Lindberg/MPH shipped two gas-fired, cast iron pot furnaces to a leader in the automotive design and manufacturing industry. The equipment will be used for melting and holding Kirksite, an alloy of aluminum and zinc. One of the industrial furnaces has a melting rate of 660 pounds per hour and a holding capacity of 2,000 pounds. The other pot furnace has a melting rate of 10,000 pounds per hour and a holding capacity of 30,000 pounds. The vastly different sizes allow the customer the flexibility of small- or large-batch melting. Both furnaces are castable-lined and include flue and slag port doors.
