Takes about 30 seconds of operator time, results in 2 to 6 minutes
Phase diagrams measure the transition points from liquid to solid, from one structure to another.The Theory
Iron-Carbon phase diagram
Shielded wiring to prevent furnace power from getting into the measurement
The following slides are meant to show the capabilities of MeltLab. They show details that may be more complex than you would want to display to the melters. But they can be useful to the quality of the metal. Our philosophy is that it is better to have more than you need rather than to have less than you need. The graphs have been shrunk for this presentation.MeltLab Capabilities
If you have any particular alloy you need to measure, MeltLab has the capability to:
Measure any arrest point or phase change
Based on phase diagram or chemical analysis, develop equations to convert arrest points into chemistry
Measure and quantify the amounts of the different phases detected.Other Alloys
Gives feedback in time to make corrections
MeltLab is already two generations beyond what any other TA unit can do.
