We at KEI melt & cast Brass through the Horizontal Continuous Caster. Brass is a metal composed primarily of copper and zinc. Copper is the main component, and brass is usually classified as a copper alloy. The appropriate amount of suitable copper alloy scrap is weighed and transferred into an induction electric furnace where it is melted at about to 980°C to 1180°C Temperature, depending on the composition. After adjusting for the amount of zinc in the scrap alloy, an appropriate amount of zinc is added after the copper melts. A small amount of additional zinc may be added to compensate for any zinc that vaporizes during the melting operation. Molten metal is transferred in the Holding furnace through Launders and then the material is fed in the water cooled Die, then after solidification it is pulled out in the strip form & finally in coil form.
We have 2 nos. horizontal continuous Strip Casting Lines Imported Wertli Switzerland Make for 3 MT coil weight & Indigenous .for 6 MT coil weight. One for Strip Casting of Copper & Zinc based alloys and other for Strip Casting of Copper & Tin based alloys, producing high degree of homogeneity inherent in the superior metallurgical properties in the finished products. Contemporary casting technology gives us the capability of producing long continuous un-welded coils of precise chemical composition. Computer controlled direct reading spectrometer aids in monitoring the chemistry of the molted metal.
