Loading Spout Handling Spent Foundry Sand

Published: August 31, 2016

Spout Size:  14″ (355 mm)

Handling:  Spent Foundry Sand

Location: Foundry – Central US

Features: Shortened scavenger skirt with wider, flared skirt strips.

Details: Incorporating a Vortex Loading Spout into the transportation of spent foundry sand to a landfill made significant difference in the indoor air quality where loading takes place. A Vortex Titan Slide Gate opens to begin the process. The flared skirt encompasses the sand as it fills the open truck, allowing a vacuum to capture and remove fine dust particles from the area.
