Lindberg/MPH Ships Gas Fired Zinc Melting and Holding Furnace to Die Casting Industry

Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of a gas fired melting and holding furnace. The furnace incorporates seven (7) immersion tubes, each with its own burner and ratio regulator control.

The maximum temperature rating for this furnace is 850°F. The bath capacity is 45,000 lbs. of molten zinc. The system is rated at 2,300,000 BTU/hr. The furnace temperature controller includes a PID loop and LED display. The furnace includes an adjacent pump well with stainless steel weir to isolate dross. A splash shield was added to protect combustion piping from molten metal contact. The 180°F exhaust deflector improves efficiency and reduces noise.

“The design of this system facilitates energy efficient melting and holding of the zinc and precise temperature control. Lindberg/MPH also supplied control and power wiring.” – Andrew Paul

Unique features of this Lindberg/MPH furnace include:

  • Individually operable spark ignited burners with flame rod flame safety

  • Each burner has its own gas/air ratio regulator assuring the correct air and gas mixture for dependable ignition and efficient combustion

  • On-off firing allows for a wide input range virtually eliminating temperature creep

  • Adjacent pump well with stainless steel weir

  • Temperature and overtemperature control

  • Drain tap for complete draining of the furnace

  • Splash shield

  • Exhaust deflectors
