The Benefits of Forced Circulation for Aluminium Reverberatory Furnaces
The benefits of circulating molten metal in an aluminum reverberatory furnace are well documented and include higher productivity, reduced fuel consumption, and excellent metallurgical and temperature homogeneity. Forced circulation can be provided by many different means, but two of the most popular are mechanical and electromagnetic pumps. This paper discusses each benefit in detail to allow the reader to better understand how they are achieved by the use of pumps.
