In addition to the 10 different types of Rotary Foundry Equipment patented and manufactured by DIDION, they also offer Sand & Casting Cooling Drums. These machines perform both sand and casting cooling in one efficient step. The internal configuration blends, mixes, and cools the sand. Having consistent return sand in both temperature and moisture reduces scrap and cleaning costs. Easy to handle cool castings speeds production time and saves floor space. The efficient design has the lowest operating cost compared to other cooler manufacturers.
DIDION enhanced and upgraded the design of these style drums by incorporating their Rotary expertise with a bridge-type center base frame assembly. This allows for precise laser alignment of the main support bearings to eliminate thrust loads and minimize wear. The trunnion wheels are fixed to eliminate skewing and premature wear. The Drive Package attaches to the Bridge Frame for easy alignment of the Drum and Drive Sprockets, which have all been upgraded for longer life.
