In the past, numerical modeling and measurements in the field have provided insight into direct chill casting of sheet ingot and helped identify critical parameters to achieve successful cast start-ups. The control of these critical parameters is of key importance to maximise performance and throughput of the cast house as well as to meet stringent client requirements. Among these key parameters, management of liquid metal temperature, at start of cast, is critical in regard to casting performance. This paper presents several process variables influencing direct chill casting performance such as ingot recovery, false start and ingot quality.
