Conserving Heat

The foundry uses virtually no dedicated heating system. Heat generated during the melting process is utilized to heat the rest of the foundry during cooler months. Radiant heat from an adjacent heat treat furnace is used to keep the hot water quench tank in our heat treat process at an operating temperature of 170° F. Moreover, energy consuming operations such as furnaces, are controlled by programmed timers thereby limiting unnecessary, and wasteful demand on both natural gas and electricity.
