Baker Furnace shipped a hydraulically tilted crucible furnace to Bulgaria. A supplier to the European automobile industry will use the industrial furnace to melt aluminum. The furnace, which utilizes a self-contained hydraulic system to tilt and pour the molten aluminum into molds or casting machines, has a maximum temperature of 2200°F (1205°C) and is capable of melting 2,000 pounds of aluminum. It is constructed with a 7-inch-thick castable refractory lining, which retains heat produced by the burner. The heat retention helps to maintain the operating temperature while limiting the energy usage of the burner.
