Short summary
This work deals with process monitoring. In particular, the process of used-sand regeneration is monitored with the aid of impedance spectroscopy and can be controlled in the future with the measurement data obtained in this way. This results in the following aspects: a consistently high quality of the process material is realized by a controlled process. At the same time, energy consumption is minimized. The result is a process that is both more resource-efficient and more economical.
