Iron Castings

CIM Bulletin, 1956


IN A DISCUSSION of use of any material of construction in the mining industry, two points of view must be kept in mind - that of the producer or manufacturer of mining and metallurgical equipment, and that of the maintenance and operating staff of the mining plant. In the first case, the choice of material of construction is up to the manufacturer and the user of the equipment has little direct say in the matter.
