The StrikoMelter®: Fundamental to Achieving EPA CO2 Emission Cap

The StrikoMelter® boasts CO2 emissions that are at least 50% below that of a reverberatory style furnace.

STRIKOMELTER® REVERB
Waste heat recovery used for preheating in the shaft No preheating, large footprints require burners to work harder to melt
Melting occurs in a separate chamber Melts in a massive pool
Burners can be set to operate at a near stoichiometric range:Target 1.01-1.05 High impingement of burner flame on the surface of the metal

EPA CO2 Goal 2030:
Achieve a 30% CO2 emission reduction from 2005

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR THE DIE CASTING INDUSTRY:

Your State will be looking for ways to drastically cut CO2 emission levels.

While each reduction plan will vary from State to State the following items could be implemented:

  • Added incentives / rebates for energy efficient equipment
  • Penalties for high emissions
