Gas-Fired Immersion Tube Zinc Melting Furnace

Gas-Fired Immersion Tube Zinc Melting Furnace

Product Details

The most productive way to utilize heat is to apply it inside the mass. This zinc melting furnace provides fast temperature response, without danger of overrun, and fast recovery. The accessibility provided by the large surface area makes charging easy. An optional charging cradle allows for the charging of on-spec or master alloy and special high grade sows. Capacity ranges from 13,000 lbs to 373,600 lbs, and melt rates from 2,666 lbs/hr to 16,250 lbs/hr. The BTUs/lb to melt is half that of a pot-type furnace at only 250 BTUs/lb. There is no iron pickup because there is no pot, so you maintain alloy integrity. One unit can replace several pot furnaces.

Immersion heated melting furnaces provide the most efficient and inexpensive method of melting zinc to maintain the alloy integrity by eliminating iron pickup from the use of pots. One unit can replace several pot furnaces as well as dramatically reduce the number of BTUs required per lb to melt the zinc or lead. Available in sizes for small die casters to over 300,000 lbs.
