Temporary Holding Pots can be used for planned and unplanned events. These consist of a steel shell wrapped in a thermal blanket and air-cooled cables.
Temporary Holding Pots are designed to quickly and easily facilitate pumping of the molten metal out of the main pot and keep it molten so that it can then be pumped back into the main pot. A small induction power supply unit provides the energy required to maintain the molten metal bath at temperature. They are designed for short-term holding, such as during an inductor change, or other maintenance requirements.
