Industrial Heat Treatment of Ammunition Cases
Process Improvement of Industrial Heat Treatment of Ammunition Cases — The focus of the project is to reduce wastewater and process steps in the manufacture of ammunition cases. The manufacturing process includes multiple stamping and pressing, washing and heating steps, all of which impact the facility's overall water usage. The project team analyzed each of these steps to reduce the number of overall process stages and to find ways to minimize water usage and wastewater generation.
