The calcine process applies heat (above 1400F) to the sand long enough to "dead burn" the sand's clay component, breaking its adhesion so clay can be separated from the sand grains.
These systems do not reach a temperature high enough to calcine the clay used with green sand and, therefore, are only suitable for organically bonded sands.
In all cases, the goal was to be able to treat the sand at the higher temperatures 1300-1600C or 2372-2912F) required to calcine or kill the clay in the clay-bonded sand.
