Description

Archives of Foundry Engineering continues the publishing activity started by Foundry Commission of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN) in Katowice in 1978. The initiator of it was the first Chairman Professor Dr Eng. Wacław Sakwa – Corresponding Member of PAN, Honorary Doctor of Czestochowa University of Technology and Silesian University of Technology. This periodical first name was „Solidification of Metals and Alloys” , and made possible to publish the results of works achieved in the field of the Basic Problems Research Cooperation. The subject of publications was related to the title of the periodical and concerned widely understand problems of metals and alloys crystallization in a casting mold. In 1978-2000 the 44 issues have been published. Since 2001 the Foundry Commission has had patronage of the annually published “Archives of Foundry” and since 2007 quarterly published “Archives of Foundry Engineering”. Thematic scope includes scientific issues of foundry industry:

  • Theoretical Aspects of Casting Processes,
  • Innovative Foundry Technologies and Materials,
  • Foundry Processes Computer Aiding,
  • Mechanization, Automation and Robotics in Foundry,
  • Transport Systems in Foundry,
  • Castings Quality Management,
  • Environmental Protection.

Abstract

This paper presents the findings of a study of gas emissivity and the volumetric gas flow rate from a patented modified cellulose mix used

in production of disposable sand casting moulds. The modified cellulose mix with such additives as expanded perlite, expanded

vermiculite and microspheres was used as the study material. The results for gas emissivity and the gas flow rate for the modified cellulose

mix were compared with the gas emissivity of the commercial material used in gating systems in disposable sand casting moulds. The

results have shown that the modified cellulose mix is characterized by a lower gas emissivity by as much as 50% and lower gas flow rate

per unit mass during the process of thermal degradation at the temperature of 900°C, compared to the commercial mix. It was also noted

that the amount of microspheres considerably affected the amount of gas produced.
