Energy Saving Recuperators Installed

Energy Saving Recuperators installed by Melting Solutions

energy-saving-recuperatorsThree furnaces in Mexico have recently been installed and commissioned with a new generation of energy saving recuperators designed by Melting Solutions.

They are able to pre-heat combustion air to 300-325°C.  This innovative technology is able to deliver a 20% fuel saving with a LOW capital investment cost, delivering a very fast payback.

The novel design takes high temperature products of combustion, through a series of tubes with combustion air circulating around the exterior of heat exchanging tubes.

This design is available with Melting Solutions for melting and holding furnaces.  It can also be incorporated into upgrades and the refurbishment of existing plants.

Interpower Induction are now nearing the completion of the build of distillation induction heaters for the food industry.

With temperatures up to 300 degrees celcius, the induction heaters will provide accurately controlled heating.

An additional 3 heater units are still continuing to be built with completion foreseen early in the new year.

Engineers Dan Worton, Alex Massey, Mike Allsopp (Project Leader), Carlton Reeves, Paul Hodgkins and Jack Massey enjoy a moment to reflect.

New Sales in North America- Charging Machine and Rotary Furnace

charging-machine-and-rotary-furnaceA major liquid metals supplier to automotive producers has completed an investment for a Tilt Rotary Furnace to handle their complex mix of scrap and dross. This radical purchase now puts the customer in a strong position to now source low cost feedstock for their operation. This will now give them extra added value to their end product.

Melting Solutions have completed the installation of a 15t Tilt Rotary Furnace with integrated Charging Machine as a complete turnkey project. A high performance variable ratio combustion system was selected. This was to take advantage of the high speed melting afforded by oxy fuel, using lower oxygen content in the combustion flame during less critical phases of the melt cycle. This is saving natural gas and oxygen.

CNC Milling Centre increases capacity

Interpower Group Company Adroit Engineering has invested in two additional CNC Bridgeport Milling Centres. These two CNC Milling Centres will increase Adroit’s capacity for CNC projects by 40%.

“We are now in a position to run production jobs while still having the flexibility to offer quick turn around for existing customers on smaller jobs.” explains Christian Dunn, Managing Director of Adroit.
