1 I I (Pressure die casting) 37 seen in the melting of aluminium and its alloys. Whether or not the films on the surface of the solid charge materials find their way into the liquid metal depends on the type of furnace used for melting. Furnaces such as tower or shaft designs are designed to provide a classical counterflow heat exchanger process; the charge is preheated during its course down the tower, while furnace waste gases flow upwards. The base of such a tower is usually a gentle slope of refractory on which the charge in the tower is supported.

13 Granulation of liquid ferromanganese into wciter (courtesy Uddeholm Technology, Sweden 2001). of penetrating the surface oxide; all particles are necessarily introduced in their own paper bags of oxide, so that the melt never contacts the introduced particle. This behaviour explains the results of Mohanty and Gruzleski (1995) who found that TiB2 particles added to liquid aluminium did not nucleate grains, but were pushed by dendrites to the grain boundaries. This is the behaviour expected of any particles surrounded by a film of alumina that entraps a layer of air.

It shows the double nature of the bifilm, since by chance, the section happened to be at precisely the level to take away part of the top film, revealing a second, clearly unbonded, film underneath. As we have mentioned, the surface can be entrained simply by contracting. However, if more severe disturbance of the surface is experienced, as typically occurs during the pouring of liquid metals, pockets of air can be accidentally trapped by chance creases and folds at random locations in the double film, since the surface turbulence event is usually chaotic.
