- What is foundry sand?
The metal casting industry generates spent foundry sands. Foundries purchase new, virgin sand to make casting molds, and the sand is reused numerous times within the foundry. This reuse eventually renders the sand unsuitable for use in casting molds, and a portion of the sand is continuously removed and replaced with virgin sand.

Foundry processes can be divided into two types:- ferrous foundries and non-ferrous foundries. Foundry processes involve making the mould and the core, melting and pouring the metal into the mould, and finally removing the mould and core and finishing the product. Although different processes differ in the number of steps required to make the final product. Metal casting process starts with creation of mold. Metal that can be molted will be poured into this mould and cooled.
Beneficial Uses of Spent Foundry Sands
A foundry is a factory that produces metal castings. Metals are cast into shapes by melting them into a liquid, pouring the metal into a mold, and removing the mold material after the metal has solidified as it cools. The most common metals processed are aluminium and cast iron. However, other metals, such as bronze , brass , steel , magnesium , and zinc , are also used to produce castings in foundries. In this process, parts of desired shapes and sizes can be formed. Foundries are one of the largest contributors to the manufacturing recycling movement, melting and recasting millions of tons of scrap metal every year to create new durable goods. Moreover, many foundries use sand in their molding process.
Different Types of Casting Processes Used in Manufacturing
Previously we had written a blog article on the different types of cores and their purposes in sand castings. The blog has continued to be regularly viewed by guests on our site which prompted me to revisit the article. First lets reexamine what a core is and what a core is used for in the casting making process. A core is basically what the name entitles it, it goes in the center of a hollow casting. A core is made of chemically bound sand, the same type of sand used throughout the sand casting process.
Foundry sand is clean, uniformly sized, high quality silica sand, used in foundry casting processes. The sand is bonded to form molds or patterns used for ferrous iron and steel and non-ferrous copper, aluminum, brass metal castings. Shake-out sand from completed metal casting are often reclaimed back into the foundry sand process. Green Sand is silica sand with minor ingredient additives such as bentonite clay, water, and sea coal.
Metal casting is defined as the process in which molten metal is poured into a mould that contains a hollow cavity of a desired geometrical shape and allowed to cool down to form a solidified part. Primarily, casting produces ingots and shapes.

Foundry Manual , , is an update to the Foundry Manual that was created primarily for use by foundry personnel aboard repair ships and tenders. In this online version of the manual we have attempted to keep the flavor of the original layout while taking advantage of the Web's universal accessibility. Different browsers and fonts will cause the text to move, but the text will remain roughly where it is in the original manual. In addition to errors we have attempted to preserve from the original this text was captured by optical character recognition.
