Shop for crucible furnace from top Chinese wholesalers on Alibaba.com. Industrial furnaces are used to melt scrap metals and create different types of steel from iron. Most machines are used to melt iron, aluminum, and copper. Smaller machines are used to melt gold, silver, platinum, and copper. Large products can weigh up to 20 tons and use between 380v and 950v power input. Their working power is between 180kw to 2,000kw. Large capacitor banks are used to stabilize the current before directing it to the crucible furnace. These capacitors are well insulated to protect them from spilling water. Safety systems are built into the machines. For instance, they have circuit breakers, which automatically shut down the machine in case of any fault.
Melting is done using either an open furnace or an enclosed one. Some require two pots, one for melting and the other for transporting the molted metal to where it’s needed. Most wholesale crucible furnace provide temperatures between 2,100 to 1,750 degrees Celsius, which is enough to melt most metals. Melting speed can fall within 40 to 60 minutes depending on the type of metal and the machine used. Melting pots are capable of tilting up to 95 degrees, which is enough to pour all the molten metal out of the pot. Each furnace has a water-cooling system that helps to cool hot metal. A PLC system is used to operate the crucible furnace.
Most of these crucible furnace products use the electrical induction systems to provide melting heat. Plus, they make use of hydraulic pressure systems to provide tilting force to the furnace pot.
