The Most Widely Recognized Name in Aluminum Stack Melting

High Efficiency Aluminum Melting

Ingot and scrap are charged into the stack section of the furnace. Charge materials are preheated by utilizing the flue gases directed through the stack. Heat recovery and energy savings are achieved by utilizing this method of preheating. The melt burner at the bottom of the stack completes the melting process. The molten aluminum flows into the bath section, where it is held at the desired metal temperature. The aluminum is then dipped, tapped or pumped out of the standard well section on the side of the holding bath section.
