Holding Furnaces To Meet All Requirements

A wide range of products for holding aluminium are available. These are characterized by low energy consumption, a long service life and low wear. Aluminium is held at a constant temperature using the StrikoMelter model WH - T, which is designed for holding volumes of up to 25,000 kg, and larger models, for example for applications in the casthouse.

For holding smaller quantities of aluminium in relatively small foundries or when the alloy is changed frequently, electric or gas-fired crucible furnaces are used. Crucible furnaces are built in tilting and stationary versions.
