Paper Title:
Cost Savings in the Cast House through Optimizing Furnace Operation, Staff Training and Associated Variables
  Abstract

While it is generally acknowledged in our industry that people are the most important asset, the importance of technical training for furnace operators is often overlooked. The primary focus for training is often on the down stream process where the final product is either being cast or fabricated. The furnace operators have a key role since they have direct influence on factors that dramatically govern a range of costs factors which include: productivity; melt loss; metal content in the dross; energy usage, and metal cleanliness.
