5.03.6.8.2 Sand Preparation. Molding sand is prepared in a screw mixer if organic binders are to be used. Binder preparations are added to the sand and the mixer evenly distributes the resin over the sand grains. Samples are taken and tested for strength to ensure the mix is correct.
Properties of Molding Material Dry Strength - It is the strength of the molding sand in dry conditions. When the molten metal is poured in the mold, the sand around the mold cavity is quickly converted into dry sand as the moisture in the sand evaporates due to the heat of the molten metal. At this stage the molding sand must posses the sufficient strength to retain the exact shape of ...

Aug 01, 2009 Preparation of moulding sand mixturesVarious mixing ratios of silica sand and clay were prepared. Each silica sand and clay composition was mixed together in the dry state for 10 min in the first instance to facilitate thorough mixing. Five percent tempering water was gradually added to the mixture while mixing was done again for another 10 min.
In preparation for the sand casting lab, the sand, clay, and water were combined and mixed. 50Lbs of 180 grain sand, 50lbs of 120 grain sand, 7lbs of clay, and 1 qt. of water were combined in the muller. The muller coats the sand with clay and adds enough moisture to allow the sand mixture to stick together enough to hold its form. 1.
The sand in its natural or moist state is called green sand. It is also called tempered sand. It is a mixture of sand with 20 to 30 percent clay, having total amount of water from 6 to 10 percent.

Features. Adaptive Tooling. Muller wheels are mounted on independent, spring-loaded suspensions. As the molding sand mixture increases in volume and strength, the mullers react by raising and increasing the mulling pressure. This is a versatile and inexpensive source of mixing energy which provides the kneading and compression action of mulling.
