India's first indigenously designed and built 5 TPH Capacity Thermal Reclamation System commissioned at INDO SHELL MOULD P. LTD, Coimbatore
India's first Thermal Reclamation System of 5 MTPH has been commissioned by Wesman at Indo Shell Mould Pvt Ltd, Coimbatore. The system is first of its kind to be designed, built, installed and commissioned indigenously. Before this, no system of such large capacity has been made with complete indigenous technology.
The complete system consists of the following - Grid with Collecting Bin, Steep Angle Belt Conveyor, Primary Lumpreducer, Inclined Belt Conveyor, Overband Magnetic Separator to remove metal particles, Secondary Lumpreducer, Bucket Elevator, Storage Bunker for Mechanically Reclaimed Sand, Screw Feeder, Combustor with Sand Preheater & Air Preheater, High Temperature Cooler/Classifier, Pneumatic Sand Transporter, Storage Bunker for Thermally Reclaimed Sand, Cyclone Dust Collector, Wet Scrubber type Dust Collection equipment
The system handles Shell Sand with an incoming Loss on Ignition value of 2.8 and after thermal reclamation. The thermally reclaimed sand has a LOI value of 0.05. Fuel for the system is LPG and a typical fuel consumption figure is 10 Kgs. per Ton of Sand. Wesman can supply a plant that uses LDO or HSD as fuel in case gas is not available.
Pay back period for such a plant is expected to be less than a year depending on the quantity of sand reclaimed by continuous use. With this installation, Wesman has designed and installed three Thermal Reclamation Systems – two of 2 TPH Capacity and one 5 TPH Capacity.
Thermal Sand Reclamation plants will be a neccessity for Indian foundries to solve the sand availability and disposal problems which will become more difficult and costly in the coming months.

Wesman have secured a prestigious order from Indian Rare Earths Ltd., Chatrapur for 1 no. 10 TPH Garnet Drying System, with total handling equipment and instrumentation, for their Mineral Separation Plant at Orissa Sand Complex. The charge material is Garnet obtained from the sea beach. Garnet with 8 - 10% moisture will be fed to the Fluidized Bed Dryer by a Screw Feeder. The dried material with 0.5% moisture will be discharged in the Electro-magnetic Vibratory Feeder, which, in turn, will feed the Garnet in to their existing system for further processing.This is a complete turn-key contract with full responsibility of design-engineering, supply, installation-commissioning including electrical installation and civil work. WESMAN has already supplied number of dryers in various mineral processing units like V.V.Minerals, Industrial Minerals, Beach Mineral Company, Indian Ocean Garnets, Transworld Garnet. Recently 2 nos. identical 5 TPH Capacity Fluidized Bed Drying System for Zircon & Siliminite have been supplied, erected and is being commissioned at Kerala Minerals & Metals Ltd., Kollam. By bagging this order under stiff competition from other national and international players, Wesman has added another feather in their Cap and the successful execution of this contract will definitely establish WESMAN’s strong foothold in the fast growing mineral industries.
