Waste sand undone
Patented by Resand, the modular sand reclaimer changes how the world thinks about regenerated sand.
From waste to an asset
Foundries can use sand again and again, reducing the need for virgin sand, a scarce natural resource. The need of new sand is marginal, and the need for sand transportation is also cut down.
Your regenerated sand can be turned from waste into your important asset.
How the modular sand reclaimer works
Modular sand reclaimer takes used sand and processes it through two drums to make it ready to be used again. The used sand is cleaned of binder residues and other impurities with heat treatment. After that the impurities are separated, and the regenerated sand is cooled down for reuse. The reclaimer can clean 2-4 tonnes per hour, making sure there’s always regenerated sand available when you need it.
A proven solution that is better than traditional technologies
The Resand® modular sand reclaimer treats the used sand in a thermo-mechanical regeneration process to be used at the foundry. The process combines elements of high-temperature treatment, mechanical polishing of the sand grains, and dedusting of the cleaned sand.
Sand reclaiming is an important part of sustainable foundry practices and will be increasingly common in the industry. The reclaimer has been proven to be able to regenerate approximately 95% of the used sand.
Quality equal to virgin sand
Thermal regeneration removes binder residues and other impurities making it possible for the regeneration process to improve the quality of the sand.
The regenerated sand has already reached a 95% level of mold strength compared to virgin sand, making regenerated sand one of the few things in the world, where used is as good as new.
Cut down costs long-term
Disposing of sand keeps getting more costly, and tightening regulation makes it challenging. We need to stop the madness in wasting sand.
Our solution: regenerating sand and putting it to use again and again directly at the foundries.
Regenerating used sand can reduce sand related costs by 10-20% on an annual basis. No major investments for equipment. Start saving from day one.
Regenerating used sand is a true climate act in many ways
Foundries could recycle 100% of the waste sand and eventually 95% of the waste sand could be reused (5% losses in the form of dust) - if they just knew how. The Resand® can solve that, but that is not all.
The cumulative emissions reduction potential over 10 years for a single reclaimer is approximately 2.8kt of CO2-equivalent.
When reclaimed sand is put to use, the need for transportation-related emissions cuts down significantly, with approximately 25 kg/CO2/ton of reclaimed sand.Environmental benefits

How does the Resand® process work?
The regeneration process is the result of years of intensive research. The patented process consists of an innovative technology, consisting of a 2-stage rotary kiln in combination with a special process control. The combination of a thermo-mechanical treatment and process control makes extraordinary process results possible.
What do I save by using the Resand® unit?
With the Resand® model customers usually save between 10–20% in sand-related costs compared to the use of virgin sand. In addition, the costly disposal of used sand is no longer necessary. Reclaiming used sand and keeping it in circulation can cut down CO₂ emissions by up to 80%. At the same time, the foundry’s competitiveness increases due to a significantly lower CO₂ footprint of the foundry product and a significantly better evaluation within the CO₂ supplier rating. With the Resand™, your company contributes significantly to the reduction of the CO₂ supply chain.
