Non Ferrous Metal Recycling: Reverberatory Melting/Holding Furnaces

By Furnace Engineering

Furnace Engineering has been designing and contructing large numbers of Aluminium Reverberatory Melting/Holding Furnaces in Australia, NZ and SE Asia in the last three decades. 

Key features:

  • Reduced energy consumption and environmental design.
  • A wide range of aluminium holding capacities. 
  • Tilting or stationary with tap-out mechanism. 
  • Oil, Gas fuel fired combustion system.
  • Positive pressure control.
  • From simple PLC to complex computer control systems.
  • Charging door for dry or preheated materials.

Refractory Design

Robust & strong to withstand the chamber environment of high temperatures, mechanical impact from charging & cleaning and resist corundum build up minimised to reduce energy consumption.

Door Sealing

An essential component for maintaining pressure and reducing cold air into the furnace.

Pressure Control

Ensures that the furnace chamber is held at an optimal pressure at all times.

Combustion System

Recuperative burners, Regenerative burners or Oxy/Fuel burners are the most efficient combustion technology used today.

Control Systems

Data gathering and analysing devices to optimise the furnace operation and 
ensuring work safety.


The Furnace Engineering Reverberatory Melting/Holding Furnace design and 
construction include metal stirring system, side wells & liquid metal filling ports.
