KSB has extended its steel foundry in Vambori, India.

By adding two new natural gas-fired furnaces, KSB has increased steel castings output from 300 tons to 1200 tons per year.

The KSB Vambori foundry specialises in difficult to cast steels and stainless steels, for example duplex and chrome steels, or ASTM grades such as CF8M, CF3M or CN7M.
 
The new environmentally friendly KSB foundry has a flue gas collector and dust extraction systems to control air pollution and its own water treatment plant. Up to 80% of the sand used for moulds and cores is reclaimed. The foundry has three ovens: one for drying moulds, one for drying cores and another for scrap metal heating.
 
KSB says that demand for high-quality steel castings within the global group is continuously increasing.
