No Bake Sand Casting of Alloy A356 Airlock Housing for the Pneumatic Conveying Industry

A client from the petro-chemical industry contracted Fort Worth Aluminum Foundry to cast a series of airlock housings used in the pneumatic conveying of granular products. Using our no bake, flaskless molding equipment, which met tolerances as low as (±) .030 of an inch, we were able to successfully sand cast these units for our customer, delivering all products to our buyer's facility in Kansas.

Constructed from Alloy A356 material, each sand casted unit measured 6 feet high and weighed 800 pounds. We provided all airlock housings with a rough sand casted finish and performed T6 heat treatment, ensuring maximum product durability. Successfully fulfilling all of our client's project requirements, we produced a total of 10 airlock housings within a two year period for this consumer.
