Castings are steels with more than 2% Carbon, made by casting. They are available as malleable iron castings, ductile iron castings, gray iron castings, Ingot iron and steel castings etc. The have low saturation induction. They contain several impurities – so their magnetic properties is poor and permeability is low. Cast Iron is used in large components that require inexpensive magnetic material. They produce large core loss at line frequencies. So they are used in near DC applications.
MagWeb’s Castings Folder has 52 excel files listing magnetic properties of these materials. These include cast steel, gray cast iron, wrought iron, malleable iron, ductile iron etc. For a full list of commercial names of all these materials, please click on List of Materials – H. Castings.
Version 5 also contains a DIGEST which lists all these materials and their discrete properties in a single excel file.
By downloading this Folder you will have 52 files on magnetic properties of castings produced world wide at your finger tips!
Please review the Handbook for more technical information on these materials.
