Shell Room Equipment

Primary Slurry Mixer

Our primary slurry mixers are used to formulate and thoroughly mix shell room investment slurry. The horizontal barrel design is preferred for primary slurry mixing as it can subject the slurry to continuous mixing action without any heat build-up. The single drum has capacities of up to 600 kg of slurry depending on the material density.

Secondary Slurry Mixer

Our shell room secondary slurry mixer is a simple, single vertical conical drum provided with a retractable, variable  speed mixing blade. The blade design ensures hi-shearing forces to ensure sufficient agitation within the slurry. The single drum can accommodate up to 600 kg at 75% usable volume of the vessel. 

Slurry Transfer Pump

Our portable slurry transfer pumps are used to directly pump prepared slurry to the slurry storage tanks or to the dipping tanks within the shell room. This mobile pump can be used to transfer slurries of different compositions to different tanks with intermittent washes around your facility.

Slurry Pots

Our shell room dipping pots are a rotating drum type tank that rotates against a fixed baffle located within the inner periphery of the tank. The tank comes with a removable polypropylene lining. Standard slurry pots are available in diameters of 60, 75, 100, 120, 150 and 180 cm

Fluidised Beds

Our fluidised beds provide a consistent uniform coating and high stucco efficiency. The fluidising beds have a dust suction ring to ensure optimised dust removal during their operation. Standard fluidised beds are available in 60, 100 and 120 cm diameters.

Rain Sander

Our rotary rain sanders produce a uniform and consistent sand rain in which the slurry dipped wax cluster is manipulated to obtain a uniform coating of the refractory material. Our system allows uniform rain with minimum sand consumption, vibration and little to no spillage of refractory materials. Standard rotary rain sanders are available in 100 and 180 cm diameters.

Fully Intergrated Shell Room

We offer a fully integrated shell room solutions that combines automation technology, high quality equipment and computer-based process supervision. Every integrated shell system is bespoke based on your individual needs.

Conveyor Line

Our conveyor line is an accumulative and release type hanging system. The linear loading limit on each line is more than 5 tons. If floor space is a concern then we also supply multi-level conveyor systems. All of our conveyor systems can be modified to suit your product, process and facility space requirements.

Mould Hanger

Our investment cast mould hanging, and drying system is manufactured using stainless steel, encompassing a multi-layer design that increases space utilization. The length of the line and the number of hanging rods can be customised according to your requirements.
