Hertwich Engineering, a company of SMS group, received an order from Austria’s Georg Fischer for a multi-chamber melting furnace for melting and holding aluminum. The new multi-chamber furnace, which has a production capacity of up to 90 tons per day, operates with scrap preheating and uses the immersion melting process. It is particularly suitable for melting ingots and thin-walled revert scrap, even with adhering coolants and lubricants from machining. The furnace, which is scheduled to start production in the fourth quarter of this year, achieves a melting rate of up to 4.5 tons per hour.
