Electric Resistance Furnace for Aluminum
February 23, 2015
The Model DC-950 electric resistance crucible-type aluminum melting furnace from Rayteq LLC, Healdsburg, Calif., has a melting rate of 1,000 lbs./hour and a capacity of more than two tons.
It is designed for high volume structural and conventional diecasting, permanent mold and sand casting operations. The Model DC-950 melts directly at the machine, meaning central melters, delivery ladles and holding furnaces are unnecessary. The furnace’s 81-sq.-in. footprint occupies minimal floorspace. Rayteq’s digital/analog Furnace Director proportional power controls can improve temperature control, and a non-contact molten metal level sensor paces either manual or mechanized ingot addition to blunt temperature spikes.
