Melting furnace operation is one of the initial steps in the casthouse process. Melting operations and furnace types can dramatically impact cost factors, including productivity, melt loss, metal content in the dross, energy efficiency and metal cleanliness.

Pyrotek's expertise in metal melting and engineering can provide casthouses with optimal materials and designs to yield the best possible result, from furnace circulation to fluxing to scrap preparation and remelting. The company's refractory services range from complete big block installs to relines to consulting.

Other solutions include mechanical circulation pumps, flux and flux-injection equipment for dross maintenance, engineering services, thermocouples and gaskets and seals.
