Lindberg/MPH Ships Aluminum Melting and Holding Furnace

Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of an Aluminum Melting and Holding Furnace. The melting and holding furnace was designed with an aluminum melt rate of 3,000 lbs per hour and the capacity to hold up to 40,000 lbs of aluminum.

The aluminum melting and holding furnace will be loaded with aluminum across a preheat hearth. prior to being pushed into the molten aluminum bath. An exterior discharge well and working tap are included with the furnace as a means of aluminum removal. The equipment also features a circulation well for improved temperature and alloy uniformity.

This custom melting and holding furnace will be in the production of aluminum powder. Temperature of the metal is controlled through digital temperature controllers. Flue gases are controlled with a mechanical flue damper, reducing flue losses during low-fire operation. A totalizing gas meter was also included to accurately measure gas usage.

“The Lindberg/MPH engineering team worked closely with the customer on a custom design that met their application requirements. A factory trained technician supervised the installation of this custom furnace and performed the initial start-up to ensure that everything went smoothly.” ~Andrew Paul, Sales Representative
