Sand Reclamation

Sand reclamation is the process of cleaning sand contaminated with binders or coatings for reuse in the metal casting facility. Two common reclamation processes are thermal and mechanical reclamation. Mechanical reclamation systems use friction to remove leftover resin or coating from the individual sand grains. This process removes a large portion of the contaminants but fails to get the sand completely clean. Thermal reclamation heats the sand to the desired temperature to burn off all the excess resin, coatings, and chemicals on the sand grains. Due to thermal reclamation burning off all the contaminates it is the preferred form of reclamation.

This reclamation will save your facility money on the amount of sand purchased, shipping, and disposal costs. An often overlooked benefit of sand reclamation is improved casting quality. With better control of your raw materials, your metal casting facility will be able to improve casting quality. Give Carpenter Brothers a call today to discuss your project.

About Us

Carpenter Brothers, Inc. is the leading supplier of equipment, consumables, and technical expertise for the metal casting industry. Founded in 1917, by Everett and Milton Carpenter, the brothers were able to use their unique foundry experiences to solve the problem of the day: a reliable sand source.  They got their foot in the door by selling natural bonded molding sand, which was mined by hand, loaded into horse-drawn carts, and then delivered to customers.  Not only did they sell the sand, but their technical expertise was readily available for all customers, big or small, to help manufacture the best castings. After surviving The Great Depression, Carpenter Brothers, Inc. slowly increased the number of products it distributed and expanded its sales territory into what it is today.
