An investigation of the effect of five different inoculants on the metal expansion penetration in grey cast iron …
The experiments show that the inoculation of grey cast iron will influence the metal penetration in areas with late solidifiion times and where the melt is in contact with the sand mould. In all experiments 0.14 % inoculant was added in the pouring ladle.

Investigation of ductile iron in mold treatment process …
Ductile iron was first developed in 1943 and it is widely used in automotive industry.The difference between cast iron and ductile iron is due to the presence of spheroid graphite in the matrix of ductile iron which is not found in brittle cast iron. Ductile iron possesses
ITACA Stream™ In-stream inoculation system
ITACA Stream inoculation system has been developed together with European foundries to inoculate cast iron with higher precision compared to conventional units. The starting point during the development was a conventional screw feeding mechanism with high accuracy and dependability similar to those used in most inoculation units, but that is where the similarities ended.

A study of sulphur effect in high silicon ductile irons: …
Using a 4.31% carbon equivalent iron melt, two low sulphur levels were investigated in an equivalent post-inoculated iron: 0.005 wt.% and 0.012 wt.% S, where the higher sulphur level was produced by the addition of iron sulfide after treatment and inoculation.
Investigation on Microstructure of Heat Treated High Manganese Austenitic Cast Iron
Austenitic cast irons also known as Ni-resist are an important casting materials and their use is justified by the specialist of mechanical properties which can be achieved, associated with their outstanding abilities on wistanding the effects of corrosion , heat and wear.
How to prevent the defect of broken fast graphite in …
(2) Inoculation: for heavy section ductile iron, when the nuer of graphite spheres per 1mm2 area is more than 60, there is no broken graphite. It is also effective for the nuer of graphite spheres in heavy section ductile iron to adopt late inoculation.
Properties and Uses of Alloy Additives for the …
In late inoculation, on the other hand, the inoculant may be added as a powder, an encapsulated powder, or a bonded or cast insert. Today, the bulk of inoculants are added in the ladle. However, due to metallurgical and economical considerations plus production restrictions, the practice of late inoculation has grown in recent years.
Metallurgy – South African Institute of Foundrymen
The inoculation of cast iron involves the addition of small amounts of a material “inoculant” to molten metal either just before or during pouring. Inoculation increases the nuer of points available for the precipitation and subsequent growth of graphite.

powerful cast iron inoculation. The ferrosilicon alloy contains levels of Calcium and Cerium that are adjusted to minimize chill formation and neutralize subversive trace elements in the iron. In addition, the inoculant contains small and controlled
Effect of Processing Parameters on the Mechanical …
The best inoculation procedure in terms of graphite nodules characteristics and mechanical properties was double inoculation with 0.8% inoculants added at first and 0.2% in the late inoculation step. The presence of Sb in one of the cast alloys controlled the growth of graphite nodules in these heavy section ductile iron castings; however low impact toughness was recorded.
