Single Chamber Induction Skull Melting Furnace

Single Chamber Induction Skull Melting Furnace

Consarc offers Induction Skull Melting (ISM) furnaces which is a method of melting metals in a segmented water-cooled copper vessel while under vacuum or controlled atmosphere using an induction coil. Consarc’s single chamber design is for low volume prototype castings and R&D work. Consarc ISM furnaces provide superior chemical and thermal homogenaity when compared to more traditional methods of melting reactive materials such as arc skull casting.
