Abstract The most highly polluting foundry operations are: melting, pouring, precooling of the mould, removal from the mould and knockout, cooling of castings, fettling, sand preparation. Details are given of ventilation systems using local exhaust at the source, and of air filter systems, dust collectors (wet, Bahco multicyclones) and heat exchangers that can be used in foundries.
