Ductile iron for Use at low temperatures
Describes the production, testing and requirements of ductile iron, usable at low temperatures (latest revision 2012).  
The book describes the common requirements according to international standards and customers instructions. 
The influences of chemistry, microstructure, free graphite and quality are discussed, each of them on the Charpy V value and the transition temperature. 
The tests concern all the common required tests as are mechanical properties, microstructure and free graphite, section and surface quality, with special tests at low temperature. 
The typical production aspects as well as the non-conformities are inventoried and described. 
Some application casting for the wind turbines are shown. 
In the attachments, special attention is given to Charpy V and tensile tests, the problem of graphite flotation as well as the important temperatures during melting (to achieve a high metal quality). An overview of the standards involved close the book. 
It is very interesting for engineering, sales department and quality department. It is also well suited for technical education. PDF-format / 174 pages / 12 Mb

High Chromium Nickel Cast Irons
It concerns the wear resisting white iron, well-known as Nihards. 
The first part of the book shows the international standards (up to 2007) and the required chemistry per type. The structure and the mechanical and physical properties are described as well as the influence of the working conditions. 
The production process steps are discussed as well as the commonly used and or required inspections. This includes the repair welding and the machining. 
Some applications are shown and the standards of related materials listed. 
In the additions, the coquille (metal mould) castings as well as the duplex castings are described. For the hardness, the relation between the different types is given. At last a special copper-alloyed type and grinding ball material is explained. 
It provides very interesting information for engineering, production and quality department.
It is an information source for the casting designer and user.  PDF-format / 187 pages / 2,5 Mb

Niresist - Austenitic irons
General information about AUSTENITIC IRONS (Niresists), type gray and ductile. 
After the general iron classification, the niresist standards, chemistries and applications are inventoried. Than the mechanical, physical and environmental related properties as well as machinability are shown. 
The production process is described from the pattern to engineering, moulding, melting, metallurgical treatment, pouring, finishing, repair welding and heat treatment. 
In the next part, all testing involved is described (mechanical properties, magnetism, corrosion resistance, residual stress and leakage testing). The most common non-conformities are mentioned: chemistry, free graphite, mechanical properties, physical properties (mostly magnetism) as well as the surface and section defects. 
In the attachments, the designation principle is explained and the special types (Niresist D5S and Nomag / Nodumag) are described. 
It is a must for foundry engineering and quality department.
It is very interesting for the casting designers and the inspectors of the users.   PDF-format / 327 pages / 27,8 Mb

Silicon iron
This books deals with SILICON iron, as well the lower alloyed (4 - 6 %) as the higher alloyed (> 10 %), gray and ductile type of iron (latest revision 2012). The book is divided in 2 parts because the materials are totally different concerning production and mechanical properties. The production is described concerning all operations: patterns, moulding and core making, melting, pouring, shake out, fettling and finishing. The potential heat treatments are inventoried and described as latest. The mechanical and physical properties as well as the other properties (corrosion, erosion, temperature stability, machinability and permeability) are mentioned. The common inspection and testing is inventoried. The standards and applications are given. It is very interesting as general information for foundry engineering and quality department as well as the designer and engineering of the casting users. Same items covered for the 14 - 17 % silicon iron. PDF-format / 129 pages / 2,1 Mb
