At Castech, we have three tilt-pour induction furnaces with a combined capacity of 750 kg gross for the production of ferrous castings. For small ferrous heats and tryouts up to 120kg gross, we use our push up melter.
Aluminium is bulk-melted in a 500 kg capacity gas-fired furnace and transferred into two 350 kg electric resistance furnaces. It is then treated, de-gassed and held to temperature ready for pouring.
By utilizing all 3 tilt pour induction furnaces along with our push up melter, our bronze capacity is 950kg gross. This enables us to produce large bronze castings in a wide range of alloys to internationally recognised standards. This range includes Phosphor Bronze, leaded Bronze/Gunmetal and Aluminium Bronze in many differing grades to suit specific applications.
