Abstract

Vacuum fluidity tests were made on an Al-Si-Mg alloy melt using tubes of quartz and other materials as the mold. Fluidity was evaluated by measuring the flow length before solidification. Effects of melt temperature, suction pressure and tube diameter were determined. It was found that fluidity is four times longer in argon atmosphere than in air when organic coating is applied on the mold surface.
