DUCTA-COOL™ Rotary Dryers and Cooling Drums
GK’s DUCTA-COOL™ Rotary Dryer and Cooling Drum combines sand cooling, sand and casting separation, and casting cooling in one efficient rotary drum. Gentle tumbling action, coupled with air circulation, creates an evaporative cooling effect to reduce casting temperatures during processing. Sand lumps are broken down as well as blended prior to being screened off at the end of the drum and then returned to the sand system. Put it all together, and you get one rotary dryer machine for multiple functions in an easy to install and maintain equipment package.
