Oil and Gas
The company is a specialist in producing exhaust manifolds, including water cooled versions, in prototype, low and medium volume for diesel engines ranging from 50hp to 50,000hp.
Materials specified for these parts are typically ferritic S.G. iron – SI/MO Ductile Iron and NiResist.
Manufacture of a wide range of castings for the compressor industry is a second element of our core business parallel to exhaust manifolds.
Both elements have common casting requirements i.e capability to contain gases and liquids, frequently at high temperature and pressure, and regularly within the same casting. Wall thickness control, casting integrity and material specifications are also common.
Complimentary to manifold capability, the company has over 10 years experience in producing turbocharger compressor castings covering the same engine size range and material.
The advent of ADI (Austempered Ductile Iron) has led to more manufacturers using this material. Crankshafts have been one area of demand in this material.
The foundry has a well established capability to produce most of the ferrous specifications used in day to day operation, and is therefore able to undertake commissions for the supply of a very wide range of casting types and materials from General Engineering.
The UK steel industry and mining would be typical of our existing clients in this sector.
The foundry is often involved in special projects having unusual or even unique requirements.
Typical undertakings have included:
- Various castings for historic machine restoration or re-construction.
- Casting supply to Steam Preservation Groups.
- Decorative Ironwork for Listed Building restoration.
- Local interest projects such as the Greyhounds for Stockton High Street and cast boundary markers for Upper Teesdale.
