Dry Hearth Melting Furnaces

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper outlines various aluminium melting furnaces arrangement alternatives and their related benefits as well as the physical and practical challenges of the aluminium melting process using fuel fired reverberatory furnaces. Performance comparisons are made between dry hearth and wet hearth furnaces to highlight the benefits of dry hearth melting as well as the impact of melting practice on ultimate equipment performance. Both single chamber and twin chamber dry hearth furnaces are described in various configurations including the unique benefits of each design.
