1. Necessary power for the setting of the temperature of the mould
and the plates in 45 min.

 

    

F = 3711 W

Where :

M      = mass of the mould and the plates in kg
       = volume in dm3 x density
       = [(1,5 x 2,5 x 1,5) + 2 x (2,5 x 4 x 0,5)] x 7,87
       = 122,9 kg

Cp     = specific heat of steel
         = 0,11 kcal/kg.K

DT     = rise in temperature
         = 200 – 20 = 180C

0,86   = coefficient of conversion kcal/h in Watt

ts       = time of starting-up = 0,75 heure
