Abstract Scope Casting operations utilizing induction furnaces for metal melting are under constant pressure for improved metal quality, lower refractory costs, extended operations, and cleaner environmental working conditions for their employees with respect to respirable crystalline silica exposure. A number of engineered ceramic material solutions for coreless induction linings are presented in this paper with respect to these issues. Boron free binders to improve product quality; optimization of the lining campaign and refractory costs by zoning; and reduction in exposure to crystalline silica. These solutions are already in applications in the induction melting industry showing positive results.
