The MK V Gas Fired Lip Axis Pouring Recuperative Basin Tilting Furnace suitable for temperatures up to 850ºc, provides the maximum economy in energy costs so far, through the use of radiant panel technology, efficient low thermal mass materials in the lining and recuperation.
By recycling part of the waste energy from the exhaust products, typically 35% can be saved and can be as high as 50% over some conventional, side exhaust brick lined furnaces.
Radiation losses from the metal are minimised by the use of a well insulated swing aside cover that can cover the crucible when no charging is required.
The radiant panels and lining give excellent melting performance from the compact high efficiency burner. The burner also facilitates improved internal heat circulation and transfer through convection, producing a more even heat distribution around the crucible enhancing crucible life.
The insulation materials used in the furnace lining result in low casing temperatures, provide comfortable and safe working conditions.
Working conditions are also optimised by very low noise emissions, as the exhaust recuperator also acts as an effective silencer.
In addition to reduced carbon dioxide emissions through lowered heat input the advanced burner technology also minimises Nitrous Oxides and Carbon monoxide, important to health and the environment.
