Cast Iron Work / Large Cast Iron Pour
Large Cast Iron Pour - Cast Iron Work - Wrought Artworks - Iron work Australia

A crew of eight people was required for this complicated pour, here we were casting  a reproduction gate for the Centennial Park Reservoir.

It required pouring from four ladles simultaneously to fill the large complicated mould simultaniously. Note the heavy weights placed on top of the mould to prevent the mould seperating under hydrostatic pressure from the molten metal inside.

The pour was three times larger than any previous using the maximum capacity of two furnaces. This project won Wrought Artworks a commendation in the Energy Australia National Trust Heritage Awards.

A documentary titled 'Baking a Gate' recording the process, by Julia Boros was screened on the ABC.
