Large ingots are mainly used for production of supper thickness plates. With the increasing of ingot mass, the porosity is so deep on the upper of ingot that the metal yield is reduced, and the organization density is relatively poor and segregation is serious. So the large-rectangular ingot quality becomes the bottleneck to play heavy plate mill capacity. Aim at the problem, the equipment for casting large ingot with intensive water cooling was used to produce a kind of large rectangular ingot with 60 t successfully. The ingot was rolled into 220 mm thick steel plate. Although the composition is in the range of Q345B, the performance indexes met the stand of super thickness Q345E-Z35 plate, and the yield strength was 348 to 373 MPa, the tensile strength was 562 MPa to 588 MPa, percentage elongation was 17% to 28.5%, the transverse impact energy was 56.57 to 71.65 J and the longitudinal impact energy was 40.76 to 88.80 J at -40 ℃, the average percentage reduction in area was 63.04% at 1/2 thickness and 57.93% at 1/4 thickness. The total inclusions grade was not exceed 2.0, the grain fineness was 8 to 9. The result shows that the technology for production large rectangular ingot with intensive water cooling can provide the stocks for super thickness plates.
