Water addition for foundry applications

Reducing and maintaining sand temperatures in foundry applications is essential to efficient foundry performance. Reduction in sand temperatures can be accomplished in a variety of General Kinematics equipment solutions, including devices such as our VIBRA-DRUM® Sand and Casting Processors and our Vibratory Fluid Bed Sand Coolers.

The perfect accessory for these devices is found with GK’s SPRAYCOOL” water addition systems. SPRAYCOOL automatically responds to varying in-feed sand characteristics such as temperature and volume, and provides just the right amount of moisture to assure desired discharge temperature and moisture content.

Of course, maximum efficiency occurs when the in-feed material is in the form of a homogeneous mixture, so it is suggested that a blender be used before entry into the cooler.

The SPRAYCOOL is an economical method to assure that the flow of return sand is conditioned to exacting specifications.
