Morgan Converter segments offer an economic alternative consumable for foundries converting cast iron to ductile iron using the George Fischer process. Produced in clay graphite under quality controlled conditions, Morgan converter segments are manufactured in a range of sizes to suit customers' requirements
The segments are placed in bottom of the George Fischer converter vessel to form a chamber into which the magnesium is placed from outside the vessel. When the vessel is rotated, the molten iron is introduced into the chamber in a controlled manner through holes in segment plate. The magnesium is then vaporised by the iron and de-sulphuries and nodularises the cast iron, producing ductile cast iron.
Morgan liners are moulded in rigid forms in order to ensure dimensional repeatability and product consistency. The Liners offers excellent service life due to superior erosion resistance in the critical areas where the metal contacts the liner and changes direction. High erosion at this point otherwise leads to excessive turbulence in the flow of molten metal and, in turn, increases the likely hood of quality issues in the finished pipe.
The fall chute liners are used in centrifugal pipe casting foundries to transfers molten metal from the ladle or furnace into the spinning pipe mould.
