. Allyn - Colchester VT
Dean A. Boozan - Waterville VT
Assignee:
Hazelett Strip-Casting Corporation - Colchester VT
International Classification:
B22D 1106
US Classification:
164471, 164481, 164431, 164507
Abstract:
Method, system and apparatus for controllably heating copper alloy dam blocks in revolving edge dam chains in twinbelt continuous casters by induction heating of thermally-sprayed ferromagnetic layers bonded in shallow depressions in such blocks. High thermal conductivity of such blocks advantageously quickly conducts inductive heat from ferromagnetic layers into the blocks. For casting a slab of electrolytic anodes having aligned opposed protruding lugs, such chains include uniformly spaced lug-molding pocket blocks. Periodic induction heating of ferromagnetic layers on dam blocks of one chain or the other keeps pocket blocks aligned as revolving chains travel downstream along opposite sides of moving mold casting regions. Directly induction heating copper alloy dam blocks is very impractical. Therefore, ferromagnetic layers are thermally sprayed into depressions in blocks prior to assembling such chains.

Edge Dam Tensioning And Sealing Method And Apparatus For Twin-Belt Continuous Casting Machine

US Patent:
49344412, Jun 19, 1990
Filed:
Aug 12, 1987
Appl. No.:
7/085270
Inventors:
John F. B. Wood - Burlington VT
Timothy D. Kaiser - Colchester VT
Jerome B. Allyn - Colchester VT
Charles D. Dykes - Milton VT
Frank E. Kalaskie - Colchester VT
Robert J. Carmichael - Colchester VT
Charles R. Simon - Williston VT
Assignee:
Hazelett Strip-Casting Corporation - Colchester VT
International Classification:
B22D 1106
US Classification:
164452
Abstract:
For closing gaps between blocks of a moving edge dam prior to its travelling downstream into the entrance of a moving mold defined between upper and lower revolving casting belts moving downstream from the mold entrance to its exit, the moving edge dam is initially elevated into a crest, as shown in FIGS. 12 and 14. This crest is above a plane generally defined by the lower casting belt travelling downstream. Then, a guide roller positioned above thrusts downwardly upon the moving edge dam bending it convex downwardly as shown at "B" in FIG. 14 for causing its dam blocks to press against each other for sliding them along their high strength endless flexibile carrying member, thereby closing gaps between the blocks entering the mold entrance for sealing the entrance against outward leakage of molten metal between blocks. The downward convex bending also produces desired downward pressure of the moving edge dam against the lower casting belt, thereby enhacing sealing action between moving edge dam and lower belt. The downward thrust of this roller is sensed for indicating the amount of tension in the endless flexible carrying member of the moving edge dam.

Edge Dam Synchronization And Tensioning Control Method And System For The Shaping And Profiling Of Continuously Cast Metal Sections By Means Of A Continuous Casting Machine

US Patent:
46948996, Sep 22, 1987
Filed:
Dec 3, 1986
Appl. No.:
6/937319
Inventors:
John F. B. Wood - Burlington VT
Timothy D. Kaiser - Colchester VT
Jerome B. Allyn - Colchester VT
Charles D. Dykes - Milton VT
Frank E. Kalaskie - Colchester VT
Robert J. Carmichael - Colchester VT
Charles R. Simon - Williston VT
Assignee:
Hazelett Strip-Casting Corporation - Colchester VT
International Classification:
B22D 1106
B22D 1116
US Classification:
164452
Abstract:
A method and system are provided for synchronizing the travelling edge dams in the continuous casting of metal slab, strip, or bar, thereby providing a means for the continuous uniform casting of longitudinally spaced edge shapes, contours, or profiles such as integral shoulders, lugs, lobes, depressions, curves, or indentations in the opposite edges of the cast product. Shapes include the protruding lugs, cast directly opposite each other, for suspending copper anodes in electrolytic refining-also the intruding, material-saving contours in the tops of anodes. A belt-type continuous casting machine is shown wherein two moving contoured edge dam loops each comprise blocks strung upon flexible endless metal straps. The moving edge dams on each side of the mold must be synchronized, regardless of disturbing thermal variations notably. "Back breakers" exert upward rolling contact force controllably and separately against each moving edge dam loop along its return path, thereby changing the local curvature and so adjusting the degree of mutual compression and closeness of the constituent dam blocks or the end-to-end spacing of the same.

Method And Apparatus For Continuous Casting Of Metal

US Patent:
54373263, Aug 1, 1995
Filed:
Jun 28, 1993
Appl. No.:
8/084352
Inventors:
Thomas S. Graham - Shelburne VT
Wojtek Szczypiorski - Colchester VT
Jerome B. Allyn - Colchester VT
Dean A. Boozan - Waterville VT
George Desorcie - Westford VT
Norman Bergeron - Burlington VT
R. William Hazelett - Colchester VT

S. Richard Hazelett - Colchester VT
Assignee:
Hazelett Strip-Casting Corporation - Colchester VT
International Classification:
B22D 1106
US Classification:
164481
Abstract:
Electrostatic application of a dusting of dry, electrostatically adherable, thermally insulative powder particles over a workface of a continuous metal-casting machine in which the mold surface or surfaces which provide the workface or workfaces revolve in a generally oval course. A dry dusting of protective powdery refractory material is applied to the workface after being entrained in an air stream and electrostatically charged by suitable electrostatic apparatus. The workface to be dusted is electrically grounded for attracting the charged powder particles for adhering them to the workface. The resultant coating formed by the dusting so deposited is remarkably uniform over a substantial area of the workface, a phenomenon explainable by mutual electrostatic repulsion of the dry powder particles being deposited. Continuously re-applied dusting over the workface during a continuous cast provides an immediately useful repair or replacement of dusting powder lost from the coating on the workface of a revolving mold surface during casting. The dusting may be removed at will by means of an air knife.

Melting Pot Apparatus For Use In A Continuous Casting Process

US Patent:
40109399, Mar 8, 1977
Filed:
Dec 26, 1974
Appl. No.:
5/536485
Inventors:
Jerome B. Allyn - Graytown OH
Richard D. Wileman - Toledo OH
John Kozak - Toledo OH
Assignee:
Midland-Ross Corporation - Cleveland OH
International Classification:
C22B 700
US Classification:
266242
Abstract:
An arrangement is provided for feeding a liquid alloyed metal under protective atmosphere into a high speed continuous casting machine for casting a strip of alloyed metal, preferably calcium lead which is subsequently formed into battery grids and the like. The arrangement includes a melting pot and specifically a resilient skid ramp in the melting pot which permits metal hogs to be charged into the melting pot in a nondestructive manner while supporting the hog at a fixed level in the melting pot bath to insure homogeneous mixing of the alloyed elements in the hog during melting thereof.
