Energy Efficient, Temperature Accurate Crucible Gas Furnaces

A new installation of our crucible gas heated furnaces with their inbuilt digital proportional integral derivative (PID) temperature controllers, allow the molten aluminium pour temperature to be maintained at a constant level to ensure the integrity of the casting.

These furnaces also have an improved environmental and efficiency profile featuring high-grade fire bricks and microporous insulation panels to line the side walls with a graded monolithic lining mixture on the floor. They also use recuperative burners the industrial furnaces offer both environmental and efficiency improvements, by using the exhaust gas heat to pre-heat the combustion air, thus reducing energy consumption by 30 per cent.

In addition, the side walls of the furnaces are lined with high-grade fire bricks and microporous insulation panels, whilst the bottom is lined with a graded monolithic lining mixture, all designed to maximise insulation and minimise energy loss.
