Lindberg/MPH Ships Tilting Melting Furnace To Aluminum Die Caster

Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of an aluminum central melting, tilting reverberatory furnace to an die cast supplier of the transportation, industrial, and leisure markets. The melting furnace will be used to melt aluminum used in the die cast process.

The maximum recommended metal temperature for this tilting furnace is 1,500°F. The furnace is loaded with aluminum ingot, T-bars, and scrap which are then melted with natural gas fired burners and held for pouring. The furnace is mounted on a cradle to tilt and pour the molten aluminum through an insulated trough. The aluminum melt rate is 2,000 lbs per hour.

This furnace will be capable of delivering molten aluminum to a transfer trough without needing auxiliary pumping equipment. Metal and chamber temperature is controlled through digital temperature controllers that have Ethernet capability to connect to customer’s network. Flue gases and internal temperature are controlled with a modulating flue damper. A service technician provided by Lindberg/MPH will perform supervision during the melting furnace installation and perform start-up training.

Unique features of this Lindberg/MPH furnace include:

  • Rugged steel plate furnace construction

  • High alumina castable lining

  • Hydraulic tilting cradle assembly

  • Two charge doors located on opposites side of equipment

  • Flue damper

  • Insulated molten metal transfer trough

  • Work and drain taps

  • Stand alone control panel

  • Temperature controllers with network capabilities
