Industrial Filtration for the Foundry Industry
The foundry industry uses induction and electric arc furnaces to melt the metal prior to casting. The processes in the foundry industry include melting, pouring, sand shakeout, sand reclamation and grinding. Each process is complex, generates dust and is under the scrutiny of the EPA, OSHA and other regulatory agencies. The particulate dust consists of the oxides of the metals, minerals from the additives, as well as the volatile metals.
National Filter Media has a variety of baghouse filters to capture the dust generated in the foundry industry.
