Symposium Energy Materials 2017: Energy and Environmental Issues in Materials Manufacturing and Processing
Presentation Title Energy Savings in Aluminium Sand Casting Foundries
Author(s) Hamid Ahmad Mehrabi
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Hamid Ahmad Mehrabi
Abstract Scope Energy savings in foundries can be direct and indirect. Operational material efficiency, process simulation and foundry management are indirect saving methods by saving materials and increase yield. Preheating the metal and loading, melting, treating and refining molten metal and melt holding are sections that energy saved directly by the process control. Based on these concepts, CRIMSON casting process combines direct and indirect saving methods (2 in 1); thus, achieving energy savings in a more efficient way. The CRIMSON (Constrained Rapid Induction Melting Single Shot Up-Casting) method uses a rapid induction furnace to melt just enough metal for a single mould rather than bulk melting used in traditional processing. This helps improve the quality of casting, increase yield, save energy and reduce emission. The estimated energy savings for aluminum sand casting could be of the order of 43 GJ per tonne (about 12MWh / ton).
