ThepH-dependent leaching characteristics of chromium were furtherinvestigated. It was found that all spent foundry sandscontain PAHs in which naphthalene is about 30%.Get Price
After green sand is used to make a casting, the sand is "spent," in other words, the sand cannot be used again for casting without an expensive process of separating out the materials to reuse what is still good in the sand mixture.Get Price
Aug 11, 2009 · Spent foundry sands (SFSs) often demonstrate soil-like qualities making them potentially attractive components in manufactured soils and useful for enhancing soil blend physical and chemical properties (Dungan et al. 2006, 2007; Lindsay and Logan 2005; McCoy 1998).[PDF]Get Price
CHARACTERISTICS OF SPENT FOUNDRY SANDS 353 (2) Of the PAH compounds, naphthalene was the most important one in spent sands. About 30% PAH compounds consisted of naphthalene. Chrysenetri- phenylene was much lower than naphthalene in spent sands.
In most cases if a foundry generates two tons/hour of disposal sand, then sand reclamation should be investigated. For foundries that currently ship their spent sand to approved landfill sites, the costs of disposal and new sand purchases can easily justify investing in an in-house sand-reclamation system.Get Price
Apr 14, 2015 · COLUMBUS, Ohio — A study by scientists at The Ohio State University played a key role in a recent public health and environmental risk assessment of reusing spent foundry sands, or SFS, in certain soil-related uses. The sands are a byproduct from the metal casting industry.Get Price
Apr 05, 2016 · This risk assessment concluded that the beneficial uses of silica-based spent foundry sands ( from iron, steel and aluminum foundry operations when used in manufactured soils, soil-less potting media and roadway subbase, are protective of human health and the environment. Based on this conclusion, and the available environmental and economic benefits, the EPA and US Department of .Get Price
Foundry sand consists primarily of silica sand (>80% silcon dioxide), coated with a thin film of burnt carbon and residual binder (Du et al 2002). Loss on ignition in foundry sand has been reported by the American Foundrymen's Association (1991) to be around 5%. Depending on the binder and type of metal being cast, the pH of foundry sand can[PDF]Get Price
Spent Foundry Sand's Second Life: OK to Use in Some Soils. COLUMBUS, Ohio — A study by scientists at The Ohio State University played a key role in a recent public health and environmental risk assessment of reusing spent foundry sands, or SFS, in certain soil-related uses.Get Price
Spent foundry sand (SFS), is high quality silica sand that is a byproduct from the production of both ferrous and nonferrous metal casting and, its physical and chemical characteristics depend in great part, on the type of casting process and the industry sector from which it originates .
Nov 17, 2010 · However, because the use of spent foundry sand (SFS) is currently very limited in the concrete industry, this study investigates whether SFS can successfully be used as a sand replacement material in cost-effective, green, self-consolidating concrete (SCC).Get Price
(31;32;33;34) Spent foundry sand often contains metals and core material containing partially degraded binder. Spent foundry sand may contain leachable contaminants, including heavy metals and phenols that are absorbed by the sand during the molding process and casting operations.Get Price
Foundry Sand Recycling. Over 70% of the sand used for making castings is recycled every year. This 'spent' sand finds new life in applications from road and general construction, and agricultural use to and geotechnical fill. It adds up to over 400,000 tons! It keeps the sand out of landfills and reduces the need for mining new materials.Get Price

The foundry industry is interested in developing applications that would allow the re-use of spent foundry sand and spent investment casting shell material. The latter in particular is generally inert and has good properties for use in construction for instance. Many foundries do reclaim sand for re-use but this is not possible in all cases.Get Price
The spent foundry sand, that is, the sand that is removed, is either recycled in a non-foundry application or landfilled. Estimates are that less than 15 percent of the 6-10 million tons of spent foundry sands generated annually is recycled.Get Price
What is Foundry Sand? • Foundry sand is a high-quality uniform silica sand that is used to make molds and cores for ferrous and nonferrous metal castings. • Foundry sands typically comprise of >80% high-quality silica sand, 5-10% bentoniteclay, 2 to 5% water and less than 5% sea coal.Get Price
spent foundry sand and other solid waste when the reuse is determined to be "legitimate." Foundries and the metal casting industry generate spent foundry sand as part of their process. These facilities purchase new, sand to make casting molds and reuse the sand several times within the foundry. Eventually, the foundryGet Price
Jan 09, 2015 · The spent foundry sands are then reused in a number of ways, including as an ingredient in potting soil and as a foundation layer in roadway construction. The risk assessment results are specific to silica-based spent foundry sands from iron, steel and aluminum foundry operations. Spent foundry sands from leaded and nonleaded brass and bronze foundries, and spent foundry sands containing olivine sand.
