Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0220194A1] A method for cooling a cast product in the essentially vertical continuous casting of metals, taking place in an upward direction, in particular in the continuous casting of wires, rods and tubes of non-ferrous metals, in which method the casting nozzle and primary cooler are at least partially inserted in the melt inside the furnace and the metal is cast through them, whereby the product to be cast is first cooled inside the casting nozzle as the primary cooling. In addition to primary cooling, the product to be cast (3, 3') is cooled outside the furnace (1) walls at least in one another cooling stage by a jet (6) of cooling agent directed onto the surface of the product to be cast, in such a way that the passage of cooling agent into the melt within the furnace is prevented.
