Originally designed and patented by General Kinematics in the late 70’s, GK’s vibratory quenching conveyors are the original and still the most rugged machine for quenching slag, dross, and castings, and other hot metal and metal by-products.
Vibratory Quenching Conveyors
General Kinematics vibratory quenching conveyors combine a water reservoir within a vibratory feeder to provide you with a clean and effective way to quickly cool castings, or other hot materials. GK vibratory quenching conveyors accept hot material directly, instantly quenching the material.
Vibrating Slag Quenching Conveyors
General Kinematics vibratory slag quenching conveyors quickly cool slag, converting it to popcorn slag that can be resold for beneficial use as a reclaimed material. The molten slag is quenched and cooled in the vibrating slag quenching feeder’s water chamber, then is conveyed out, ready for immediate disposal.
Enhanced performance and recovery can be achieved by using GK’s Dry Slag Cooling Conveyors prior to their vibratory slag quenching conveyors. Using this process, foundry users can eliminate popcorn slag, pans, and apron conveyors. With the GK dry slag system, slag is conveyed and transformed into pancake slag on GK’s patented cooling deck conveyor and can immediately be containerized or can be discharged to a quench tank. Units are available in custom widths and lengths to fit your process.
