Class Code: 3081

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 3081 is applied to foundries engaged in the manufacture of cast iron or malleable iron for outside customers. The classification includes wood or metal pattern making, core and mold making, the melting of pig iron and certain percentages of cast iron scrap in furnaces and the pouring of the molten metal into molds to produce either gray or white iron. Some foundries may put white iron castings through an annealing process in an air furnace which melts the charge. This melted metal is cast to produce malleable iron. Cooled gray, white or malleable castings generally receive some machining to remove burrs or imperfections. The finished castings are then inspected, packed and shipped. Code 3081 is also applied to soil pipe foundries using the pit method wherein stationary molds or flasks are used to cast the pipe.

Code 3081 is assigned to insureds engaged in the manufacture of plumbers’ enameled ironware such as bathtubs, washbasins and commodes. This work contemplates extensive foundry operations, i.e., wood or metal pattern making, core and mold making, the melting of pig or scrap iron in furnaces and the pouring of the molten metal into molds. The cooled castings are then cleaned and ground smooth prior to being enameled or porcelainized by spraying and baking processes. The finished products are inspected, crated and shipped.

Certain Code 3081 operations are designated as “not otherwise classified” (NOC). These NOC operations shall apply to an insured only when no other classification more specifically describes the insured’s operations. The following is a representative list of operations somewhat related in nature to Code 3081 operations that are not assigned to Code 3081.

1925 Die Casting Mfg. 3022 Pipe or Tube Mfg.—NOC
3085 Foundry—Non-Ferrous 3027 Rolling Mill—NOC
3082 Foundry—Steel Castings 3334 Tin Foil Mfg.
3018 Iron or Steel Mfg.—Rolling Mill 3336 Type Foundry
3004 Iron or Steel Mfg.—Steelmaking    

In addition to this representative list, one should review sources such as the alphabetical index in this manual to determine whether a classification other than Code 3081 or a classification other than a classification on the above list is applicable to the operations being reviewed for classification purposes.

State Addendum
Massachusetts Code 3081 is assigned, by analogy, to insureds engaged in the manufacture of plumbers’ enameled ironware such as bathtubs, washbasins and commodes.

Codes 3004 and 3334 are not available (N/A MA).
