Having a Say in the Lay of the Land
The land around the church wasn’t very useful — the ground was uneven, making construction projects nearly impossible. Partnering with the congregation community, however, Waupaca Foundry helped make a dream project become reality.
Improved Parking Is A Lifesaver
For Waupaca Foundry Plant 5, the existing parking and access road configuration leave a lot to be desired. So when we set about improving the situation, we were determined to get it right—and include a few bonus improvements for the community along the way.
Winter Thrills Begin with Foundry Sand
At Waupaca Foundry, we believe it’s imperative to continue finding smarter ways to use our natural resources—recycling, repurposing, and reusing materials everywhere we can.
Foundry Sand Reused for Environmental Benefits
Clay may seem like an uninteresting topic, but for many industries having a supply of the proper type of clay can be critical. The landfill industry, among others including the agriculture and general construction industries, have applications which demand low hydraulic conductivity barriers.
Foundry Sand Reclaims the Land, Makes the Grade
Waupaca Foundry has a long history of reusing foundry sand as many times as possible in the production of iron castings. Then, Waupaca Foundry promotes environmentally beneficial strategies to repurpose these sands, as well as slags and sand fines, that can no longer be used in the casting process.
Warm Reception For Heat Recovery Project
Every year the Waupaca Foundry plants across the U.S. melt more than 2.2 million tons of scrap metal. As you can imagine, this intensive energy process gives off an abundance of heat.
Clear Skies with Advanced Baghouse Technology
Creating thousands of castings per day can be a dirty job. Dust, sand and other particles move throughout the foundry air, but thanks to Waupaca Foundry’s air-filtration system and advanced baghouse technology, we keep the air as clean as possible inside the plant and outside in the blue sky above.
