Immersion Furnaces

SINC Thermal’s holding furnaces overcome many of the traditional problems associated with radiant or gas fired units by using immersion heating elements to submerge the heat source and use the principle of conduction to transfer heat directly into the molten aluminum, offering the most efficient heat transfer method for holding temperatures up to 1380°F (~750°C).

Electric immersion heaters offer the highest heat transfer, and energy efficiency with minimal dross formation. These features combine consistent and reliable operation while optimizing the service life of the refractory lining.

SINC’s compact design allows easy access for cleaning, quiet operation, and low heat loss for boosting energy efficiency while also improving the working environment for your operators.

  • Immersion heated furnaces also improve metal quality and reduce cleaning operations by maintaining uniform temperature and reducing oxides formation.
  • Furnaces can be configured to suit customer and installation requirements with left hand, right hand or central fill points.
  • The filling pocket is designed to promote metal flow and avoid stratification without unnecessary disturbances.
  • Heating element position can be configured to suit customer installation.
  • Horizontally installed through the side wall (left or right through the bath end wall, or vertically installed in the bath lid.
  • A variety of options are also available to accommodate different operating conditions and temperatures.
