THE FURNACE

V. Ryan © 2003

 

 
   

This is a typical cylindrical shaped furnace for the casting of aluminium. The lid/top can be pulled back by placing a steel hook in the ‘ring’ and gently pulling the lid to the side. This allows the crucible to be removed or ingots to be added.
The gas blows through the intake and ignites inside the furnace and swirls around the crucible dispersing the heat.

Safety is very important as very high temperatures are reached. There are potential dangers if safety equipment is not used or safety procedures not followed.

   

QUESTION:

Draw a diagram of a typical furnace for aluminium casting. Label the most important parts.
