Castrip® process was developed to continuously produce ultra-thin strip based on twin-roll casting concept. Two individual solid shells are formed on each water-cooled cooper roll and brought together at nip point. The strip formed at the nip point is then guided through one pinch roll and one hot rolling stand to be reduced to desired thickness which is normally below 2.0mm. Castrip® process makes it possible to produce thin flat-rolled sheet with fewer steps. Also, the fast solidification and casting steel at or near its final thickness reduce significant amount of energy consumption. This paper summarizes the energy utilization in Castrip® process and also compares it with other conventional casting processes.
