Ladle or launder
Molten metal can be delivered to the holding furnace via transport ladle, using a dedicated filling pocket, or alternatively using a launder system – ensuring ultimate flexibility to partner technology used.
Constant temperature, consistent quality
Once liquid metal has been received, our aluminium holding furnaces ensure temperatures are maintained to tight tolerances. As well as optimizing melt quality – and therefore the quality of the final aluminium cast product - this also minimizes energy wastage that can result from correcting heat fluctuations.
These benefits can also be achieved if re-alloying is required. In this instance a specially designed pre-heating ramp can be added to warm or quickly melt materials before they reach the aluminium melt bath. More about the Aluminium Holding Furnace with Melting Ramp.
Tap, tilt or pump
Our aluminium holding furnaces ensure your casting lines always have the right amount of molten metal, delivered in a way which suits your specific needs. With multiple tapping options, a tilting furnace variation, or an external pump pocket (for transfer pump metal removal), whichever way you choose to feed your line, do so with complete confidence.
