Determination of recycle potential in waste green foundry ...

2021-12-1  1. Introduction. According to Cruz et al. (2009), in most of the foundries, green sand is used with chemically bonded sand for making metal castings and hence the waste sand of these foundries generally contains a mixture of both, green sand and chemically bonded sand. Zanetti and Fiore (2003) pointed out that the mixing of sand occurs during the knockout or demolding

A New Look at Recycling Green Sand Wastes • Plymouth

Finished castings ultimately leave their molds but the bonded sand remains, and what to do with that sand is one of those challenges that green-sand casters routinely discuss. Reportedly, the U.S. foundry industry consumed approximately 700,000 tons of bentonite and carbon during 2018. “Another dimension to the challenge is regulatory.

Shakeout Table Improves Sand Reclamation in Foundry

2021-11-27  The shakeout is a core component of a foundry’s casting process. It removes residual sand from the casting mold by shaking the casting until the sand has separated from the casting. The casting then moves down the process for cleaning and finishing, while residual sand remains. This leaves the foundry with a decision to make on what to do ...
