      Electric Arc Furnace (EAF)--A steel-making furnace in which ferrous scrap can make up to percent of the material melted. The heat in the furnace is created by electricity that travels (or arcs) from graphite electrodes to the material to be melted. The term "mini-mill" is used synonymously with steel mills that have EAFs. Melt/Pour; Molten Metal Splash and Furnace Refractory Safety. Molten metal splash is the most common cause of melt deck injuries and is caused by the addition of wet materials to the molten bath. It can be minimized by diligently inspecting and treating scrap. Metal run .

    melt; and (7) tapping the molten metal into a ladle or directly into molds. After preparation, the scrap, metal, alloy, and flux are weighed and charged to the furnace. Electric furnaces are used almost exclusively in the steel foundry for melting and formulating steel. There are 2 types of electric furnaces: direct arc and induction.

An electric arc furnace (EAF) is a furnace that heats charged material by means of an electric arc. Industrial arc furnaces range in size from small units of approximately one ton capacity (used in foundries for producing cast iron products) up to about ton units used for secondary furnaces used in research laboratories and by dentists may have a capacity of only a few.

In an arc furnace melting is produced by striking an arc between electrodes suspended from the roof of the furnace and the charge itself in the hearth of the furnace. A charge consists of pig-iron and steel scrap, and the process enables consistent results to be obtained and the final composition of the steel can be accurately controlled.

In Henri Moissan performed extensive experiments with the electric arc furnace and he publihed this in his book. This had a great impact on the metallurgical (particular steel) industry as electric arc furnaces are used more and more in recent years.

The picture above is from his book. Melt System Solutions for Foundry Operations. Industrial melt systems are furnaces that melt scrap and native metal for use in the manufacture of cast or molded parts. Selecting the right type of melt system depends on the metal or alloy to be processed and the expected rate of casting production.

Our selection of arc melting furnaces is low cost, compact, simple to operate and reliable, yet can reach temperatures up to °C and find use in a wide range of applications.

Arc Melting Furnaces use an electric arc to heat or melt material and are a cost saving alternative to induction or resistance heater furnaces for certain applications.

ELECTRIC ARC FURNACE (EAF)--A steel-making furnace in which ferrous scrap can make up to percent of the material melted. The heat in the furnace is created by electricity that travels (or arcs) from graphite electrodes to the material to be melted.

The term "mini-mill" is used synonymously with steel mills that have ears. Our arc melters give you the ability to melt, cast and rapidly solidify metal alloys, using a clean, ceramic free cold crucible process. Our most popular furnaces, available as standard in 50cc and cc capacities as well as custom sizes and configurations, are capable of melting and alloying metals at over Deg.

C, such as titanium alloys, memory alloys and bulk amorphous glass alloys. Induction furnaces use both high and low frequency current. They are successfully used in industry to induce alternating current in solid metal to melt it. Induction furnaces are used to melt ferrous and nonferrous alloys like steel, aluminum alloys etc.

Fig. shows a typical induction furnace. Metal melting furnaces. The manufacture of cast metal relies on furnace technologies, since metals usually melt at very high temperatures.

The first smelting of ores in human history were lead and tin, which can be melted in the heat of the cookfire. After that, metallurgy needed something more than. In the past forty plus years I have made a half dozen melting furnaces using common fire brick as a furnace lining using fire clay as a mortar for the bricks.

I cast a bottom in the water heater 4" to 6" thick of a 1///3 mix of fire clay, silica sand and portland cement, then start my courses of brick up the inside. An induction furnace is an electrical furnace in which the heat is applied by induction heating of metal.

Induction furnace capacities range from less than one kilogram to one hundred tonnes, and are used to melt iron and steel, copper, aluminum, and precious metals. The advantage of the induction furnace is a clean, energy-efficient and well-controllable melting process compared to most.

Furnace Industries is known for their advanced industrial furnace technology and suitable solutions. We offer a wide range of sample drying ovens, cupellation, ashing, calcining and roasting furnaces as well as fused silica and fireclay crucibles, for your foundry. The introduction of commercial electricity supply contributed to the invention of electric arc furnaces.

Graphite electrodes create the electric arc and supply current as the energy source to melt iron. The first electric arc furnace was created in by Paul Héroult of France. Ina commercial plant was established in the United States.

The German-born British inventor Sir William Siemens first demonstrated the arc furnace in at the Paris Exposition by melting iron in crucibles. In this furnace, horizontally placed carbon electrodes produced an electric arc above the container of metal.

The first commercial arc furnace in the United States was installed in ; it had a. the quality of metal that had undergone primary air melting and/or was melted, or remelted, in arc, VIM or ESR furnaces.

The VAR feedstock is consumable electrodes produced by VIM or conventional air melting. VAR, like ESR, depends on controlled cooling and solidification of the remelted ingot to minimize chemical segregation. Zinc has a relatively low melting point °F (°C), so the Arc Furnace is able to melt each casing into liquid zinc in around seconds.

That's amazing. I don't have an exact purpose for the zinc yet, but it's an easy metal to work with, easy to cast. Advanced Melting Technologies: (November Energy Saving Concepts and Opportunities for the Metal Casting Industry BCS, Incorporated Sterrett Place.

SinceRetech Systems LLC advanced process technologies for melting, refining and casting reactive and refractory metals (like Titanium & Titanium alloys), super alloys and rare earth metals include plasma Hearth Melting (PAM), Electron Beam Melting (EB), Vacuum Induction Melting (VIM), Vacuum Arc Remelting (VAR), Rototrode® (non-consumable casting), Plasma & Electron Beam.

The metal casting industry is one of the most energy-intensive manufacturing sectors with the melting process accounting for over half (55%) of its energy consumption. Although its high energy expenses have been a significant concern for metal casters, the industry continues to use melting technologies with poor energy efficiency.

The long arc maximizes the heat of the arc, as it transfers the power to the scrap and a liquid pool of metal, in the hearth of the furnace. If the initiation of the arc is erratic and unstable, wide swings in current are observed accompanied by rapid movement of the electrodes.

As the temperature in the furnace rises the arc stabilizes. research. An electric arc furnace was designed and constructed to melt approximately 5kg of steel/cast iron scraps, using locally produced Soderberg electrodes. Tests carried out showed that it required about 60 minutes to heat up the furnace to the melting temperature of cast iron (C – C).

It took about 95 minutes to melt the first.For speciality steels and superalloys, an electrode is used, previously cast in air or vacuum. For primary reactive metals like titanium, it is material fabricated from compacted sponge and/or scrap.

Two major mechanical assemblies combine to form the vacuum vessel in which melting occurs - the movable furnace head and the fixed melt station.VIM 02 Vacuum Induction Melting & Casting Systems for Charge Weights from 1 up to kg for R&D and Pilot-Scale Production.
