Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0743114A1] Method of lubricating a cooled, vertically oscillating, tubular, continuous casting mould involves injecting liq. lubricant (pref. oil) through the mould towards the metal product during solidification, the injection being carried out at spaced points at a single mould level located at more than 20 cm. from the lowest level at which solidification may start and the lubricant supply rate is sufficient to cause rising of a fraction of the lubricant along the mould wall up to the level at which solidification effectively starts. Also claimed is a continuous casting mould in which the above method is carried out.
