The pouring process of Omaha Steel further reflects our commitment to providing you the purest quality alloy for your castings. You can depend on Omaha Steel to research and fully understand your specifications before the pour, and design a pouring process that meets your demands. Our furnaces provide precise temperature control at the point of tapping, as well as at every stage throughout the pouring process. Such precise temperature control over the entire process results in the highest-quality castings.
Omaha Steel has the metallurgical expertise and know-how for successfully pouring a wide spectrum of alloys. We clearly understand the reactivity and the key essentials necessary to pour everything from the most basic to the most highly engineered and sophisticated alloys. Omaha Steel provides expert metallurgical knowledge to assist you in creating and meeting your internally designed alloy specifications. And we ensure that the alloy we pour for you meets your every demand.
The pouring process affects important physico-mechanical properties of steel. Both the quantity and quality of usable casts depend on accuracy and proper execution during pouring. Omaha Steel’s pouring works in concert with the melting process through our engineered gating system, delivering the highest-quality metal to the mold. Omaha Steel uses the highest-quality MGO ladle board systems available, providing the most consistent temperature control with the least alloy reactivity within our refractory system.
The results of the exceptionally clean metal from our melting process, in conjunction with the refractory system, produces small reoxidation products also known as slag. Omaha Steel’s commitment to quality shows through our highly trained pouring teams that remove any and all slag prior and throughout the pouring operation. Every one of our pours produces the cleanest of castings.
You can depend on Omaha Steel for a well-designed, precisely controlled pour that yields the highest-quality castings.
