Sand Reclamation Plant

Reclamation plant deck

Sand Reclamation Plant

(Rated at 1-3 tonne/hour)

The sand reclamation plant is for use with furane and other resin bonded sands, and allows approximately 80% of your sand to be reused. It has been designed for easy installation and is simple to use. The complete plant is floor mounted requiring no pits or special foundations, just a good quality flat concrete floor. The main attrition unit has a low level deck for ease of loading.

The unit comprises of 4 main components, the low level attrition unit (with shakeout deck), sand ladder, classifier and pneumatic conveying vessel. We can supply the system with all ancillary equipment (sand storage hopper, blowing system, etc), and offer a full installation service.

Sand Handler

Sand Handler

The sand handler has been designed to provide a simple and cost effective system of supplying green sand moulding machines with an overhead sand feed. The Sand Handler has an output of 5-6 tonnes per hour, and has proved itself to be the most economical means of feeding overhead sand to moulding machines.

The unit consists of a lower sand storage hopper with an integral drag-out conveyor feeding a belt and bucket elevator, and two overhead moulders hoppers. Mounted at floor level without the need for pits, the compactness of the system involves low capital expenditure and brings appreciable savings in time and operating costs. It is the ideal way of introducing an overhead sand feed to moulding machines in jobbing and semi-mechanised foundries.

Shaleout Conveyor  

Shake-out/Coveyor Unit

The shake-out unit has been designed as a simple and cost effective way of mechanically knocking out green sand moulds, reducing the amount of manual handling and hard labour input needed for this task.

The shake-out unit has integral conveyor which is fitted with an aerator at the discharge. The machine requires no pits making it ideal for easy installation and positioning. The shake-out deck, which is approximately 1mē, has a 250kg capacity and can handle 5-6 tonnes per hour. It is designed to work in conjunction with our sand handler, where the conveyor would feed aerated sand into the storage hopper of the handler system.

The Shake-out can be complimented by using a simple pneumatically operated mould handling unit, mounted from a simple swing jib, to further reduce the manual handling of the cast moulds.

Mould Handling

C Lear and Sons supply and manufacture a full range of mould handling solutions suitable for use with both green sand moulds and resin bonded sand moulds.

Pallet Track
Simple 4 wheel cars run on a track, allowing moulds to be closed on cars, cast on the cars and fed to the knock-out. Usually the track is in a loop allowing empty cars to be returned back to the moulding area. Extra storage lines can be incorporated in to this system by using simple points or a stacked track system using a lifting section of track.

The specially designed diablo wheels and continuous hard wearing track provide a low friction smooth ride for the moulds, increasing output and reducing broken moulds. Each track layout and car size can be individually designed to meet each customers requirements.

Pallet Lines
The pallet lines are designed to give maximum production from green sand moulding machines. Each line or track carries pallet cars which can carry several moulds at a time. As each mould is produced by the moulder it is loaded onto a car behind the moulder, when each car is full the car is pushed along the track until it reaches the casting area, where it is poured, and then moved along to cool. As more moulds are completed the cast moulds are pushed along to the dump end of the track, where they are automatically lifted and dumped into a feeder/knock out. The cars are then returned, empty, back along a bottom track to the moulders for re-use. Each pair of moulding machines usually has one track behind it, allowing tracks to run parallel where there are several pairs of machines.

Roller Conveyor
We can supply all types of roller conveyor, ball tables, junctions, transfer cars, hydraulic lift tables, etc, suitable for moulding, storage, casting and cooling.

Mould Closing Conveyor
C Lear and Sons manufacture bespoke mould closing conveyers, which are slow moving belt conveyors designed to mechanically progress the mould through the coring and closing process. Providing a continuously slow moving work top, at a convenient working height, allowing operatives to core up and close the mould, positioned between mould production and mould storage.

Crane Mounted Mould Manipulators
Mechanical mould handling is a requirement for any mould over 25kg, with this in mind C Lear and Sons can supply a range of mould manipulators, hydraulically, pneumatically or electrically operated for picking up, rotating and positioning moulds. Various models are available for different sizes/weights of moulds.

The Sand Screen/Aerator

The Sand Screen/Aerator

The Sand Screen/Aerator

The sand screen has been designed as a simple cost effective way to produce good, well aerated green sand for use by the moulders, where the use of a sand mill is not practical.

The machine has an output of 5-6 tonnes per hour, and has proved itself to be the most economical means of providing good, well aerated sand to feed back to moulders. If used with a small hopper the sand can be fed directly from a Bobcat or other similar machine.

The machine consists of vibrating mesh screen, to remove any large impurities, which feeds the sand onto a high speed rotary aerator fitted with hardened steel removable blades which aerates and throws the sand forward where it can be mounded up for reuse.

Mounted at floor level without the need for pits, single drive unit complete with starting equipment means that the machine is ready to connect up and run on delivery.
