Drache has an optimised crucible for Aluminium foundries in its product range. Its outstanding feature is its extremely low energy consumption and extremely homogeneous temperature distribution of +/- 2° C. These properties are achieved by directly heating the melt by means of immersion heating elements, as well as the use of highly efficient insulation.
Other key features of the Drache crucible furnace are its ease of cleaning, since virtually no corundum forms inside, as well as a long service life of the crucible furnace of typically more than 1.5 years. Drache furnaces can be designed in customised versions with an effective volume ranging from a few hundred kilograms to about two tonnes.
