High-Performance Rotary Machines for Serious Metalcasters
Innovative features. Less maintenance. Awesome Service.
How do you make a product better? You ask the people who are using it. That is exactly what GK did when designing the DUCTA-SERIES™ line of rotary drums. Easy to service design, liners that don’t require a football team to install, and a total package concept with GK Sales and Service to back you up are just a few of the advantages GK’s DUCTA-SERIES™ brings to your foundry.
Two styles to best fit your process.
Being an engineered solutions company means we are always looking for different and better ways to improve the equipment going into your process. The same goes with our rotary foundry drums. General Kinematics evaluates your process requirements and installation location, then creates a custom solution ideal for you. We have different design philosophies depending on your application and process layout.
XL Series Rotary Drums
Our lowest maintenance option is the DUCTA-SERIES XL line of rotary drums. These drums separate sand, tramp metal, and/or media from the drum body into a vibratory or belt conveyor located below. This eliminates the need to ever replace your drum body, as no material comes in contact with the shell. It also allows multiple levels of screening and classifying of sand and metallics outside the drum body. Wear areas are easy to access and easy to replace abrasion resistant panels that last and last.
SL Series Rotary Drums
Another option is our DUCTA-SERIES SL line of rotary drums. These drums utilize the inner shell of the drum to convey material back to the inlet sand discharge / media return wheel, but are easier to service than traditional designs. GK’s LOCK-TITE liner system panels are easier to replace, and allow easy access to the area between the liner and the body for quick cleaning and repair. DUCTA-SERIES™ SL bodies and LOCK-TITE liners are also available as a retrofit for existing rotary drums, so you can upgrade existing installations without completely converting your foundry line.
