SF&E Pours largest Nuclear Impeller in its History

STAINLESS FOUNDRY & ENGINEERING, INC. poured the largest impeller in the history of its company. Utilizing AOD ingot, they melted and cast 6,000 pounds of CA6NM martensitic stainless steel.

 

The reputation of Stainless Foundry & Engineering (SF&E) was built on being an industry leader in manufacturing all styles of impellers. Historically the Pump & Valve industry has had a great need for high quality Impellers, relying on SF&E for high spec work like the one shared below.

SF&E specializes in:

  • Open Impellers
  • Multi Staged Impellers
  • Double Suction Impellers
  • Closed impellers

SF&E works to exacting industry standards. Recently, a customer was in dire need of a series of nuclear impellers commanding the foundry's biggest challenge yet. Not only that, but this all unfolded during the global COVID-19 pandemic and local Stay at Home order.


SUCCESSFUL REMOTE FOLLOW-THROUGH WITH CLIENTS
This customer was originally scheduled to be on site for the majority of the process. The Stay at Home order may have prevented this from happening, but it did not delay the push to deliver this project on an expedited schedule. Positive and proactive measures were taken to communicate with the customer. Conference calls about the project's status took place every Tuesday and Thursday, on top of sharing various e-mails and photos detailing the progress on these first article castings.

CUTTING EDGE LEAD TIMES AT 11 WEEKS
Even through extenuating circumstances, the entire process was a success. SF&E cast, machined, and performed various non-destructive tests, including 120 radiographic exposures, on these large class 1 nuclear impellers to fulfill an 11 week lead time while maintaining a collaborative relationship with the customer.

HERE FOR YOU
This is just one example of SF&E's commitment to customers, and their perseverance through the COVID-19 pandemic. SF&E is committed to its customers and remains open to support other essential operations.

Stainless Foundry & Engineering, Inc. is here for you. No matter the challenge, SF&E will help find a solution.
