Recyclable Metallic Abrasives:
The Economical Way to Protect the Environment
Stricter environmental laws make it prohibitive to use one-use abrasives such as coal slag or sand. In 1984, amendments to RCRA established a national policy, making waste minimization the preferred hazardous waste management practice. Recyclable metallic abrasives such as Metgrain® and Metgrit® will reduce waste as well as provide incredible cost savings since the abrasives can possibly be reused thousands of times. Metgain® and Metgrit® were specially designed for increased performance in air blasting and foundry applications. The shape and chemistry allow for faster cleaning and unequalled performance.
Foundry Sand Additives: Can these Additives Reduce Your Emissions?
Foundries are being subjected to more intense air pollution regulations. Millions of dollars are spent annually to reduce these emissions via engineering controls. Emissions are created when resin burns in the sand. Foundries can reduce these emissions by utilizing SphereOX®. Because of its unique chemistry and spherical shape SphereOX® has a negative loss on ignition (LOI). This “gain” on ignition, along with the lower resin levels needed with SphereOX®, can reduce emissions up to 40%. Customers benefit with lower emissions, and also as important, SphereOX® is by far the best additive for preventing veining, gas, and carbon defects, as well as providing incredible chill to reduce shrink.
