Lindberg/MPH Ships Energy Efficient Stack-Type Aluminum Melting and Holding Furnace

Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of a gas fired aluminum stack melting and holding furnace to a manufacturer of recreational vehicles. The equipment provides additional melting capacity and efficiency for a new die casting machine installation. This furnace is an integral part of a fully automated cell. 

Estimated melt rate is 1500 lbs. per hour. This furnace features a gondola system that weighs each load and automatically lifts and dumps the material down the stack for melting. The melt zone consists of a sloped charging stack which helps to minimize impact damage from ingots. The two doors on adjacent sides allow for easy access to the furnace melting chamber for cleaning. The laser charge stack level control monitors material level in the stack for maximum efficiency. A laser safety metal level control shuts down the melting zone if the metal overfills the holding chamber.

“The customer requested a furnace integrated within a fully automated casting cell that is energy efficient with state of the art process control. For that reason, this furnace is equipped with an advanced process controller which provides temperature control, charging control, data logging and alarm history.” -Andrew Paul, Sales Engineer

Unique features of this Lindberg/MPH aluminum stack melting and holding furnace include:

  • Rugged steel plate furnace construction

  • Impact resistant castable lining

  • Two side access cleaning doors

  • Integrated programmable logic process controller

  • Laser charge stack level control

  • Hydraulically actuated cover

  • Discharge Well

  • Automated lift and charge mechanism with load cell

  • Advanced process controller
