Upstate Refractory Services was selected to design, fabricate and install a new system for an area foundry to preheat their foundry ladles in a controlled and safe manner. The system consists of one single station unit for the larger ladles, and one four station unit for their smaller ladles. The previous system consisted of inspirated gas burners that had no temperature control, no insulation to retain the heat, and high noise levels when in operation. The new system has been on site for a few months and has been performing as expected. The benefits realized include a much lower noise level (less than 70db), the ability to control the heat up rate for drying out new linings,significant fuel savings, safe operation, and reliable temperature measurement to insure that the ladle temperature is correct before use in production.
