CRESCENT has been in the fore front in protecting environment from pollution. It is the first foundry to have ISO 14001:2004.
CRESCENT uses Green Sand for molding which suggests that sand is bonded with water and there is no use of chemicals in the sand. 98% of sand has been recycled. Sand is cleaned using various stages of magnetic separator. First bigger particles are removed using magnetic drum in a conveyor belt. There after finer particles are separated by magnetic gravity separation. We recycle cast iron and steel scrap in our furnaces. Boring and fines generated during the casting and machining processes are briquetted in-house and are re melted. 98% of our sand is recycled as well.
To prevent IRON FINES from getting into soil by land filling contractors, CRESCENT has installed Briquetting Machine. This machine does compaction of the iron fines into small cylindrical pieces. These pieces are then charged into cupola for re-melting. In this way iron fines are prevented from getting into soil.
