The heart of your foundry starts with your sand.
Great castings come from great molds. To make those molds great you need sand that is ready to perform. General Kinematics sand handling, cooling, and reclamation solutions help you prepare your sand for continual use.
The right temperature sand makes a big difference for downstream processing. Improper temperature or moisture content can throw off your entire casting operation. GK provides a wide range of sand cooling and water addition technology to accurately condition your sand. From vibratory sand coolers to our DUCTA-COOL™ rotary cooling drums, GK has the right technology to improve your foundry process.
GK’s VIBRA-MILL™ line of sand reclaimers quickly reduce sand lumps to minus 20 mesh with original grain size distribution and corresponding reduction in L.O.I. With proper addition of new sand, reclaimed material is clean and ready for new mold production without further attrition.
Conveying, Feeding, and Screening
General Kinematics low maintenance vibratory equipment excels at sand handling throughout the foundry. Bin activators and feeders help meter materials, conveyors help transport, and vibratory screens remove tramp metal or other contaminates from your sand stream. Unlimited systems can be achieved based on your facility, tonnage, and sand requirements.
