Robert Murillo Pacific Steel Casting Company Facilities Manager March 8 th, 2012 Facilities Management of a Steel Casting Company
Carbon Steel vs Cast Iron Carbon content <2% Steel is an alloy of iron, carbon, nickel, chrome, vanadium, etc… Types: Low, Medium, High, and Ultra-High Strengths Carbon Content >2% Cast Iron is basically carbon, iron, silicon. Types: Gray, White, Malleable, and Ductile.
Pacific Steel Casting In a Nut Shell Plant 1 opened in 1934. Plant 2 opened in 1975. Plant 3 opened in 1982. Each plant equipped with state of the art environmental controls. 3 Carbon filtration systems to remove VOC from process. Facility has the ability to demand 9+ Mega Watts during steel production. Recycles over 2,000+ tons of scrap metal a month. Recycles all process materials either internally or through outside vendors. Largest industries serviced are Oil Tool and Industrial Trucking. Combined plant production capacity of 2000+ tons/month.
3 Production Facilities Sand Molding Types: Green Sand Shell Air-Set
