Alan Holtz, Spuncast VP, presents Paper on Cost Benefits of Centrifugally Cast 316L SS in CEBAF

On November 30, 2011, Alan Holtz, Vice President-Sales & Engineering at Spuncast, Inc., presented a paper at the Stainless Steel World Conference & Expo in Maastricht, Netherlands. The paper is the culmination of a joint project between Spuncast and Jefferson National Laboratory (JLAB) in Newport News, VA.

In 2007, JLAB came to Spuncast with an inquiry for finish machined rings made of 316L Stainless Steel. The application was severe, in that the part would be used at 2ºK (-456ºF), operates in a vacuum of 10-7 torr and contain liquid Helium with no leakage. The actual function of the parts are end-heads of the helium vessels in the linear accelerator section of the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator (CEBAF) at JLAB. The stainless steel parts successfully replaced titanium metal spinnings at a significant cost savings.
