Heat recuperators

Cast recuperator elements are produced using a special pouring method, based on the precision shell-molding process or by using the investment casting process. Single precision cast finned elements are produced for diameters from 76 mm. to 320 mm. For diameters larger than 320 mm., a fabricated construction can be supplied.

Along with the single cast elements, entire recuperators, fully assembled and complete with burner parts can be supplied.

Following are the main applications for these products:

  • Recuperators for radiant tubes
  • Recuperators for recuperative burners
  • Stack recuperators for bell furnaces

Cast conveyors belts

Cast link conveyor belts are produced in a range of alloys to withstand working temperatures up to 1100°C (2000°F)

All kinds of cast conveyor elements are produced using a special pouring method based on the precision shell molding process or on the investment cast process.
The conveyor belts can be delivered complete with support rollers, drive/return rollers and lower support system.
If required, the correct running of the assembled cast link belts can be tested on a stand at the foundry prior to shipment.

The standard link pitches are:
• 3″ (76 mm.)
• 4″ (102 mm.)
• 5″ (127 mm.)
• 3/8″ (157 mm.)
