Title: Foundry air quality study

Abstract

Air quality studies of a Midwest foundry describe existing conditions and the recommendations made to improve both airborne contaminants and space heating. Each work area was examined visually to see if ventilation systems were adequate and personnel were quizzed about heating systems and the effectiveness of insulation. A central gas/oil-fired boiler plant was found to be the best way to handle process and space heating needs. Heat recovery possibilities were checked, but the recommendation was to limit present efforts to the energy available from furnace cooling.
