To allow for the welding of castings they need to be heated from the prevailing ambient temperature to a temperature of 150°C to 400°C, depending on the alloy. In the past this was carried out by natural gas burners in an open “pre-heating space”.
The environmental impact results from the noticeably reduced radiation losses, as the energy is precisely used for the castings. Based on the potential analysis it can be deducted that the annual energy consumption may be reduced by 711.28 MWh thanks to the actions mentioned above. This means that every year some 137 tons of climate-relevant CO2 emissions can be avoided.
