Nabertherm's tilting furnaces are used in numerous areas of foundry and casting plants. The tilting furnace is ideal for melting or keeping the molten metal warm. The tilting furnace can be used manually or either as part of an automated system.

Nabertherm's tilting furnaces are particularly suitable for melting and casting of light, non-ferrous and heavy metals. 

The Nabertherm electrically heated tilting furnace of the K series are characterised by high melting performances with very good temperature uniformity in the melt.

Aluminum and brass can both be melted in this 1200 °C version.

Key features of the K.40/12 Melt and Hold Furnace

  • K.40/12 with a maximum furnace chamber temperature of 1200 °C for aluminum or brass. Maximum bath temperature, depending on the condition of the crucible, between 1050 °C and 1100 °C
  • Heating from three sides using electric heating elements, radiating freely on carrier tubes, simple exchange of individual heating elements
  • High melting performance with temperature uniformity in the melt
  • Insulation constructed in multiple layers with lightweight refractory bricks on the hot face (K models)
  • Crucible of clay-graphite, 
  • Electro-hydraulic tilting system with flame resistant HFC hydraulic fluid
  • Safe, even, and precise pouring thanks to optimum pivot point in the furnace and manual throttling valve
  • operation
  • Emergency outlet for safe draining of the melt in case of crucible breakage
  • No exhaust gas discharge needed
  • Integrated safety system which continues to operate the furnace at reduced power in case of malfunction in the bath thermocouple, in order to prevent the freezing of the melt
  • Over-temperature limiter in furnace chamber for protection against overheating. The limiter switches the heating off when the set limit temperature is reached, and only switches it back on after the temperature has fallen again
  • Furnace chamber control with temperature measurement behind the crucible, recommended for melting
