Part Load Furnace Control: The Efficient Energy Solution for Foundries

Part Load Efficiency Control for StrikoMelter

Stop wasting energy and start saving

Is your melting furnace showing high energy consumption values with low utilization?

Many aluminium foundries don’t melt at a 100 % capacity, for example during the start-up phase of a project, maintenance work carried out on the casting machines or when planning future capacity. During this time, the melting furnace often operates at only 30 to 75% of its capacity.

This can lead to several short melting periods within one shift of production. Short melting periods are not very efficient, as the energy-intensive process of liquefying metal is interrupted again and again.

Wouldn’t it be great to achieve optimum energy consumption even at low utilization? With our Part Load Efficiency Control now you can!

The Part Load Efficiency Control combines a continuous melting process with long periods of holding molten metal warm. It automatically optimizes the furnace “melting” and “holding” operating modes in such a way that melting is applied in the most energy efficient way.

By switching to long melting periods, the efficiency of the melting process increases significantly, reducing energy consumption by up to 20%. It also helps you improve labour and process efficiency by increasing the degree of automation in your furnace control.

Unlock a new level of efficiency

The Part Load Efficiency Control can be applied to all StrikoMelter shaft melting furnaces. It can also easily be retrofitted to existing furnaces.

Dream team - the control integrates perfectly with the bath-level laser. The bath-level laser measures the level of the melt in the holding chamber and ensures the increase in efficiency is optimal.
