Abstract : The cause for the development of a constant current component during electroslag casting of ingots in water-cooled casting molds is discussed. This phenomenon pertains also to the manufacture of fluxes in flux smelting singlephase electric furnaces with graphite electrodes. A method is introduced for the elimination of this component and possible fields of its application during electroslag smelting are described. (Author)
