The invention relates to ferrous metallurgy, in particular to the production of master alloys for melting ingot heat-resistant alloy based on titanium.

It is known that nowadays almost all industries, including aerospace, parts and components are operated at high loads and elevated temperatures, so they are often made of titanium alloys. Because titanium alloys generally have complex multi-component chemical composition, we must use good quality ligature. In the smelting of many titanium alloys are used one, and sometimes several ligatures that add to the original in at the beginning of melting or injected directly into the melt liquid titanium, to regulate basic chemical composition of titanium alloy. As is well known in the art, the ligature is a mixture of alloying elements designed to adjust the percentage of the required components in the melt.

Because the chemical composition of the titanium alloy known in advance, it is quite easy to determine the number of ligatures must be added to achieve the desired chemical composition of the melt. However, you should consider whether all the amount of added�Noah ligatures will be completely and evenly distributed in the melt. Therefore one of the main objectives is the development of ligatures, which are easy to melt and evenly distributed in the molten metal.

In the process of doping we have several tasks that need to be addressed.

For example, being in specified chemical composition is complicated by the waste/evaporation of alloying elements in the smelting process. To ensure a uniform distribution of alloying elements is also hindered by the segregation of these elements. Enter refractory elements in the melt is complicated by the fact that they are digested only by means of dissolving, tighten the step and leads to deterioration of material properties.

Known to double and triple ligatures, for example: Al-V, Al-Sn, Al-Mo-Ti, Al-Cr-Mo, which you can use to smelt almost any titanium alloys ("Melting and casting of titanium alloys" Andreev A. L., N. Anoshkin.F. and others. - M.: metallurgy, 1994, p. 127, PL.20 /1/).

In the smelting of titanium alloys it is necessary to ensure sufficiently accurate chemical composition, therefore, the use of double or triple ligatures may lead to excess of the required contents of chemical elements, in particular of aluminum, because of its high content in ligatures.

Known the master alloys for titanium alloys, comprising the following components, �AC.%: molybdenum - 23,99; vanadium - 25,44; aluminium - 49,98; iron - 0,19; silicon - 0,22; carbon - 0,06; oxygen - 0,07; hydrogen - 0,0017; nitrogen - 0,012 (US 3387971, C22C 21/00, 11.06.1968, /2/).

The disadvantage of this ligature is the need for additional introduction of pure refractory metals in the melt, under conditions of vacuum-arc melting quite difficult and can lead to neprotivlenie separate pieces of constituents that contribute to the appearance of such defects as segregation in chemical composition.

One of the most common problems in metallurgy in the smelting of titanium alloys containing tungsten, is its non-uniform distribution due to the high density over the cross section and length of the ingot or billet parts.

Known (RU 2470084 C1, C22C 35/00, 20.12.2012, /3/) ligature for melting heat-resistant titanium alloy containing tungsten 48,0-52,0, titanium 10,0-20,0, hafnium 0,08-0,1, aluminum else. This ligature provides improved strength and heat-resistant properties due to the uniform distribution of tungsten and other alloying elements in the cross section and length of the ingot.

The disadvantage is that the ligature does not provide a sufficient isotropy properties of the alloy and a uniform distribution of alloying elements in it.

And this is necessary when the existing trends in the world - increasing requirements for products and �of Osmania fundamentally new alloys and alloys with improved strength, heat-resistant characteristics.

Task to be solved by the present invention is directed, is the development and acquisition of new ligatures for melting heat-resistant titanium alloys with improved characteristics, with a uniform content of alloying elements in the cross section and length of the ingots (billets) that will avoid segregation in chemical composition.

The technical result of the invention is that the proposed ligature provides uniform distribution of tungsten and other alloying elements in the cross section and length of the ingot, the isotropy properties. This improves the strength and heat-resistant characteristics that directly affect the function of the components of titanium alloy. Also the technical result is the reduction of evaporation/melting loss of the alloying element in smelting process.

On the achievement of specified technical result is influenced by the following essential features.

Ligature for melting ingot titanium alloy based on titanium containing tungsten, aluminum, titanium, characterized in that it contains components in the following ratio, wt. %: tungsten 28-32; aluminium - 28-32; titanium - the rest.

As a result of the development of this ligature is found that the presence of the ligature WOL�frame in this percentage allows you to completely and evenly dissolved in the alloy, that improves the heat resistance of the alloy due to the formation of the structure of dense oxide compounds of tungsten, impairing the permeability of oxygen and hydrogen to the phase boundary at high temperatures and the formation in the surface layer doped solid solutions of titanium-tungsten.

The aluminum content in the ligature in this percentage has a negative impact on the decrease of the melting temperature of the ligature, but it is also important to increase thermal stability of the alloy.

The content of titanium in the ligature in this percentage lowers the melting point of the ligature, forms an intermetallic compound with aluminum, which protects against evaporation and fumes, gives the workability of the alloy (i.e., is a vital link for aluminum and tungsten).

The manufacture of the ligature is carried out in a vacuum arc furnace with a nonconsumable tungsten electrode, before the melting of the charge is placed in a copper water-cooled mold, the furnace is closed and begin pumping out of the oven to a residual pressure of 0.01÷0.05 mm Hg.St.), upon reaching the degree of vacuum in the working space of the furnace SIC argon to a pressure equal to the atmospheric value, then the first phase alloy titanium and aluminum in a proportion that corresponds to the content of these elements in the ligature, to the state, which should lead to a complete dissolution satoumi materials to form a single ingot, at the bottom of the copper mould is placed in the aluminum, and titanium, which have a higher melting temperature, the magnitude of the arc current between the charge and the electrode was 750÷1000 a, While the melting time was 3÷6 minutes, the temperature of the melt 30÷50°C above the liquidus temperature of the alloy Ti-Al, then to the ingot of Ti-Al add the desired amount of tungsten that is placed over an ingot of Ti-Al alloy, and for averaging the chemical composition of the ingot it is removed from the mold, inverted and subjected to re-melting, melt temperature is 1750÷1850°C.

In the embodiment, the manufacture of master alloys for casting refractory titanium alloy, which consists of tungsten, aluminum, titanium, characterized in that it contains these components in the following ratio, wt %: tungsten 28.8; aluminium - 29.1; titanium - the rest. In this case the receipt is carried out in a vacuum arc furnace with a nonconsumable tungsten electrode, before the melting of the charge is placed in a copper water-cooled mold, the furnace is closed and begin pumping out of the oven to a residual pressure of 0.03 mm Hg.St.), upon reaching the degree of vacuum in the working space of the furnace SIC argon to a pressure equal to the atmospheric value, then the first phase alloy titanium and aluminum in a proportion that corresponds to the�corresponds to the content of these elements in the alloy, to the state, which should lead to a complete dissolution satoumi materials to form a single ingot, while the bottom copper crucible placed aluminum, and titanium, which have a higher melting temperature, the magnitude of the arc current between the charge and the electrode 750 a, While the melting time was 4 minutes, the temperature of the melt at 50°C above the liquidus temperature of the alloy Ti-Al, then to the ingot of Ti-Al add the desired amount of tungsten that is placed over an ingot of Ti-Al alloy, and for averaging the chemical composition of the ingot it is removed from the mold, inverted and subjected to re-melting, melt temperature is 1800±10°C.

Thus, the present invention provides a uniform distribution of tungsten and other alloying elements in the cross section and length of the ingot, the isotropy properties. This improves the strength and heat-resistant characteristics that directly affect the function of the components of titanium alloy. Also the technical result is the reduction of evaporation/melting loss of the alloying element in smelting process.
