The steel furnace casting is lined to suit the application with either Morganite radiant panels backed by premium grade insulation or, for higher temperature applications, high alumina brick linings.
LIP AXIS POURING
Lip axis pouring is achieved by tilting the furnace by means of twin hydraulic rams. The pouring rate is easily controlled, allowing a transfer ladle to be kept in one position. For convenience. When pouring accuracy is not required, a bolt-on spout extension is available.
- 213-1496 kg Aluminium
- 600-2700 kg Copper Base Alloys
Furnaces with automatic, fully- modulating burners are supplied with a fixed pyrometer assembly, which is connected to the control system, to provide metal temperature control. Other control systems are also available.
The furnace is supplied assembled and only requires bolting down on a suitable concrete floor and connection to fuel and electricity sources. For zinc and aluminium melting, MKV Furnaces up to BT700 furnaces can be fitted with a spilt metal tray. Otherwise, spilit-metal pits should be provided.
Above data based on optimum foundry conditions. For normal foundry operations a performance of 90% of therse rating is typical.
Data for zinc and copper- based alloys available upon request.
For aluminium and zinc (high temperature nozzle mix gas burners are used for copper- based alloys). Oil burners are also available.
- Fully- Modulating Burners
- Burner Tilts with Furnace
- Radiant Panels
- Crucible and Burner Hour Meters
- Seven Day Time Clock
- Proportional (PID) Control
For aluminum and zinc alloy applications lined with a high alumina, gas radiant panel hot face, backed with a highly efficient insulation. The system is particularly beneficial in gasfired applications, providing an effective radiating surface from the non- luminous productions of combustion.
For copper based alloy applications high grade alumina brick to the hot face with graded insulation thereafter.
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 lifespan.
A variety of metal temperature pyrometry can be specified. This includes adjustable or fixed immersion types and thermocouples housed within the crucible for holding applications.
Spilit metal detection, low metal temperature alarm, in-range indicating beacons and metal temperature overshoot control.
