Essentially designed to exploit the advantages of gas melting and electric holding, the Dual Energy Bale-Out Furnace can operate with both gas and electric energy inputs automatically with respect to temperature. Alternatively, the furnace will operate solely on gas or electricity according to the source
selected. Should gas heating fail, electric heating is automatically selected. The combination of radiant heat transfer and the use of advanced insulating materials provides a melting and holding furnace of exceptional efficiency and comfortable working conditions.
Twelve refractory, radiant heater panels are arranged around the crucible and extend to the full depth of the furnace chamber. The formation consists of six gas and six electric radiant panels. Uniquely designed panels efficiently convert gas energy to radiant energy when this heat source is selected. The
self-supporting design allows ease of removal. Multi-strand element tails and cool stud terminals enable electric heater changes to be made in less than 10 minutes without removing the crucible.

KEY FEATURES :-
The furnace is equipped with an advanced self-contained nozzle mix gas burner. This reliable on/off industrial grade burner utilises an ultra-violet detector to detect and monitor the quality of combustion.
Fully modulating burner also available for proportional gas heating.
• Circuit breaker for isolation and protection
• Earth leakage detection for operational safety and personnel protection
• Crucible and heater hour meters
• Programmable time clock switching
• Mimic display for rapid diagnostics
The element panels are depicted on a diagram and ultra bright LEDs are lit
when any electric panel is drawing the required current. Metal temperature
control may be either from an adjustable or fixed pyrometer.
The programmable controller will maintain the metal temperature within very close limits by automatic adjustment to heat input, whether melting or holding. The digital display shows both the required and current metal temperature.
This energy conservation feature enables a lower holding
temperature to be automatically selected during periods of non
A dedicated real-time/date clock can be programmed to select
reduced temperature and to return to operational temperature
when required. Similarly, the real-time clock can be
programmed to start up and shut down the furnace at preset
times and dates.
THERMOCOUPLE FAILURE PROTECTION (electric hold)
If the thermocouple sensor fails, this feature provides a
programmed level of output power. Typically set to 10–30%,
the time proportioning power control provides sufficient
heat output power to maintain an aluminium charge within
an acceptable temperature range.
The furnace is equipped with a "policeman" control.
This feature is designed to prevent overheating of the furnace
refractories and radiant panels, thus avoiding reduction of their
A variety of metal temperature pyrometry can be specified. This
includes floating or fixed immersion types and thermocouples
housed within the crucible for holding applications.
