An extra pair of socks won't help - Reducing electricity and
gas costs in foundries with innovative coatings and riser
Switch off the light, take a cold shower,
put on an extra sweater. These and other tips are currently being
given to consumers to save on energy costs. The difficulty of
rising energy prices for consumers is extremely critical for
energy-intensive industries, such as the foundry industry.
Unfortunately, simply putting on an extra pair of socks is not an
option in the foundry. Here, other solutions are needed.
On one hand: Most gas is needed in the coating process. To save
gas, the furnace temperature can be optimized, the waste heat of
the melting furnace can be used in combination with fast-drying
SOLITEC coating, or the process step can be eliminated with VEINO
On the other hand: The melting furnace is the biggest power
user. If several tons of metal are liquefied per month, even a few
kilograms less per molding box allow significant savings in
electricity costs. With the ASK mini riser technology, the use of
liquid metal can be reduced, thus optimizing energy consumption.
Further, metal material use can be reduced with tubular UDICELL
filters with housings.
These are just a few ways in which foundries can save energy
costs with innovative chemicals and materials. In our webinar, our
experts Dr. Reinhard Stötzel and Marcus Friederici explain in
detail at which process steps gas and electricity can be saved.
