TILTING ROTARY FURNACES
The high performance tilting rotary furnace range from Melting Solutions produce the most effective melting furnace technology available in the market for processing mixed scrap and drosses. It is able to process many types of scrap including:
The tilting rotary furnace range combines advanced melting technology, process control and high-quality engineering. It is aimed primarily at recycling applications. The advantages and flexibility of the tilting rotary furnace continues to deliver savings and efficiencies throughout the aluminium processing industry.
It delivers outstanding energy savings and increases productivity as a bulk melter for die-casting applications. For melting mixed, contaminated scrap including oxidised materials such as dross, the combination of low energy, high metal recovery and flexibility of feedstock, have shown the tilting rotary furnace to be a class leader.
Comparing the tilting rotary furnace range to other traditional rotary and fuel-fired reverberatory furnaces show significant savings:
Advantages of our Tilting Rotary Furnaces:
The latest tilting rotary furnaces also deliver savings and efficiencies by using a proven innovative design backed by in-depth process knowledge. They are offered with the following:
All of the furnace controls and functions are controlled using the latest PLC and SCADA software. These are then communicated to the operator by a full size color HMI (Human Machine Interface) monitor. SCADA control is offered as an option. The data communicated to the central PLC from the various furnace sensors is displayed and stored. Data includes energy consumption, process temperatures and melt results etc. These are then available to print and transmit via ethernet or wireless applications to remote locations. The tilt rotary range is available in a number of standard capacities from 1 – 23 ton.
Melting Solutions can supply a range of sidewell melting furnaces in capacities from 10t to 100t.
The principle of the sidewell furnace is well proven. It utilises a metal circulation pump which draws hot metal from the main heating chamber into an open or closed well on the side of the furnace. Scrap can be loaded into the sidewell or through a submergence system, giving high recovery. Using this technology means turnings and foils, which would be uneconomic to process in a conventional furnace, can now be used.
In some cases, for example with a Tilting Rotary Furnace, the cycle time is no more than 3 hours, so very often two holding furnaces are used.
The efficient charging of the furnace is one of the most important considerations in creating a modern and efficient melting plant.
Melting Solutions lead the industry in effective charging and handling equipment. We supply a range of charging machines from 1 – 10m3 hopper capacity rated from 1T – 6T per charge and above.
Using powerful vibratory motors, a wide range of scrap can be rapidly charged into the furnace at a nominal 1T/minute. With dense and shredded scrap this charging rate is often much faster.
Our machines are heavy duty for years of trouble-free service. We match the correct capacity machine for your furnace scrap characteristics. The machines are fully integrated into the plant control. We can include energy chains and machines that have long travel for crane loading.
Operations by remote controls are also available to optimise productivity.
