Pump Body Casting Process Design and Optimization Based on Numerical Simulation

Zhi-Qiang Zhou and Bing-Rong Zhang
Abstract—Aimed at the problems of complex structure and uneven wall thickness of a aluminum pump, two kinds of pouring system for aluminum pump body were designed, being the traditional gravity and low-pressure castings respectively. Based on the simulation results of these two casting processes of the pump body, the location and types of casting defects were analyzed, being helpful to select the most suitable casting process for the pump body. In this paper, the low pressure casting process was applied with suitable parameters based on the simulation results and added water cooling. Finally, the qualified pump body casting has been obtained and put into production.

Index Terms—Low pressure (die) casting, pump body, ProCAST.
