melting furnace / pit / induction
# Acutrak® delivers energy directly to the crucible and molten metal,
making the Acutrak® more efficient than any furnace on the market today.
# Furnace energy losses are so low that water cooling systems have become unnecessary.
All components are air-cooled.
# The automatic control system raises the metal temperature to the set point, automatically reducing to hold power. Holding energy cost is just pennies per hour.
# Applies electrical energy directly into the crucible and molten metal.
High power density (150 kW/ton) assures quick melting.
# Applies electrical energy directly into the crucible and molten metal,
eliminating the need for fragile electrical filaments and fuel burners.
# Clean induction technology guarantees metal of exceptional purity and at the correct temperature. Metal loss is minimal.
# Furnaces are compact and require minimal effort to install: Place - Connect - Run.
# The metal is heated evenly and to precise temperature automatically with minimal overshoot.
# The rugged construction of Acutrak® assures high reliability. A crucible with molten metal is the only hot component in the entire system.
# Acutrak® offers large melt diameter for easy ladling and charging.
