Push-Out Furnaces are one option in removable crucible furnaces and have a variety of configurations. They provide nonferrous and precious metal casters with clean, compact and highly productive crucible melting systems. When designed to have multiple crucible openings your production can be increased drastically with a near 100 percent power utilization.
Push-Out Furnaces are available in a Double Push-out Furnace configuration. With this configuration, when the first crucible is molten and ready for pouring, power is transferred to the second coil and the first crucible is then raised for removal. Because power is transferred in just seconds by means of a safety-interlocked, two-position switch, throughput is increased and thousands of additional castings per year can be obtained. Hydraulic cylinders raise crucibles using minimal pressure. Their refractory overflow receptacles are designed to contain spills for added safety and ease of maintenance. Coils are lined with a heavy refractory cement to guard against spillage and to reduce heat losses.
