Immersion Heating Systems

Overview

Immersion heating systems are the most efficient way to maintain the temperature of molten aluminium in transit between the melting furnace and the casting stations, offering nearly a 100 percent efficiency rate. The system uses electrical resistance and conduction to heat the metal from below the surface. Immersion heating systems are comprised of an electrical connection, extension, thermocouple, heating elements and outer sheath tube material. They can be fixed or portable and are widely used throughout casthouse operations including trough systems, holding furnaces, degassing stations and transfer ladles.
