Custom Cast Iron Manifold for the Marine Industry

Custom Cast Iron Manifold for the Marine Industry

Warsaw Foundry Company is a leader in providing the highest quality castings to a variety of industries. Our work with the marine industry is long standing and we are qualified to produce the complicated castings that this industry requires. Designed to be used as part of a boat's exhaust system, this marine manifold was cast using automotive gray cast iron per SAE G3000 and green sand molds. We used our Hunter 20-C, 20" X 24" flask automated molding machine, U-180 shell core, and core assembly in the manufacturing process. Quality controls included final inspection, pressure testing at 40 psi, visual inspection, and Brinell hardness testing. Each manifold weighed 42.24 lbs and was cast to tolerances of ±.030". This production run consisted of 1,000 pieces and was completed in 5 weeks.

Working with Warsaw Foundry brings together quality castings and exceptional customer service. Count on us to meet all your casting needs. The details of this cast iron manifold project are outlined in the table below. Please contact us today with any additional inquiries.
