Processes - Non-Ferrous (Aluminum / Copper / Zinc / Lead / Magnesium): Material Processing - Melting / Holding

Secondary Aluminum Melting and Holding
The secondary melting process is accomplished in a variety of aluminum melting and holding furnaces in metal casting facilities.

  • Reverbs (both gas and electric)
  • Crucibles (natural gas fired and electrically heated)
  • Induction (coreless and channel)
  • Rotary / Barrel
  • Stack / Jet / Tower
  • Other Designs

After melting is complete, the molten metal is transferred by ladles, or via holders and launders, to the casting area. A short video clip showing the melting and transfer process for aluminum can be launched below.
