Casting, Ferrous Particles, Foundry sand, Magnetic Drum, Separator
casting industry is one of the large contributors in India’s industrial sector. Sand casting is one of the important type of casting processes. The major raw material in casting industry in cast iron or cast steel which contains pure iron along with other alloying materials like carbon, manganese, magnesium etc. In the sand casting process, the molten metal is poured into the sand mould and after solidification that mould is broken and part is taken out. The sand is then reused after filtering and it contains the small particles of the ferrous particles. This paper focuses on design and development of a machine which can efficiently separates these ferrous particles from sand, thus saving material cost of the Industry. This machine can separate large as well as mini particles from sand by using basic property of ferrous material, i.e. magnetism.
