USA Stamping Firm Poised to Receive Salt Recovery System

The recent substantial increase in the price of quenching salts has prompted companies around the world to look at ways to reduce this cost. A solution which has been around for a number of years, especially in Europe are systems which will recover virtually all of the salt which accumulates in wash/rinse tanks thus reducing the amount of salt used per year to almost nothing. The system shown in these photos was produced by a German company, ROHDE and it is in the final stages of testing before going to a company in the US who will incorporate it into a brand new mesh belt austempering line. Salt recovery units are just one of a number of technologies being scrutinized these days as solutions to increasing costs and environmental concerns. “The Monty Heat Treat News” is as always interested in hearing about new technologies to improve quality, reduce costs and increase productivity.
