Understand the use of ductile iron

- Oct 16, 2020-

1. Pressure pipes and accessories

Ball milled iron castings are used as pipes, which are superior to gray cast iron pipes. The reason lies in the combination of the strength and toughness of ductile iron, so that pipes made of this material can withstand high operating pressures.

2. Automotive applications

Ductile iron is used in three main places in automobiles:

(1) Power source-engine component;

(2) Power transmission-gear train, gear and sleeve;

(3) Vehicle suspension, brake and steering device.
