Welcome to Faircast
Metalcasting Excellence for Over 100 Years
Grey (also referred as, “gray.”) cast iron is the oldest type of cast iron being used today. It’s a type of iron with carbon greater than 2% and a graphitic microstructure which reveals the color we call grey. These castings are manufactured by foundries that manipulate their mold designs to cover a large range of industries. Our most common industries served are Agriculture, Auto Mobile Parts, Valves & Piping, Construction, Oil & Gas, and so much more.
General Dimensional Tolerances
We produce cored and non-cored castings using the green sand process. Casting sizes range from 1-100+ pounds. We also offer local connections of value added services such as machining and painting, and can do pattern construction and repair. By offering multiple types of iron, along with a variety of core machines and molding equipment, we can adapt to almost any casting need!
Our Waterwalled Cupola is a continuous melting shaft furnace which has by its inherent design considerable advantages over batch type melters such as electric furnaces or rotary furnaces. A cupola can accept a wide range of raw materials including oily, wet and contaminated scrap. These materials are unsuitable for electric furnaces for safety reasons and because of the contamination their use is also often limited for metallurgical reasons. In cupola melting there is a degree of refining as the metal forms droplets during melting before collecting in the well.
