A wood or metal form slipped over a mold made in a snap or slip flask, to support the four sides of the mold during pouring. Jackets and mold weights are shifted from one row of molds to another during the pouring period. See Flask.
Usually an upright structural member forming the side of an opening in a refractory or furnace wall.
A brick modified so one corner is rounded.
Packing sand in a mold by raising and dropping on a table the sand, pattern, and flask. Jolt squeezers, jarring machines, and jolt rammers are machines using this principle. See Jolt Ramming, Jolt Squeezer Machine, Jolt Machine.
A molding machine that packs the sand by jarring. See Jar Ramming.
Jersey Fireclay Brick
Highly siliceous clay brick, semisilica brick.
A high velocity water jet directed into the throat of a venture section of a cupola to separate out particulates in air pollution control.

Packing sand in a mold by raising and dropping the sand, pattern, and flask on a table. Jolt squeezers, jarring machines, and jolt rammers are all machines that use this method.
A combination machine that employs a jolt action followed by a squeezing action to compact the sand around the pattern. See Jar Ramming.
