Reactive Alloy Process

Flowserve is one of the few foundries in the United States to specialize in high-quality titanium casting as part of its Reactive Alloy Process.

By utilizing the technological advantages of induction skull melting with specially modified investment molding and rammed refractory processes, Flowserve Dayton Foundry can produce competitively priced, superior titanium castings.
