Nose Pour Tilting Melters
NOSE POUR TILTING CRUCIBLE FURNACE-max temperature 2400 deg F. Furnaces operating above 3000′ elevation may require a larger blower and manifold to operate with the same efficiency. Please let us know the elevation.
We recommend that the customer install a pressure gauge and regulator on their incoming line. We DO NOT provide these.
The nose pour feature permits precise control of molten metal flow into a mold or pouring ladle. The nose pour configuration locates the crucible pouring lip coaxial with the trunnion bearings, so it is in a constant position during pouring. This provides greater safety and the shorter molten metal stream reduces the amount of hot metal exposed to cooling and oxidation.
The tilting mechanism is available in either hydraulic or manual hoist configuration, as shown in the illustration. The hydraulic tilt is designed with two double acting cylinders with hydraulic pump, valves and control systems. The manual hoist system employs an overhead chain, electric or air hoist (furnished by customer) to tilt the furnace. Each design assures a smooth pouring action.

Model T200- available in 3 models:
900075 T200-MT with manual control tilt mechanism (requires overhead hoist)
900085 T200-HT with hydraulic tilt option
900082 T200-HT-PC with proportionating control. This allows the gas/air mixture to stay in proportion at all levels of the firing rate, from high to low, helping the furnace operate at maximum efficiency, while still maintaining a fast melt rate. A single switch operates the burner.
Hydraulic Tilt – Nose Pour
Models T-600, T-1000
MIFCO is building larger, tilting, crucible or cast iron pot melters that can produce fast, economical melts of non-ferrous metals. Currently available are the models T-600, T-1000. The T-1000 has a capacity of 1000 lbs. of aluminum and 2400 lbs. of brass or bronze. The T-1000 can produce economical melts in as little as 70 minutes for aluminum and approximately 2-1/2 hours for brass, from a cold start. All are lined with the same high alumina, pre-fired refractory bricks that all our melters feature, for long life and resistance to flaking and spalling. All units feature hydraulic tilting and a hydraulic lid lift as well. These models are also available with temperature control and can be fitted for recuperative burner systems for additional savings in fuel consumption.
