Indirect heat exchange technology for sand conditioning

Written By: TJ van Schalkwyk and Andy Nix 

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 core making process, reduces core quality, and increases rework.

Foundries looking for a technological solution to sand temperature variations should consider an innovation by Solex Thermal Science Inc. (Solex), which has decades of experience in bulk solids handling and heat transfer for the fertilizers, oilseeds, proppants, salt, and sugar processing industries.
