electromagnetic mixing

electromagnetic mixing

[i¦lek·trō·mag′ned·ik ′mik·siŋ]
(metallurgy)
Mixing of molten alloys by exposing the melt to a strong magnetic field while passing direct current between electrodes at opposite ends of the crucible; stirring action results from interaction of the magnetic field of the current-carrying molten alloy with the external transverse magnetic field.

The electromagnetic mixing, in combination with the effective means to separate electrically non-conducting silicon carbide and remaining SiO2 particles from the silicon melt by Leenov-Kolin forces and the control of the solidification front, is the proposed route to produce the solar grade multi-crystalline silicon blocks cast in commercial size in a unified process.
