Clamshell Door Outperformer

Clamshell Door Outperformer

Product Details

The “Outperformer” Aluminum Melting Furnace can reduce energy consumption by over 50% for melting and holding compared to conventional furnace designs. The use of a curved clamshell-type door and drop arch force hot gasses over the charge area, providing faster melting with less bath capacity. This greatly reduces your cost to both melt and hold. Additionally, it reduces metal loss and heat around the furnace.

Benefits

  • Clamshell door improves efficiency by enclosing the charge well
  • Easy and complete access to the furnace chamber for charging and cleaning
  • Easy cleaning of sidewalls
  • Fast melting proportion to the holding volume
  • Fast melting proportion to the holding volume
  • Greater operator comfort and productivity
  • Less heat around the furnace
  • Long refractory life
  • Relatively quick and easy installation

Features

  • 18.5 BTU/lb at idle, using 1/3 less gas than competitive units
  • Design greatly improves melt efficiency
  • High turndown—near-flat flame burners prevent flame impingement and minimize melt loss
  • Results in faster melting with less gas usage during both production and non-production
  • Scrap, returns, and ingot melt immediately simply because there is so much available heat
  • Tested at 1127 BTUs/lb at full capacity
  • The clamshell door and drop arch and flue positions force hot gases over the charge area
  • Virtually eliminates the temperature gradient between the charge area and the inside of the furnace

Options

  • Guillotine-style door available for scrap charging
  • Optional preheat hearth for bundles of ingot or sows
