How to achieve significant economies in the consumption of additives and reduce the level of casting scraps.
A new concept for the treatment of return sand in green sand moulding plants.


SPACE, thanks to its experience since 1979, is specialized in the treatment of moulding green sand and has built its excellent reputation thanks to the innovative, whose concept is to achieve the best characteristics of the sand with the least consumptions.


WHAT IS THE SPACE SYSTEM?

Premixer to homogenize
the return sand, by batching  
water and additions.
Fluid bed cooler, where the values 
of moisture and temperature are
brought to the required parameters,
in very strict limits.
The treated return sand is introduced
into the storage silos, where the
bentonite is activated slowly and
in a natural way.
Intensive mixer where it takes place
the final adjustment of the moulding 
sand, also by mean of an accurate
automatic management system.

ADVANTAGES OF THE SPACE SYSTEM

The latest studies on SPACE installations at some of our most important customers have shown:

  • Reduced consumption of additives between             10% and 16%
  • Increase in the efficiency of the mixer from               65% to 85%
  • reduction of defective/broken moulds between    5% and 10%
  • Improvement of the green sand properties, reduction of the scraps and lower costs for shotblasting and casting fettling.


WHY TO CHOOSE THE SPACE SYSTEM?


Because the concept on which our technology is based, the instruments for measuring and control, the constructive quality of the machines, the very little maintenance requirements as well as the negligible consumption of spare parts, allow us to assert that today, the equipment we propose provides the most innovative and competitive solution in the world market.
