New Sand Regeneration Process

GVF Impianti, which has been operating for 60 years in the foundry sector providing regeneration plants with a capacity of 0,5 to 10 Ton/h, invested in a research project aimed at developing new technological innovation solutions for the realization of a new process for the recovery and reuse of exhausted sands.

The system allows to recover the exhausted sand and to bring it back to the same quality of the virgin sands. This significantly reduces the consumption of raw materials and helps to limit the environmental impact of foundry. In fact, with this regeneration process it's possible to recovery the sand of the casting system.

Our innovative proposal

research & development

Raw materials analysis.

tailor-made Process

Tailor-made productive process development based on the raw materials analysis’ results.

Lifetime Services

Services, Support and Spare parts during the whole plant’s lifecycle.

Industry 4.0

Technology and Automation for the optimization of the industrial processes’ performances.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

issues of The Sand in the Casting System

Virgin Raw Materials 

High quantity of raw materials consumption (Sand and Binders).

Logistics Costs

High logistic costs both inside the company and related to the raw materials’ supply and disposal.

Material's Permeability

Reduction of material’s permeability.

Production Waste

Production waste due to the sand’s low permeability.

Materials Disposal

Continuous disposal of quality raw materials which leads to high environmental, technological/organizational and economic impact.

Cast Quality

Reduction of cast quality due to raw materials deterioration.

TAILOR-MADE REGENERATION PROCESS

Main Goal: Sustaining the Environment

Conceiving products and applications while always respecting the world that surrounds us.

Devising innovative technological solutions integrated into a global vision of the production cycle to solve problems in managing raw materials and finished products throughout the various stages of manufacturing, from storage to transport, from selection to dosage, to air treatment and the recovery of manufacturing waste.

GVF Impianti designs systems and solutions which improve not only the production and maintenance cycle but also the ecosystem around us.
Listening to and understanding our customers’ requirements and devising the most appropriate solutions is an integral part of our company’s background. Beside the main intervention areas of GVF Impianti Srl.
Circular Economy, Recycling and Reuse

REDUCTION OF VIRGIN RAW MATERIALS’ CONSUMPTION

By means of the reclamation process, from the exhaust foundry sand, the sand is reclaimed, and it can be used again inside the production process.

The new raw material purchases are reduced to a minimum.

REDUCTION OF LOGISTICS/TRANSPORT COSTS

Through the reduction of the new raw material needed.
This allows also the CO2 emissions reduction.

REDUCTION OF WASTE MATERIAL

The waste is transformed into a quality material which can be reused, decreasing the quantity of material sent to the landfill.
