Power Generation Castings in Steel, Iron, and High Nickel Alloys

21st century power generation requires 21st century materials knowledge.  This is the industry that drives all others and allows the modern world to function and move forward. We pour the high-alloy steel power generation castings that many other foundries simply will not deal with. Hastelloys, Monel, Inconel, and Duplex Steel are just some of the specialty materials we handle for this technically complex and demanding market.  We can produce steel castings, stainless steel castings, and nickel castings up to 6,000 lbs., and iron castings up to 10,000 lbs. using our induction melting furnaces and no-bake sand molding production process.  Whatever your application, Quaker City Castings has a casting solution for you.

Quaker City Castings has extensive experience producing castings for a variety of power generation applications including steam turbines, gas turbines, generators, auxiliary systems, and many other systems related to producing and transmitting electricity.  This is also a field in which we have been on the cutting edge of adopting 3D printing technology to produce sand molds using additive manufacturing as well as poly-patterns that can be printed in a matter of days rather than weeks or months.  We’ve built in a tremendous amount of flexibility into our process so we can custom tailor a cast solution to meet your needs.

We can provide prototype castings, one-offs, and also low or high volume production runs.  If you need assistance in choosing a material or optimizing a design to produce the best cast outcome, we can help you with our team of experienced engineers.   Our in-house testing and quality assurance programs further ensure that you get the parts you need when you need them.

 

Common Alloys For Power Generation Castings Include:

  • Ductile Iron (D2, D2B, D3, D4, D5)
  • Ni-Resist (Type 1 Ni-Resist, Type 2, Etc.)
  • Stainless Steel (CA15, CN7M)
  • Hastelloy (ASTM A494)
