Furnace for Handling Variety of Returns
October 7, 2015
StrikoWestofen GmbH, Gummersbach, Germany, has developed the BigStruc, a melting system for returns with a self-sealing lift swing door and near-stoichiometric combustion.
The furnace can melt bulky cast parts in addition to thin-walled parts and small returns. In the BigStruc, the cast parts are preheated without direct exposure to flames and rapidly melted at the foot of the shaft. The molten metal then flows directly from the melting bridge into the holding bath, where it is heated to the desired temperature.
