Abstract : The program was designed to develop a completely integrated furnace- valve-mold ferrous casting system that will produce quality castings (in the five to twenty-five pound class) at a higher speed and lower cost than is possible by present casting methods. Efforts have been directed in three major areas: Design and fabricate an experimental melting and casting unit capable of examining several casting process possibilities; determine the feasibility of a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) valve using laboratory scale equipment; and, develop a mold coating for graphite or some other suitable mold material that will provide the properties required of a permanent mold in the automatic casting process envisioned.
