Die Casting: Barrel Furnace

By Furnace Engineering

The Tilting Barrel Furnaces is the most cost effective mid-range aluminium bulk melting & holding furnaces for die casters, foundries and re-melters.

Key features:

  • Practical, robust and reliable
  • High thermal efficiency & low running costs
  • Low oxide losses yielding clean metal
  • Easy to operate, charge and pour
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • Wide range of sizes for many applications

The barrel form of brickwork is inherently strong. The clear internal lines while improving performance and durability also reduce maintenance. The fore-hearth design facilitates waste heat recovery and enhances metallurgical conditions.

The hydraulic tilting system enables precise pouring control. The result is clean metal from the heart of the melt.

The furnace is fully assembled and pre-tested at factory. It can be installed easily on any clear, level floorspace and connection to services.

Standard equipment includes full electrics with automatic temperature controls; hydraulic power pack for tilting and door operation; combustion system designed for high heat-transfer efficiency natural gas, LPG, or oil; heavy duty refractory lining including 85% alumina hard burned brick in the molten metal zone, together with back-up and insulating refractories.
