DUCTA-SERIES™ Rotary Foundry Drums Rotary Drums for Serious Metalcasters
General Kinematics DUCTA-SERIES™ Rotary Drums are a better solution in rotary drum technology. General Kinematics DUCTA-SERIES™ Rotary Drums have been designed using feedback from existing rotary drum users to eliminate the maintenance headaches and expensive and labor intensive replacement parts found in current rotary drum offerings. This provides metalcasters with a superior product in both safety and cost efficiency.
No material contacts the main drum body of the DUCTA-SERIES™ Rotary Drum, so you will not wear holes through the shell of your drum or have to figure out how to get a new drum body installed into your tight foundry line.
GK’s patent-pending rotary drum liner design uses easy to install liner segments which are bolted down during installation and operation. No more tricky pins, falling segment sections, or heavy castings to deal with when it’s time to change liners.
EASIER TO SERVICE
GK’s packaged rotary drum drive system is located on the outside of the rotary drum system at eye level for easy maintenance… no more climbing under the drum to check belts or maintain the drive.
Every part on the DUCTA-SERIES™ Rotary Drum system is easily accessible and serviceable using standard GK and off the shelf components, making maintenance easy.
CLEANER AND COOLER CASTINGS
The design of GK’s rotary drums lead to improved dust collection and cooling, pulling air through the perforated deck, around the castings, and up through the collection ports. The ambient air wicks away hot air and steam, cooling castings to reduce possible surface defects.
Clear access between the drum body and conveyor allows for cleaning and inspection of both the rotary drum and the media conveyor below, as well as eliminating material jams.
