Automotive Supplier Orders Aluminum Holding Furnace
Lindberg/MPH shipped an electric-immersion aluminum holding furnace to a leading automotive parts supplier. The furnace, which has a holding capacity of 2,400 pounds, will maintain aluminum at the required temperature for die casting. It utilizes Lindberg/MPH-patented board lining and high-efficiency immersion tubes/heaters. Dual air-over-oil lifting tanks ensure smooth opening and closing of the fill-well cover. A pneumatically lifted, insulated center-chamber cover saves energy, and a multi-colored stack light indicates molten-metal level.
