Furnace K 4/10 with steel crucible, e.g. for tin melting

These compact melting furnaces for the melting of non-ferrous metals and alloys are one of a kind and have a number of technical advantages. Designed as tabletop models, they can be used for many laboratory applications. The practical counter balanced hinge with shock absorbers and the spout (not for KC 4/14) on the front of the furnace make exact dosing easy when pouring the melt. The melting furnaces are available for furnace chamber temperatures of 1000 °C, 1300 °C, or 1400 °C.

Standard Equipment

  • Tmax 1000 °C, 1300 °C, or 1400 °C
  • Crucible sizes of 0.75, 1.5 or 3 liters
  • Crucible with integrated pouring spout of clay-graphite included with delivery
  • Additional spout (not for KC 4/14), mounted at the furnace for exact pouring
  • Compact bench-top design, simple emptying of crucible by tiltiing system with gas damper
  • Crucible for heating up of melting furnace insulated with a hinged lid, lid opened when pouring
  • Controller R7 (resp. 3508 for KC)

Additional Equipment

  • Other crucible types available, e.g. steel
  • Design as bale-out furnace without tilting device, e.g. for lead melting
  • Over-temperature limiter for the furnace chamber with automatic reset to protect against overtemperature. The limit controller switches off the heating when the pre-set limit temperature has been reached and does not switch it on again until the temperature falls below the setting again.
  • Observation hole for melt
