Additional System Notes
- Sand Storage Tanks – Tanks are to be
filled remote of the car from primary sand storage silos. All sand
conditioning needs to be performed prior to filling of the tanks. This
includes heating, cooling and classification.
- Resin Storage Tanks – Refilling of the
on-board resin storage tanks to be determined as required. Generally,
they are gravity filled via either tote tank or from bulk resin supply.
Note, for Furan resin system users, it is required to use mutually
exclusive hose connections to prevent the direct mixing of resin and
- Track – Cost of track to be determined
at time of order and final design. Generally, grade level track is used
to eliminate subterranean cleaning. Standard 90# ASCE track should be
used. Quantity of wheels to be used is based on final mobile car weight.
Rail and its installation can be purchased by customer for economy.
