  • Ductile iron treatment and pouring up to 600 lbs. per ladle
  • Gray iron pouring up to 800 lbs. per ladle

Metallurgy

  • Tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation measurement on site to ASTM A48, A536, and E8 standards
  • Chemical analysis, metallographic and microstructure analysis by third party labs
  • Thermal analysis of every heat to determine Total Carbon and Silicon

Molding

  • Phenolic Urethane No Bake (PUNB) cope and drag molding. 600 lb./min. continuous mixer. Mechanized roll over and draw.
  • Manual jolt-squeeze green sand molding. Typical flasks 12×20, 14×14, 14×18, 14×19 (Hunter HMP10)
