A New Approach to ShaftMelter Design
There are several aspects of ShaftMelter design that have always suffered from a compromise between cost and efficiency and these have now been addressed in some new designs.
A new approach to door design
Hydraulic positive open and close
Double seals on cleaning doors
Rope seal replaceable from outside
Optional sideways angled cleaning doors
Charge and exhaust operation
Hydraulic or electro-mechanical operation
avoids the problems associated with broken, twisted and frayed cables
charge door, baffle, service platform
High quality refractory linings
High quality castables specified according to service environments
Safety layers and high insulating properties for maximum efficiency an
Lowest practical skin temperatures
Flexible designs based on proven concepts
Modulating holding burner maintains temperature without disturbing metal surface and creating dross
