Foundry Hot Toppings

Hot toppings can assure total feeding of a casting and reduce shrink defects by protecting your melt from chilling. Insulating and exothermic toppings are available providing consistency on each and every pour. We offer formulation ranging from mildly to highly exothermic. Freedom Foundry Products are premium products that are cost-effective and have been used by foundries all around the country to create value for a fraction of the price of competing products.

Exothermic Hot Topping

Freedom Foundry exothermic hot toppings prevent costly shrink defects, reduce smoke and offensive odor, and provide superior insulating and exothermic blanket covering that prevents heat loss.

Insulating Compounds

Insulating compounds aid in riser efficiency and maximization and are engineered to be highly insulating.

Improve Alloy Recovery

Improve the alloy recovery in your metalcasting applications with the use of Mag Guard. Mag Guard is a steel alloy cover designed for high density and low permeability to delay reaction of the alloy, improving manganese recovery. The unique shape and composition of Mag Guard allows for full and superior coverage of your alloys, providing quality protection. Improved recovery and protection reduces cost and time spent in your melt department.

Key Highlights:

  • Clean
  • Oil Free
  • Rust Free
  • Reduce Temperature Loss
  • Easy Handling

Size Specifications:

  • 4 mesh x 14 mesh

High Pressure Water Deburring

High Pressure Water Deburring Systems such as the one above have been manufactured in the U.S. since 1986 gradually evolving into one of the most robust and successful system on the market today. Machines in the field trange from 6″ X 6″ X 6″ envelope size to 24″ X 30″ X 50″ envelope size deburring various aluminum and ferrous metal parts. Lab testing is done in a machine that can generate 8000 to 10000 PSI in order to test sample parts before a quote is provided. This allows for a process to be developed and suited to your particular parts.

  • Fully automated systems that are ideal for a multitude of industries including die casting, foundry work, automotive remanufacturing, and many other speciality applications where precision is needed
  • Fixtures, tooling, and jigs can be fabricated for just about any application
  • Systems are built in an ISO 9001 and QS 9001 TE Supplement facilty

Pipe Blaster

Midvale Industries offers fully automated Pipe Blasting Equipment for the removal of rust, mill scale, and to create a surface profile for proper coating adhesion.

These systems include skew roll blast systems that are designed to clean pipe or other long and round material. The skew roll conveyor not only keeps round parts in place but rotates them 360 degrees while conveying them through the blast chamber.

A range of system sizes are offered cleaning up to 42” of pipe at variable rates.

For processing, parts are loaded onto a powered turntable which rotates within the blast envelope to provide 360° exposure to the blast stream. Models with an oscillating blast wheel, such as our 36″ Power Table, enhance blast coverage. Features like the swing door expedite loading and unloading by enabling the operator to sway the system’s door-mounted turntable in and out of the blast enclosure.

Shot Blasting Equipment

Midvale Industries and Gibson Abrasive Equipment work with end users to determine which system meets their needs. This is based on many factors, including cleaning requirements, profile requirements, and production requirements.
