Meehanite research & development

Some of its contributions to the elevation of cast iron to a reliable engineering material


  • Formulating inoculating materials
  • Wedge testing
  • Other metallurgical controls leading to a range of Meehanite irons
  • Meehanite Statistical Process Control
  • Equiblast cupola
  • Secondary air cupola
  • Standardised gating and feeding
  • Evolution of wear and corrosion resistant irons
  • Three step nodularising process enabling nodular iron to be manufactured from cupola melted base iron
  • Revision to two stage process
  • Injector nodularising process
  • Pneumatic process for desulphurisation
  • Ultrasonic determination of nodularisation and mechanical properties
  • Osmose process for nodularisation
  • Trigger process to minimise magnesium fade
  • In-the-mould nodularising process - Inmold Process
  • First generation chamber nodularising process - Flotret
  • Second generation chamber process - Imconod
