Zinc melting container

Container used to transport and/or hold zinc casting alloys (Fig. 1, Ing. Rauch Fertigungstechnik GmbH).

A zinc melting container allows for

  • Storing zinc die casting alloys
  • Holding zinc die casting alloys
  • Transporting zinc melts (liquid transport) from the melting furnace to the machine furnaces of hot-chamber die casting machines.

The zinc melting container is designed as an insulated steel housing holding a welded, alloyed steel crucible equipped with indirect electric bottom heating. It also includes feeding hoppers, places for pumps and an optional weighing platform for monitoring the filling level. Material removal is accomplished by a motor-powered zinc feed pump provided with a self-centering feed rotor.
