Holding electric resistance stationary furnaces PTE Mk.II

PTE Mk.II furnaceThe PTE Mk.II furnace is designed with focus on energy savings and is suitable even for foundries with limited installation space. The PTE Mk.II’s high-tech insulating materials and new mounting system of heating coils allow for the smallest possible external furnace dimensions. The coils are placed in refractory castable shape grooves which prevent them from overheating. This placement also protects against splashing aluminum in the case of crucible breakage. The power consumption of the PTE Mk.II is reduced to the minimum necessary. This low consumption, together with the furnace’s new insulation system, makes the PTE Mk.II one of the most energy efficient devices for aluminum holding on the market. The PTE Mk.II furnace is designed mostly for holding with limited melting output and therefore is recommended for foundries with central pre-melting furnaces and secured transport of the melt.
