2. After preparation of cores, cores on the core plates are sent for what?
a) Pressurizing
b) Baking
c) Increasing the volume
d) Decreasing the volume

Explanation: Baking is a process that takes place after quite a lot of preliminary operations. After the cores are prepared, the cores are then placed on the plates and moved forward for baking.

3. What does the following figure represent?

a) Core plate
b) Core drier
c) Core oxidizer

4. Cores are baked up to what temperature?
a) 600°F
b) 650°F
c) 700°F
d) 750°F

Explanation: Before the beginning of the process, the cores need to be taken to a decently good amount of temperature by preheating them. While baking the cores, the cores are taken up to a temperature as high as 650°F.

5. The moisture of the core is taken off during baking at what temperature?
a) 197°F
b) 212°F
c) 278°F
d) 304°F

Explanation: None.

6. Core oil and binders change their chemical properties at what temperature?
a) 200°F – 300°F
b) 300°F – 400°F
c) 400°F – 500°F
d) 500°F – 600°F

Explanation: Whenever any material is heated to a temperature high for its properties, there is a change in its chemical and physical aspects seen. Core oils and organic binders used in backing the core, change their physical properties at 400°F – 500°F.

7. What does an unbacked core generate?
a) Greenhouse gases
b) Mold gases
c) Mold liquids
d) Ultraviolet rays

Explanation: An unbacked core causes to generate an excessive amount of mold gases which then produce blowholes in the castings.

a) True
b) False

10. Which of the following type of air is circulated over rack type core oven?
a) Cool air
b) Hot air
c) Compressed air
d) Odourless air
