Indirect Heat-Exchange Technology for Sand Conditioning

Plate bank-style system with closed-loop water-temperature control module maintains sand temperature to +/-1° prior to blending

In the Midwest, seasonal temperature swings cause 70°F (21°C) changes to core sand temperature. Temperature variations in core and molding sand causes inefficiencies to the coremaking process, reduces core quality, and increases rework. Foundries looking for a technological solution to sand temperature variations should consider an innovation by Solex Thermal Sciences, which has decades of experience in bulk solids handling and heat transfer for the fertilizers, oilseeds, proppant,
