Lindberg/MPH announced the refurbishment of an electric immersion aluminum holding furnace for a leader in the automotive parts supplier. The modifications to the furnace, which is used to maintain aluminum at the required temperature for die casting, increased its aluminum holding capacity.
The project included adding a fill well and hinged insulating fill well cover with remote open and close operation. The existing steel shell was modified to accept a side-mounted fill well and the existing refractory lining was replaced. A cast fill well was added to the furnace shell using a castable virtually inert to aluminum oxide formation.
