Partition brackets are easily found in toilets. These brackets are usually designed in a U or F shape; U brackets are limited to pilasters and connect the pilasters to the panels in a T shape.
However, F-brackets are limited to the end panel of the back wall. Besides, two other brackets are also present to support the center console panels on the back wall. All these partition brackets come with security screws to make them stronger.
The strength of these brackets is because they are made of cast stainless steel. This method offers excellent stability and lasts longer than cast aluminum.
Material: 304 Stainless Steel
Of all the cast alloys, 304 stainless steel is the most popular. It belongs to the austenitic stainless steel family, which means that this material also contains nickel and chromium.
304 stainless steel is popular because of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. It is also known as 18/8 steel. This combination is surprisingly well balanced and gives the material several desirable qualities. Below are some positive attributes of 304 stainless steel:
- Better corrosion resistance and offers aesthetic appeal.
- Easy maintenance and cleaning.
- Compared to other types of stainless steel, it is easier to weld.
- It is more heat resistant.
- Attractive and elegant appearance
Stainless Steel Investment Casting for Partition Brackets
Cast stainless steel partition brackets are produced by an investment casting process of stainless steel. The investment casting technique includes stainless steel, which is one of the most versatile materials, especially when it comes to complex precision stainless steel parts.
The primary use of stainless steel casting is the production of components such as automotive parts, marine items, bathroom items, etc. High strength, good corrosion resistance, and elegant appearance are the characteristics that make stainless steel casting more prevalent in these industries.
The process of stainless steel investment casting is also known as stainless steel lost wax casting or stainless steel precision casting. The procedure involves forming a ceramic mold from a wax pattern that is produced in the same shape as the partition brackets to be cast.
To coat this model, a refractory ceramic is used. Once the ceramic material has hardened, it is turned over, and the wax melts and flows out. The hardened ceramic shells become disposable investment molds. Molten stainless steel is poured into the mold and allowed to cool. The solidified castings are then removed from the pouring hole.
Advantages of Stainless Steel Investment Casting Include:
- In comparison to other metal forming methods, investment cast stainless steel partition brackets provide minor details and superior surface finishes.
- Thin-walled stainless steel partition brackets with complex shapes can also be cast. Investment casting does not require a draft, as does sand casting.
- It can produce net-shape partition brackets, providing the customer with significant savings in materials, labor, and machining.
- Valve parts, medical equipment components, golf club heads, and many other complex stainless steel components can be produced with investment casting.
