MECAL has recently supplied a vacuum cleaning system to an engine casting plant in Geelong, Australia.
The vacuum system consists of a ducted pipe system with 20 hose connection points.
The collected material, of moulding and spent sand and core pieces up to 25mm diameter, is conveyed to a central storage bin and automatically discharged into waste bins.
The power of the system is 110kW, 415V and has an 80 per cent vacuum pump enabling a minimum conveying rate of three to eight tonnes an hour at 70 metre distance.
Mecal manufactures vacuum systems, both mobile and centralised, for many and varied applications.
