Product Details

Lindberg/MPH provides robust custom equipment, including the R Series crucible furnaces. These electric resistance crucible furnaces can be adapted for a multitude of metals and built to incorporate special voltages, frequencies and temperatures.

Lindberg/MPH’s crucible furnaces provide efficient solutions for die as well as permanent mold and sand casting of aluminum, zinc, magnesium, lead and other lower temperature melting metals. Rod-type nickelchrome elements are installed in the walls of these furnaces, allowing heat to be radiated to the container, melting the metal within. The SCR control handles the power input through use of a pyrometer and a thermocouple assembly.
