Casting Found Just in Time

While driving to the Birmingham airport a day after touring a ductile iron pipe casting plant in Alabama, one of our editors spotted this flatbed truck rolling down the highway.

Yep, those are the company’s very products on delivery to a customer. (And yep, our editor risked life and limb to snap this photo while driving.)

While this isn’t your typical found casting, this is about as close to “in the field” as you will find these centrifugally cast wonders. Once they find their way to the intended customer and are pulled off this truck, they’ll be buried in the ground to play an integral role in the water transport system for at least the next 50 years.
