Slag Resistance

The following article is from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979). It might be outdated or ideologically biased.

Slag Resistance

 

the capacity of refractory materials to resist the destructive action of molten slags. Slag resistance is determined by the loss in volume or weight of a refractory material upon the action of a slag and, in part, by the depth of penetration of the slag into the refractory material. Both static methods (dissolving of a refractory material in a fixed amount of slag) and dynamic methods (the action of a moving and removable slag) are used to determine slag resistance; a combination of the two methods may also be used. Slag resistance depends on the chemical nature of the slag and the refractory material as well as the density and structural features of the refractory material.

The obtained results showed that slag resistance to wear in the wet state meets the requirements of the highest class ([M.sub.DE]10), Table 4.
It should be noted that this scheme can operate only at a small interelectrode gap, otherwise, the slag resistance will not allow current passing even at high values of open-circuit voltage of the power source.
The weld field-immune version comes with an irradiated PVC cable for good weld slag resistance. The RO1 weld field-immune (or magnetic field immune) proximity sensors are appropriate for ensuring proper workpiece positioning in welding applications, where they can be installed near tongs.
Product features include: low weight, low heat capacity, low firing shrinkage (4-5%), slag resistance, thermal shock resistance, low levels of internal stress, exceptionally high creep resistance and high levels of hot strength.
Then maximum change of the slag resistance during growing of the drop may be written as [DELTA]R [approximately equal to] f([h.sub.dr], [[rho].sub.sl]), where [h.sub.dr] is the drop length before its break-off from the electrode end.
This series is made from stainless steel tubes with a PTFE coating for superior weld slag resistance. The sensing faces are also made of slick PTFE material.
