Many iron foundries do not take into account the solidification characteristics of iron when designing feeding systems; feeders for iron castings are designed essentially as feeders for steel castings, resulting in defects in production castings.  Often the suggested remedies for these defects worsen the situation, due to the same lack of understanding. The design methods are generally quite easy to implement and require only a minimal investment of time. Most of these problems could ...
