Cold-box-amin


Founding (Cold-solidifying blend, foam models)


Nowadays in production of cast metal made items used new technologies, which are based on modern materials and equipment.

1. Foundry of metal into cold solidifying mix moulds. COLD-BOX-AMIN – technique. This technique is very similar to conventional (foundry of metal into sand-clay forms), but for binding of sand mixes synthetic resins are used. For condensation of synthetic resins core box is blowed by different tertiary amines. In COLD-BOX-AMIN – technique most used are trimethylamine and dimethylamine.

Dimethylamine,  (СН3)2Н5
Trimethylamine, (CH3)3

Class of danger: 3; 
Limiting harmfulness rate: reflective sharp and nuisance smelling substance; 
MPC one time maximal: 10 mg/m3 
MPC average daily: – mg/m3 
Working area guideline, USA: 
TLV (threshold limit value): 1 ppm; 
STEL (Short term exposure limit, not more 15 minutes, no often than 4 times during a shift): 3 ppm;) 
Pregnancy risk group: IIс 
Effect: If inhaled: cough, sore throat, short wind, inhalation difficulty, headache, giddiness, weakness, loss of consciousness, sickness, eyes and respiratory tracts irritation, asphyxiation is also possible, pain in eyes, temporary loss of vision.

Using of dimethylamine and triethylamine in COLD-BOX-AMIN technology on a plant need to be provided cleaning of air on a working area and ventilating emissions. Now available several technologies of cleaning air from DMEA and TEA: absorbing (activated carbon), scrubbers (liquid absorption), biological cleaning, reburning, catalytic, photocatalytic and gas-discharge-catalytic. All these technologies havepositive and negative sides.

”Ecopromika” company Ltd worked out and produces special equipment complex for cleaning air from DMEA and TEA – “Gasconvertor  “Yatagan”. For today these type of equipment has the best “cost-quality” and “efficiency-dimensions” performance, practically doesn’t have replaceable parts, doesn’t need wastes utilization and has lowest cost of operation. “Gasconvertor “Yatagan” installations amines cleaningefficiency confirmed by many tests on a stand in laboratory environment and operating enterprises.

Rest on field experience of  “Gasconvertor  “Yatagan” on a different enterprises, related to COLD-BOX-AMIN technology we recommend:

  • To clean emissions from amines use  “Gasconvertor  “Yatagan X,X – 4000 X” installations.
  • To clean air in recycling ventilating systems use  “Gasconvertor  “Yatagan X,X – 200 R” or  “Gasconvertor  “Yatagan X,X – 2000 R”  installations.

“Gasconvertor  “Yatagan” installations for cleaning air from DMEA used on enterprises like part of ventilating systems (combined extract and input ventilation, recycling ventilation), or like separate local air cleaner.

2. Metal foundry to foam models (by consumable pattern foundry). To use this technique need to prepare cellular polystyrene disposable casts. Than these forms placed to sand filled container, sand is compressed, covered by plastic and container vacuumized (it is made to prevent smoke from model spread to all working area, usually gases are drawed off from container – depression is kept up on approximately 1 atmosphere). Metal that being found melts cellular polystyrene and replaces it and exactly copy foam plastic strickle form.

Air pollutions

Application of such technology metalware production brings to intensive polluting of air that being drawed off the container. Air that drawed off contains: gaseous products of polystyrene thermal decomposition, aerosol, smoke, smoke black and other substances. All these pollutions are harmful substances, which need to be cleaned and have very poignant smell.

Air cleaning

Fume models founding equipment producers recommend to set fire to gases which are drawed off. But real operating experience of this technology cause of different reasons showed practical impossibility of recommended cleaning method (flame body presence, necessity of jet attachment, burning instability, combustibles formation instability, CO formation……)

”Ecopromika” company Ltd worked out and produces special equipment complex for cleaning air for consumable patterns metal founding technique – “Gasconvertor “Yatagan”. For today these type of equipment has the best “cost-quality” and “efficiency-dimensions” performance, practically doesn’t have replaceable parts, doesn’t need wastes utilization and has lowest cost of operation. “Gasconvertor “Yatagan” installations amines cleaning efficiency confirmed by many tests on a stand in laboratory environment and operating enterprises.

Rest on field experience of  “Gasconvertor “Yatagan” on a different enterprises, related to fume models metal founding technology we recommend:

  •   To clean ventilating emissions use  “Gasconvertor  “Yatagan X,X – 8000 S” installations.
  •   To clean air in recycling ventilating systems use  “Gasconvertor “Yatagan X,X – 200 R”  or “Gasconvertor  “Yatagan X,X – 2000 R”  installations.
