Task

After unpacking, the used sand contaminated by the moulding facilities must be cooled and processed as quickly as possible. At the same time, cooling, dosing of additives as well as mixing must be realised in a batchcooler with mixing tool. The dosing of the additives such as bentonite, GKB and new sand depends on the mould.

Approach

The cool_mix control mode will spice up your batchcooler. The batchcooler with mixing tool is operated in batch mode. Cooling and dosing of the additives takes place sequentially in order to keep the amount of dust low by means of the cooler’s suction. This accomplishes two functions in one aggregate. Thus the old sand is processed as early as possible and the residence time in the old sand bunker is optimally used.

Solution

The cool_mix control mode organises this intelligent process. The batchcooler is supplemented by mixer functions and receives, among other things, a weighing feature, which allows it to operate in batches. The sequential progression of the initial cooling and the subsequent addition of bentonite, the exhaustion of the freshly dosed bentonites can be avoided by cutting of the cooling air supply. Afterwards the freshly conditioned old sand can remain in the bunker for aging purposes and will only need to be brought to its target moisture level in the end mixer.

The dosing of the additives happens via the process of the moulding material balancing with the programme package FORM_REG. For this purpose, the information of the moulding facilities are processed via the moulding programme in order to balance the thermal waste and the dilution caused by the core sand supply.
