After 6000 years of smelting history
The only complete method to analyze and to control the molten metal quality, with the goal to enable and to optimize the appropriate metallurgical treatments of the melt prior to casting as well to achieve the aimed final properties of solidified alloy, is the method based on the
Bulk Thermal Analysis - BTA
The bulk thermal analysis is accomplished with the numerical analysis of the temperature run of the solidifying melt sample - the cooling curve
- yielding the solidification rate to determine the actual solidification properties of the melt.
The Bulk Thermal Analysis is capable to determine the amounts of the constitutional phases, micro and macro crystalline structure, chemical composition variations in the grains, grain size and their orientation.
