This work deals with the impedimetric monitoring of used-sand regeneration in the foundry industry. During the regeneration of used sand, a quartz sand similar to new sand is produced from already used molding and core sand, which especially serves to produce new cores. We explore whether the regeneration progress can be assessed in situ based on measured impedance spectra and their features. The impedances of plate capacitors filled with different typical used-sand mixtures, consisting of quartz sand, coal dust, and bentonite, were repeatedly measured in a frequency range from 500 Hz to 1 MHz. The reproducibility of the measurements proved to be sufficient for practical applications. The mean impedances were plotted in Nyquist diagrams. From these plots, systematic impedance–composition correlations could be determined for two of the three component systems. Conclusions about the regeneration state could be drawn from the impedance curves by introducing various features. These were the median, the mean, and the standard deviation of the frequency-dependent resistance and reactance. With these indicators, it was then possible to establish one-to-one relations between the material composition of the molding materials and the impedance measurement. In field measurements on regenerated used sands, this observation was confirmed, and the regeneration progress was observed on the basis of the impedimetrically determined characteristic data.
