Foundry sand is clean, uniformly sized, high quality silica sand, used in foundry casting processes. The sand is bonded to form molds or patterns used for ferrous (iron and steel) and non-ferrous (copper, aluminum, brass) metal castings. Shake-out sand from completed metal casting are often reclaimed back into the foundry sand process.
Cement cooling is an important step in the cement production process, as it reduces the chance of gypsum dehydration and the formation of lumps, reducing the overall quality of the final cement. Learn how cement is cooled using innovative new technology that is more energy- and cost-efficient.
With over half of the world’s food supply dependent on fertilizer due to nutrient lacking soil, the importance of fertilizer production, fertilizer storage and transport continues to grow.
