Two Melting and Holding Furnaces to a Leader in the Automotive Industry

Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of two gas fired, cast iron pot furnaces to a leader in the automotive design and manufacturing industry. The two pot furnaces will be used for melting and holding Kirksite, an alloy of Aluminum and Zinc. Cast iron pots were also supplied as accessories to the pot furnaces. These rugged cast iron pots are designed for years of operation.

One of the industrial furnaces has a melting rate of 660 lbs per hour and a holding capacity of 2,000 lbs. The other pot furnace has a melting rate of 10,000 lbs per hour and a holding capacity of 30,000 lbs. The supply of the two pot furnaces with vastly different sizes allows the customer the flexibility of small or large batch melting. Both furnaces are castable lined and include flue and slag port doors. They are delivered complete with a package burner and NFPA compliant gas train.  

“The sizes of these two furnaces provided the customer with the flexibility to effectively run both small and large batch melting. This flexibility allows the customer to efficiently run their production process.” Andrew Paul, Sales Engineer
