Reclamation of Green Sand Containing Hot-Box Resin Sand and its Application
The green sand containing hot-box resin sand was reclaimed by the process of calcination followed by mechanical reclamation. The reclaimed sands were reused in the hot-box process. The grain size distribution, the shape factor, the clay content and the acid demand value were determined. The results show that the acid demand value of the reclaimed sand is higher than that of the base sand. Compared with the base sand, the grain size of the reclaimed sand is almost no difference. It can also be observed that the tensile strength of the molding sand is influenced by the acid demand value and clay content, but the reclaimed sand can still meet the casting process needs. In addition, the reclaimed green sand is satisfactory for hot-box process.
