Centrifugal casting plays a key role in manufacturing processes. In this process, the flow of the molten metal in particular, plays a significant role in defining the quality of final cast tube. The current study is an experimental work that focuses on the effect of fluid flow speeds on the quality of final cast product. The study was conducted using the vertical centrifugal casting with tin as the primary raw material. It is observed from the study that for the given manufacturing conditions, a speed 1050 rpm produced the sound castings. The micrographic studies of these cast products revealed an excellent grain structures. The improvement in the material hardness was also observed.
Key words: Vertical centrifugal casting / optimum speed / tin / hardness / grain structure
