An Attrition Mill is used for reducing “no bake” bottom sand lumps to “grain size” of minus 20 mesh or green sand to small particles. Sand is dumped into the rear hopper section. The lumps rub on one another and produce “fine” grains which can convey up a steep incline. A screen deck near the discharge end removes the grain size sand and discharges it to the side. “Overs”, such as scrap metal or cores, discharge “over end”. An overhead magnet can be added to remove the tramp metal. Also, by adding a cover and an air stream blowing up through the screen deck, air classification is achieved. This removes the lighter chemical bond grains from the sand. This makes the unit a SAND RECLAIMER with a favorable LOI (Loss on Ignition).
Kinergy Driven Foundry Machines
The low maintenance required of Kinergy driven machines lends itself very well to the foundry industry. In addition, the concept of one simple “Common Drive” for Foundry Vibrating Equipment delivers multiple benefits:
- A 75% decrease in power consumption for these needed units.
- The electrical control for output adjustment is greatly simplified.
- Load abuse is tolerated.
- The few interchangeable drive components are a relief to maintenance.
- The cost is competitive with units equipped with alternate drives.
A wide array of equipment is available to assist the foundry industry in becoming more efficient and cost-effective. The Kinergy Foundry Product Line includes:
The Feed Rate is Electrically Adjustable

Free Booklet: "Introducing Vibratory Machines for Material Handling"
Realizing vibrations can be very destructive, Engineers seldom considered intentionally creating vibrations in a machine to perform a beneficial function. Even so, over the years and by taking advantage of the principle of “Natural Frequency”, these purposely vibrated machines have been gradually but steadily improved. Thus, these Electro-Mechanical Machines now have more Electrical Operating Versatility and are ranked among the most “Energy Efficient” available. This history and the progressive evolution are explained in the Booklet entitled “Introducing Vibratory Machines for Material Handling”. The booklet is intended to be educational and is available upon request.
