Taking Clean Steel Seriously, Foundries Adopt Vacuum Technology

Higher-grade steels require secondary treatment, often carried out under vacuum, and changes in those process technologies are proving attractive to metalcasting operations. Considering quality and safety Expanding product portfolio No process steam

With rising expectations from automakers and commercial vehicle manufacturers, and increasingly for oil-exploration and mechanical engineering applications, steel foundries are getting serious about their clean-steelmaking technologies. One obvious effect is a new class of vacuum treatment plants scaled to metalcasting operations.

Higher-grade steels require secondary treatment, often carried out under vacuum, and while such plants are common in primary steelmaking and stainle
