Patent Number Title Of Patent Date Issued
RE32932 Cold hearth refining May 30, 1989
In the particular embodiment of an electron beam cold hearth refining arrangement described in the specification, two separate hearth segments are disposed at right angles to each other and raw material is supplied to a melt area at the end of the first hearth segment remote from the sec
5291940 Static vacuum casting of ingots March 8, 1994
In the disclosed embodiments, vacuum casting of metal ingots is effected by melting metal in a hearth, directing molten metal from the hearth through a hearth outlet to one of a series of mold segments positioned on the periphery of a rotatable drum, and directing an energy beam from an
5222547 Intermediate pressure electron beam furnace June 29, 1993
In the representative embodiment described in the specification, an electron beam furnace has an evacuation system which maintains the interior of the furnace at a pressure in the range from about 50 microns Hg to 300 microns Hg. The relatively high pressure reduces degassing time fr
5171357 Vacuum processing of particulate reactive metal December 15, 1992
In the particular embodiments described in the specification, a vacuum furnace includes a hearth having a melting region and a refining region and a particulate metal supply tube for conveying particulate metal to one side of the melting region. Three water-cooled shield members surround
5100463 Method of operating an electron beam furnace March 31, 1992
In the representative embodiment described in the specification, an electron beam furnace has an evacuation system which maintains the interior of the furnace at a pressure in the range from about 50 microns Hg to 300 microns Hg. The relatively high pressure reduces degassing time fr
5084090 Vacuum processing of reactive metal January 28, 1992
In the particular embodiments described in the specification, a vacuum furnace includes a conveying arrangement for holding four solid metal members with their end faces in closely-spaced relation and an energy beam gun directs energy to the adjacent faces to melt the metal. Metal ejecte
4961776 Cold hearth refining October 9, 1990
In the particular embodiments of the invention described in the specification, a hearth for melting and refining metal has a hearth bed with cooling pipes so that a skull of molten metal is formed and energy input devices are directionally controlled to permit the skull to form a bar
4936375 Continuous casting of ingots June 26, 1990
In the embodiments described in the specification, continuous casting of ingots is carried out by transferring molten metal from a hearth to a mold through one or more flow channels which provide flow paths having a shallow angle to the horizontal and which terminates adjacent to the
4932635 Cold hearth refining apparatus June 12, 1990
In the particular embodiments of the invention described in the specification, a hearth for melting and refining metal has a hearth bed with cooling pipes so that a skull of molten metal is formed and energy input devices are directionally controlled to permit the skull to form a bar
4838340 Continuous casting of fine grain ingots June 13, 1989
In the representative embodiment described in the specification, continuous casting of fine-grain ingots is effected by supplying molten metal to a mold in which the metal is solidified and an ingot is withdrawn downwardly and controlling the temperature in the central region of the molt
4823358 High capacity electron beam cold hearth furnace April 18, 1989
In the particular embodiment of an electron beam furnace arrangement described in the specification, an electron beam gun unit is supported on rails for motion between two hearth and casting units, each having a lid to seal the unit when the electron beam gun unit is not in place. Sealin
4750542 Electron beam cold hearth refining June 14, 1988
In the particular embodiment of an electron beam cold hearth refining arrangement described in the specification, two separate hearth segments are disposed at right angles to each other and raw material is supplied to a melt area at the end of the first hearth segment remote from the sec
4616363 Electron-beam furnace with magnetic stabilization October 7, 1986
An electron-beam furnace for melting and refining metals in a trough-like hearth by scanning high-intensity, narrow electron beams across the hearth is provided with a wire coil located near the hearth for producing a relatively weak magnetic field in the vicinity of the molten metal in
