Fives Solios has a long tradition for the supply of Aluminium Melting Furnaces.
Round top, static and tilting furnaces have been supplied around the world by Solios Thermal for a wide range of melting processes; from clean production scrap remelting and primary ingot remelting to contaminated scrap, UBC, oily swarf and extrusion scrap. We have been involved in a variety of project types from single furnace supply up to large multi-furnace projects with turnkey supply or partial supply options.
Solios Thermal believes in working closely with our customers to design our furnaces to suit their individual needs; this is facilitated by employing the latest 3-D modelling techniques to evaluate many design alternatives quickly and efficiently. Our Melting furnaces are designed to include several key features that we feel make our furnaces perform efficiently, easy to maintain and safe to operate.
Individual furnace designs and layouts for customer specific requirements.
Casing constructions designed for the demanding cast house environment.
Fives Solios full-width door allowing complete access for loading and cleaning operations.
Hydraulic door lifting system for safety, reliability and compact layouts.
Door construction designed to maintain an insulating seal by resisting thermal distortion and using hydraulic clamping.
Long lasting monolithic refractory linings designed for the varying conditions inside the furnace chamber, brick linings are also available.
Static or titling furnace configurations available, tilting systems employ single or double cylinder arrangement depending on the customer’s layout criteria.
