Excessive heat loss prevents many metalcasting operations from realizing maximum energy efficiencies, which underscores the need for reliable furnace insulation and lining.
Refractory engineers are under constant pressure to increase the performance of melting, holding, and transfer vessels, in order to maximize energy efficiency. Although there are many materials that can enhance that efficiency, many furnaces lose heat during melting, through flue gas, excess moisture in fuel, continued opening of the furnace door, etc. This prevents many metalcasting operations from realizing maximum energy efficiencies, and increases their attention on the reliability of ...
