MetaCast Crucible Aluminum Furnace

The new MetaCast 'Boost System' crucible aluminum furnace eliminates the need to have expensive exhaust recuperators to send in heated air with the combustion gases. The specially designed entrainment chamber ensures that all gases entering the firing chamber get burned with minimal waste. The combination of the high velocity entrainment and heat retention gives it an efficiency improvement of 40-70% over conventional furnaces. The 'Boost' tunnel system is used in all MetaCast specialty furnaces and adapts very well to oval crucible applications such as magnesium melters/holders.
