Dry Hearth (Gas, Oil or Propane) Furnaces
We design Dry Hearth furnaces to melt aluminum ingot and large billet; no gassing or contamination by the lining means that metal purity remains high. Impurities and the oxide skin stay on the hearth as only molten aluminum enters the hold zone.
- Low fuel consumption – a modest 2.0 CF of gas per pound (504 kcal/0.4536 kg) of melted aluminum, thanks to the highly efficient radiant roof; this number drops even further with high momentum burners. A two-zone control offers the closest temperature control possible.
- Easy to Clean – charge and clean-out doors are tangent with the side walls for quick cleaning access. A double hinged or full width clean-out door provides easy and complete access to the hold zone.
This versatile furnace meets the needs of a variety of metal casters, high and low pressure die casters, and permanent mold, sand, investment and lost foam foundries around the world.
