Description

Archives of Foundry Engineering continues the publishing activity started by Foundry Commission of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN) in Katowice in 1978. The initiator of it was the first Chairman Professor Dr Eng. Wacław Sakwa – Corresponding Member of PAN, Honorary Doctor of Czestochowa University of Technology and Silesian University of Technology. This periodical first name was „Solidification of Metals and Alloys” , and made possible to publish the results of works achieved in the field of the Basic Problems Research Cooperation. The subject of publications was related to the title of the periodical and concerned widely understand problems of metals and alloys crystallization in a casting mold. In 1978-2000 the 44 issues have been published. Since 2001 the Foundry Commission has had patronage of the annually published “Archives of Foundry” and since 2007 quarterly published “Archives of Foundry Engineering”. Thematic scope includes scientific issues of foundry industry:

  • Theoretical Aspects of Casting Processes,
  • Innovative Foundry Technologies and Materials,
  • Foundry Processes Computer Aiding,
  • Mechanization, Automation and Robotics in Foundry,
  • Transport Systems in Foundry,
  • Castings Quality Management,
  • Environmental Protection.

Abstract

The results of investigations of moulding sands with an inorganic binder called GEOPOL, developed by the SAND TEAM Company are

presented in the paper. Hardeners of various hardening rates are used for moulding sands with this binder. The main aim of investigations

was determination of the influence of the hardening rate of moulding sands with the GEOPOL binder on technological properties of these

sands (bending strength, tensile strength, permeability and grindability). In addition, the final strength of moulding sands of the selected

compositions was determined by two methods: by splitting strength and shear strength measurements. No essential influence of the

hardening rate on such parameters as: permeability, grindability and final strength was found. However, the sand in which the slowest

hardener (SA 72) were used, after 1 hour of holding, had the tensile and bending strength practically zero. Thus, the time needed for taking

to pieces the mould made of such moulding sand will be 1.5 - 2 hours.
