STØTEK Alumelter(AME) is a stationary, high efficiency, electric crucible furnace for melting and holding aluminum. The innovative design makes it possible to replace the heating elements with a minimum of interruptions to the production line, even when the crucible is warm and filled with metal. The separate control panel is designed with easily readable instruments.
The furnace body consists of a solid steel construction and the crucible has a holding range from 300kg to 1800kg of aluminum, depended on which furnace size, needed for your foundry.
The furnace is super insulated and equipped with STØTEK block heating elements.
If necessary the elements can be replaced during production.
The STØTEK control is a relay control (star-delta) which keeps an exact temperature.
The metal temperature is measured by an angle bath-pyrometer with protection tube and controls the star-delta regulation. A chamber pyrometer switches off the regulator at exact temperature.
In all, the STØTEK Alumelter stands out from other crucible furnaces –
Our block heating elements are known for their robust construction which secures a long life/durability and the high quality insulation ensures that you will obtain considerably low energy consumption for both melting and holding of the metal.
Quality and cost reduction – combined!
Of course, the Alumelter T has the same high quality standard that characterizes all our products, ensuring our customers a reliable production for many years to come. The Støtek Alumelter T has a 5-6 years longer average lifetime than competitive products.
The electric STØTEK Alumelter comes in four standard sizes. However, smaller crucibles can be fitted in each of these sizes. Larger furnaces are also available:
- Alumelter 300/54 kW 100 kg /Al/h 300 kg Al
- Alumelter 500/90 kW 200 kg /Al/h 500 kg Al
- Alumelter 800/115 kW 250 kg/ Al/h 800 kg Al
- Alumelter 1800/165 kW 330 kg/ Al/h 1,800 kg Al
It is also possible to get STØTEK Alumelter with a gas-heated model mounted with Kromschröder burner equipment. The gas-heated model has a melting capacity of up to 500 kg aluminum an hour.
The Kromschroder burner control unit regulates the flame from high to low as required and turns the burner off when the set point temperature is achieved. A purge cycle ensures that the furnace is safe to relight automatically.
Due to the layers of high efficiency thermal insulation and the innovative robust design of the furnace, the Alumelter has a very low energy consumption.
Case studies shows that STØTEK furnaces have a remarkable 40-70 % reduction in CO2 emissions, when comparing STØTEK furnaces to competative products. In the long run, these data adds up to quite a lot of money, which could have been saved with an energy efficient product from STØTEK instead.
