Metallurgy is the art or science of separating metals from their ores, making and compounding alloys, and working or heat-treating metals to give them certain desired shapes or properties. Metallurgy has been broken down into three branches—chemical metallurgy, physical metallurgy, and mechanical metallurgy.
AIR is used for cooling some high-alloy steels and some nonferrous metals. Both still air and circulating air are used. For either method the work pieces are placed on racks or other suitable containers so all parts are uniformly exposed. Air is often circulated by electric fans arranged to provide uniform cooling. Compressed air is sometimes used to concentrate the cooling on particular areas. Compressed air used for this purpose must be entirely free of moisture. Any moisture in the air produces rapid quenching wherever it touches the metal and may cause cracking or hard spots.
Compressed air is a irreplaceable energy carrier in the Foundry workshop for transportation and processing of the sand molds and males.
The silica sand is the raw material used to manufacture the molds in foundries workshops due to its easy to recycle as regenerated sand. The sand is transported with the help of compressed air from the unloading stations or large silos until the manufacturing mould’s machines and males.
To take advantage of optimal energy invested in compressed air, the heat recovery was adapted which occur for a long time to the new circunstances. Now, thanks to the high-load of compressors grade, the foundry workshop saves about 20 000 m³ annual of natural gas for heating tap water and heating system.
