Title: VACLAIM, a method to remove pollution, reclaim Nobake moldsand, convert binder waste into fuel, and recover casting heat in foundry molds during casting

Abstract

The development program was carried out at the Experimental Foundry at the Abex Research Center, Mahwah, NJ. Objectives were met and data collected to design VACLAIM systems. Feasibility was established and several configurations of equipment used with success. The experiments included test and commercial castings. VACLAIM reduces foundry energy needs, materials, investment costs, operating costs, and improves foundry atmospheres and casting quality in a single step. The system is expected to be installed in 60 or more foundries in the next ten years to save up to $27 million per year in investment and processing costs.
