Rotary Media Drums
The Safe, Clean, & Efficient Alternative to Vibratory Shakeouts
Forget shakeouts, call them rollouts. The DIDION Rotary Media Drum® has revolutionized the whole vibratory shakeout process. Now in use in 55 countries, the patented dual chamber design of the machine accomplishes many tasks in one easy step.
Rotary Sand / Casting Separators
Method of Operation: Poured molds are delivered into the intake end of the rotary drum.
Durability: The rugged, unitized construction of the DIDION is designed with dependability and simplicity in mind.
Adaptability: The DIDION is designed for use in any type of molding system-from conventional to automatic.
Rotary Lump Crusher / Sand Reclaimers
Dealing with spent sand has always been a challenge for foundries, but with environmental regulations getting more stringent all the time, reclaiming one's sand is becoming much more critical to success than ever.
Rotary Sand Screens
Without a doubt, the DIDION Rotary Sand Screen is the most economical, efficient and reliable machine on the market.
No other piece of equipment can blend, condition, and remove core butts and tramp metal from return sand in one easy step.
Rotary Sand Blending / Cooling Drums
These machines blend, cool, condition, screen, and classify green return sand efficiently to improve the sand system and increase production. You'll reduce scrap and cleaning costs with lower sand temperature and superior sand conditioning. Integral sand screening eliminates down stream screening equipment. Low energy consumption, low CFM requirements, minimum installation time and low operating cost increases profitability. Machine sizes range from 25 to 750 tons per hour of green sand.
Rotary Dross / Slag Metal Reclaimers
Dross & Slag Metal Reclamation Systems
DIDION Rotary Dross / Slag Metal Reclaimers liberate and reclaim valuable metallics from large slag & dross chunks using a patented design. The machine features a Dynamically Isolated Articulated Concentric Crusher with serrated teeth that provides a positive action for reducing large chunks. The material is first screened in an aggressive attrition chamber through an extra heavy-duty cast alloyed wear-resistant liner which is two inches thick for long life. The material is tumbled again in the Star Chamber and then enters the final screening system where the slag & dross is separated and air classified from the reclaimed metal.
Rotary Sprue Crusher / Cleaners
High rotary tumble action crushes core butts and cleans the sand off gates, runners, and sprue. Melting efficiency is increased with clean and condensed melting stock. The sand is recovered and slag handling and disposal costs are greatly reduced as well. The machine eliminates shot blasting of the melt returns and can process large mold/core lumps. Additional savings include the elimination of the cleaning room bottleneck as well as the need for expensive jaw crushers.
Rotary Carbon Separator / Thimble Cleaners
DIDION Rotary Carbon Separator / Thimble Cleaners utilize a highly efficient tumbling action for thorough cleaning of carbon from cast iron thimbles, including recesses for a cleaner melt. The patented design with segmented alloyed wear-liners provide lower noise, much better wear resistance, and ease of replacement. Cost savings include the elimination of shot blasting altogether, saving equipment, shot consumption, wear parts, maintenance time, floor space, and labor costs. The machine also serves as a horizontal storage silo with fully automatic feed of thimbles to reduce labor costs.
After we designed the best dryer available, we also made sure that it was safe (OSHA approved); efficient (open end design for easy loading); economical (low horsepower, low CFM requirements); dependable (laser aligned to minimize wear).
