Subject: RE: Alloy for high temperature
I was going to
suggest researching refactories: ceramic like materials. But they would be
better for the furnace and the casting.
I would start with
what performance characteristic of the melting pots are they attempting to
improve? The flow of molten metal ? Reduce the amount of metal sticking to the
pot? Want to increase operating temperature? Maintain temperature for longer,
and slow cooling? Improved strength and
Once got the
characteristics sorted then seek out suitable materials, or combination of.
May be necessary to line interior and exterior to achieve over all objective.
Or may even be better to redesign the whole process, if fuel efficiency and
heat losses are an issue.
