- Carriages automate furnace charge feeders, allowing them to index from scrap loading area to furnace.
- Contact detectors mounted around the carriage frame safely stop units if something is in the carriage path.
- Integrated safety alarms and lights alert workers to carriage movement.
- Easily integrated into control system for seamless process operations.
- Separation of sand, media, and tramp metal is done outside the rotating assembly on a GK vibratory processor, eliminating rotating mass and wear to the drum body.
- GK fabricated liners are easier and safer to replace, and cost up to 75% less than cast grid systems.
- Patent-pending liner system eliminates compression rings, heavy cast liners, and excessive maintenance costs.
- Drum shell is not a wear item, saving you considerable maintenance funds and headaches.
- Drums use easy to source commercially available components.
- Available in standard and custom sizes to match your process design and throughput.

SPIRA-FLOW™ Spiral Conveyors
The Alum-A-Filter provides continuous automatic metal filtration in many non-ferrous casting operations. The machine provides this filtration by indexing a continuous belt of mesh fabric between a molten metal receiving basin and a direct pouring basin. Molten metal is poured into the pouring basin, flows through the filtering screen, and into the receiving basin. Once out if the receiving basin, the metal flows directly into the shot tube of a die casting machine or pouring basin of a permanent mold machine. The process can even be customized for automatic green sand or no-bake molding operations with fixed sprue position pouring. This process effectively removes a high percentage of slag, dross, and other defect causing impurities.

The Palmer B-Series Batch Mixers are specifically designed with the foundry sand user in mind. The integration of foundry toughness and simplicity of design makes these mixers the hardest working, longest lasting batch mixers on the market. With capacities from 100 to 1000 pounds per batch, these machines can be sized to fit nearly any batch-mixing requirement. Mixing efficiency is developed through the use specialized, variable pitch mixing blade assembly, coupled with the use of a variable frequency drive (VFD), allowing the user to custom develop the best fit of intensity, speed, and time for their particular core material.
B-Series Batch Mixer
The Palmer Bulk Transfer System (BTS) draws on Palmer’s decades of pumping, metering and storage of a variety of difficult-to-handle-and-store chemicals, especially those associated with chemically bonded sand molding systems. Safety is a major concern at all times, but proper handling is especially critical with flammable solvent bearing chemicals.
Bulk Transfer System (BTS)
- High Productivity
- Works with all air setting and cold box binder systems
- Simple, Rugged Design
- Ideal for small to mid-sized jobbing foundries
- Blow cores and mold with the same machine with swivel mixer
- Fill timer for control of any continuous or batch mixer
- Warning timer and buzzer for advance notice of work time expiration
- 120V Operation
- Spare parts are available from full service industrial supply houses or Palmer inventory.
Coremaker™ Core Blower
If your manufacturing processes create dust or other particulates, baghouse dust collectors or a baghouse dust collection system may be the best solution for removal of these potential airborne hazards. IVI baghouses are long-lasting, and often their maintenance and operational costs are more affordable than alternative air ventilation systems. IVI designs and manufactures each baghouse dust collection system to fit individual air ventilation needs, taking into consideration the customer’s needs, including regulatory discharge rates, particulate composition, explosion protection, size and type of facility, and air-to-cloth ratios. IVI excels in custom baghouse dust collector design and can provide baghouse system maintenance post-installation.
If your company operations produce dry particle or smoke emissions, dust collection systems, such as a cartridge dust collector, may be your best solution to air filtration and air quality control. IVI, Inc. has the ability to design, build and install the exact system to meet your specifications, saving you time and resources long-term.
Cartridge Dust Collectors
Many industries require specialized air quality control and ventilation when dealing with noxious fumes that are potentially harmful to employees and the environment. These hazardous airborne particles (HAPS) require different ventilation solutions, such as scrubbers and fume hoods. IVI, Inc. designs, manufactures and installs custom fume collection systems and close-capture hoods to specification, ensuring regulatory compliance and safety for your employees.
Close-Capture Hoods and Fume Collectors
An efficient and custom-engineered dust collection system can help your company improve air quality and reduce exposure to hazardous particles, random releases of dust into the air, fire and explosion, productivity decline, and difficulty maintaining a clean work environment. While “standard” dust collection systems can be purchased pre-fabricated, IVI’s systems are custom-engineered to ensure air filtration is its most efficient; producing long-term cost savings and better air quality.
Dust Collection Systems
As a full-service design, build and install contractor, IVI, Inc. has the ability to create a customized, industrial ductwork infrastructure to aid in the movement of air. Ducts carry airborne contaminants; to do this effectively, there should be as little resistance in the form of turbulence or friction as possible. Air moving too slowly through the system will cause dusts to settle and eventual clogging. Air moving too fast is wasteful of power, can create noise problems and may cause excessive abrasion if dusts are being exhausted.
