Abstract [en]

This paper presents methods for making thin metal sheets in a single belt caster for continuous casting. Surface tension effects are found to highly influence the region where the liquid metal enters the conveyor belt. Tests with tin casting in a laboratory scale caster have been made. It has been found that an increase in liquid flow speed toegher with solidification of the liquid makes it possible to obtain a sheet thickness less than the natural film thickness of liquid tin. By use of inclined side dams to confine the flow on the belt it is possible to establish a thin liquid sheet with a horizontal surface even close to the side dams. Contact between the liquid metal and the side dams is established and maintained if the liquid has sufficient momentum perpendicular to the casting direction
