A New Model for Energy-Saving in Cast Irons Production Introduced Technology Contribution
A new model for energy-saving in cast irons production introduced technology contribution has been developed. According to the analysis model, in case of keeping same energy efficiency of device, the higher technological level increases, the easier the R increases; even if keep the same melting and heat treatment devices, significant reduction of production energy consumption would be implemented just depending on the production yield increase. A case study results show that technology measurements which has no direct effect on energy consumption play an important role in energy conservation, where the contribution rates of lost-foam casting and computer technology are 20% and 17%. The technological measurements play an important role in cast irons production which cannot be ignored.
