CEC invented the Sand Lion® 3-in-1 Foundry System. Today it is synonymous with casting efficiency in modern plants around the world. CEC designs Aluminum Thermal Systems that not only make your casting production more cost efficient, but also more reliable and environmentally friendly.
We design each Sand Lion® system to suit detailed specifications that are developed after a careful audit of the casting process, including material handling systems and facilities. We work with you as a team member. Your engineering representative is supported by CEC foundry specialists who are available to work on your project from preliminary design to final installation and system ramp up.
Working for you - the combined experience of patented casting handling and heat treatment technologies. CEC experience in post Aluminum casting Heat Treat Systems goes back nearly 50 years. Evolving from special engineering expertise in Aluminum Thermal Systems in a range of industries, our depth and breadth of expertise today brings unique benefits to metal casters worldwide.
Let our staff show you how to lower costs and improve your foundry yield.
CEC systems adapt to existing casting process lines to minimize handling. Castings with cores or sand molds are loaded directly into the Sand Lion® system immediately after pouring. Clean, heat-treated castings exit ready for further processing.
Even complex castings are thoroughly cleaned and heat treated with a precise atmospheric balance, heat and high velocity air. Vibration or knockout of the casting is eliminated.
System Recycling ROI
Mold and Core sand is cleaned as part of the Sand Lion® process. Heat and fluidizing air purifies sand and supports casting heat treatment. 60% energy savings are not uncommon.
No more stand-alone shakeout, heat treatment, and thermal sand reclaimer equipment with attendant handling and plant floor space.
Reliability and Performance
Proven the world over with more than 45 Sand Lion® systems operating worldwide.
Outgases are environmentally safe.
