Tracing and analyzing the temperature of a cooling and solidifying iron sample is named Thermal Analysis. The plateaus of liquidus and solidus temperatures of the cooling iron sample in a cup allow the calculation of carbon equivalent, carbon and silicon. Relevant formulas in our instruments may be used to calculate physical properties of the iron casting.
Our range of QuiK-Cup cups (QuiK stands for Quartz insulated type K thermocouple) are designed for various types of cast iron, unalloyed, alloyed, solidifying grey or white and taken from Cupola through runner, furnace or tundish.
