Abstract This paper will present the results obtained during a demonstration project at Canadian Steel Foundry (CSF) in Montreal, where a conventional car bottom gas furnace was retrofitted with a pulse firing system. CSF is involved in melting and casting of metals followed by appropriate heat treament of the parts.The main objective of the demonstration project is to measure energy savings resulting from the following modifications brought to the heat treating furnace: - reconstruction of the furnace using ceramic fiber insulation. - reduction of the number of chimneys (from 10 to 2) and use of automatic flue dampers. - installation of a pulse firing system. The other objectives were to assess the product quality and productivity increase.We will first describe the characteristics of high temperature processes and how pulse firing systems are adapted to this application. Then we will present results and after the modifications. break down the energy fibers,automatic dampers and results will be discussed.
