Reclamation of used green sand in small scale foundries

Foundry industry uses sand for the production of molds and cores and it is one of the largest consumers of sand. Pouring of molten metal into the molds at higher temperature (1000 C) leads to deactivation of bentonite based binders present in the sand. These binders are responsible for the strength of mold. The deactivated bentonite binder forms a dead coating on the surface of sand making

Forget Southern! Go Western with green sand binders

01/10/2002A trend in green sand binders has emerged that has gone relatively unnoticed. Traditionally, green sand binders have been a blend of Western (Sodium) Bentonite and Southern (Calcium) Bentonite. The new trend is a reduction in the use of Southern Bentonite for preblends, shifting to a predominately Western Bentonite bonded green sand mold.
