Benz and the Foundry Industry

The Foundry industry produces castings by filling molds with molten alloys. Metal is melted, poured into a mold, then allowing it to solidify. Foundries don’t just produce metal products for engine, railroad, or pipe components. They also form components for machines that are required to make many of the essential consumer products we depend on. 90 percent of all manufactured goods rely on these metal castings.

The high temperatures produced by the molten metal makes for a dangerous work place and the proper fire resistant hydraulic fluids must be used to ensure the safest work conditions.

Benz has proven products that address the most important needs for any foundry. The Factory Mutual approved ULTRA GUARD 552 has a multitude of advantages that will keep production moving efficiently and safely.
