This paper introduces the various alloys of lead, the casting method of lead and the application of lead alloy.This article also details some important lead alloys and their use.The metal is heated to liquid and then poured into the mold-better understood as casting --Is a common way to create basic or complex shapes used in many applications.
This is absolutely true for lead casting, which is used in many areas, including large castings of lead bullets, lead fishing vessels and ship ballast keel.Other uses include a balance scale for lift weight and a lead bucket for nuclear storage and transportation.This article will discuss nuclear barrels in more detail later.
Because lead is very soft and tough, it often melts with other metals to produce lead alloys with specific required properties, usually melting with antimony, tin, arsenic, bi, copper and zincLead-SB alloy provides additional hardness for lead, which is usually used for battery grilles, plate lead and pipe castings.Antimony content of leadSB alloy can be from 0.5 to 25% but usually 2 to 5%.Lead-arsenic alloy is also used to improve hardness;Lead arsenic is used in cable sheath and is very important in the production of round drop lead pills.
Tin increases the extensibility and strength of lead.Lead alloys, either individually or in combination with tin, bi or other elements, form alloys with a particularly low melting point.Some of these alloys are called molten alloys;In particular, lead-tin alloys are used in lead welding and historically known as pewter.
Several types of lead-based alloys are called Babbit metal, lead Babbit, or bearing metal for the bearing surface of rotating bearings.Babbit will be discussed later in the article.The lead casting method is based on the type of parts to be manufactured and the resources available to the person who makes the casting, there are several methods for casting lead alloys.
Sand casting is one of the most popular and simple casting types in centuries.Castings can be made in various sizes, from parts that fit your palm to the entire train chassis.It may take a few days to prepare the sand casting mold.
Glue sand together using clay, chemical adhesives, or aggregate oils such as oil.In most operations, sand can be recycled many times with little maintenance required.Investment casting-(Also known as loss-Wax Casting) is a process that has been practiced for thousands of years and originally used beeswax, but today uses modern professional high-tech wax to make highQuality components.
The name of the investment casting stems from the fact that the pattern is invested or surrounded by refractory materials.The wax pattern is carved into an exact replica of the parts to be produced and then invested or surrounded by refractory materials.When the melted metal is poured into the mold, the wax melts and the metal occupies its shape.
Permanent mold casting-is a metal casting process using reusable molds ("permanent molds"), usually made of metal.Lead alloys are usually cast in this case. The die casting process forces the molten metal mold cavity (processed into a mold ).
Die casting methods are especially suitable for applications that require many small and medium parts with good details, fine surface quality and dimensional consistency.Centrifugal casting-Use a temporary sand mold fixed in a rotating chamber.An important application of nuclear CasksAn lead pour is for nuclear radiation barrels in which castings allow parts without seams, except for the lid.
Nuclear barrels are lead shielding containers for the storage and delivery of radioactive materials.Such as spent fuel or other highRadioactive waste.The barrel is usually made of lead, concrete and steel.
Barrels must meet regulatory requirements and are not suitable for long-term useTerm disposal in the repository.Spent fuel transport barrels are used to transport spent fuel used in nuclear power plants and research reactors to disposal sites.Each container is designed to maintain its integrity under normal transport conditions and under accident conditions.
The barrel is designed and tested to withstand collision, fire, immersion and puncture.To be certified, the barrel design must undergo a series of four tests to measure its performance under specific collision and fire accident conditions.Lead Storage and lead containers are a key aspect of nuclear containment and radiation shielding.
Dry barrel storage is a high storageRadioactive waste, such as spent fuel that has been cooled in the spent fuel pool for at least one year.The fuel is surrounded by inert gas inside a large container.These barrels are usually welded or bolt-enclosed steel-enclosed lead cylinders that provide leakage-Strictly seal the spent fuel and provide radiation shielding for workers and the public.
Plastic housing lead storage containers for radioactive materials, known in the industry as "pigs", the internal containers are solid cast lead containers made for nuclear material containers.Store your uranium ore, radioisotopes and other radioactive samples safely.Babbit prepared a metal alloy in 1839, successfully used as the bearing surface of the metal bearing.
Babbit metal is often used as a surface layer in multiple moving surfacesMetal structural bearings.Babbit metal is soft and easy to damage, so at first it seems unlikely to be the material for the bearing, but the detail structure of the metal consists of hard crystals embedded in softer materials, when this material is worn out, it creates a lubricant path in the bearing between the hard crystals that provide the actual bearing surface.Conventional Babbit bearings are cast around the shaft loosely embedded in the cast iron pillow block through a hole that eventually becomes a lubrication hole.
After casting the metal, cut the lubricating oil way back to the surface, and the bearing "runs" under low load and rotation "..The expression of "running bearing" also stems from this bearing, because failure of lubrication will result in heat generated by bearing friction and eventually lead to the liquefaction of bearing metal and exhaustion from the pillow block.Before the emergence of low-cost motors, electricity was distributed through the plant of the central engine, by running overhead shafts in hundreds of Babbit bearings.
Lead-based babbitts are more economical for low speed, uniform speed and medium pressure such as on-line shafts, motors and general purpose machinery.These babbitts are also used for applications that withstand impact loads.Lead alloys still have many uses today.In this article, we discuss many applications and composition of lead alloys.
We also discuss the production methods of lead casting molds and some specific uses of lead alloy pouring
