The first operation, which utilizes vertically-parted molding and excellent mulling, increased the level of Western Bentonite by about 10%.
The additive also improved the cumulative mulling effect of the return sand by increasing the water bonding capabilities.
The Mulling Group was introduced to the benefits of TeleComputing's service offering by Maximum Connectivity, a TeleComputing TECpartner based in Atlanta, Georgia.
The chemical surfactants can be added to a foundry molding sand either in the preblend or as an individual ingredient at the foundry (usually at the mulling station).
Specifically, a return sand with a temperature range of 120-160F(49-71C) is hot enough to demonstrate inconsistent mulling properties and control problems.
In addition, the study reviewed mulling properties of the seacoal supplements and the selection of the materials in a preblend.
Cool sands require less clay and additives, less mulling or mixing time, and produce a more consistent prepared sand.
Low MB clay/water ratios can be caused by dry or hot return sand, insufficient mulling time (high sand demand), high sodium (western)/calcium (southern) bentonite ratios, poor equipment maintenance or excessive moisture sponge levels (dead material that competes with clay for water).
A mass or ball of silica grains, clay and additives with water forms during mulling and aeration, and molding compresses these agglomerated green sand constituents into a near-maximum bulk density.
If the doors are of the type that open when high amperage is reached, the door may open before sufficient mulling is achieved;
This concern has increased further with higher core sand-to-molding ratios and the ever-shortening of available mulling times in high-speed molding sands.
