Technical data on Casting/Pouring furnace for low pressure casting 2,0 t:

Description: The induction casting furnace 2-6.3-NDG-G-2,0 / 300-N in a fixed, hydraulically tiltable version for low-pressure casting of steel, allows sand molds to be filled with liquid metal on automatic molding plants according to the low-pressure principle. The pressure control offers the possibility to fill every single mould as per desired, predetermined pressure curve.

The casting furnace consists of a ceramic-lined steel vessel with a filling siphon, a pressure chamber with a flanged crucible inductor and a pouring chamber for filling the molds. For emptying, e.g. when changing alloys, the casting furnace can be tilted hydraulically.
