Understand the Effects of Zinc Penetration on Induction Furnace Linings … and How to Compensate for It

Galvanized steel scrap may be a source of iron units for foundries, and a source of contamination to refractory linings Diminishing electrical impedance Counteracting lining deformation Compensating in four steps

To improve corrosion resistance in automotive applications, a zinc coating is applied to steel sheet. While effective for its intended purpose, the zinc coating leads to problems when zinc coated scrap material is recycled as a base material for iron castings in foundries.

The ironmaking process requires some adjustments to minimize zinc contamination of the molten iron. For example, it helps to charge the zinc-coated steel scrap early in the melt cycle, allowing more time f
