MODEL DO-300A, DO-600A, DO-1000A, DO-1500A, DO-2000A

There are 5 sizes of Dip-Out furnaces made by McEnglevan. The A series are for melting aluminum or other low temperature metals. Size ranges are from 300 lbs. capacity to 2,000 lb. of aluminum. The standard model uses two thermocouples. One thermocouple is placed in the molten metal bath and the other thermocouple is placed in the firing chamber wall. Burner control is automatic by means of a two loop, microprocessor based temperature controller, using a function called Cascade Control. The control system is supplied in a free standing, Nema 1 rated cabinet with a fused disconnect. This type of control uses two setpoints and is much more accurate than the single loop type of control. It minimizes overshoot of the bath set point and also has programming features that allow the operator to have idle programs. These programs can provide additional gas savings and increased production capabilities. The burner system is a single, high velocity burner with proportioned control. Includes an FM approved safety system, which consists of spark ignition, bypass pilot, blower air switch, hi-lo gas pressure switch, double gas valves, vent valve, double gas cocks, high and low fire pre-ignition purges, gas regulator, and continuous flame monitoring. This system provides for automatic shut-down in the event of power failure, blower failure, too high or too low gas pressure, or flame failure. System must be manually reset after any of these failures before restarting. The safety system also has a pre-ignition purge and a diagnostic module is included for analyzing flame failure, should one occur. Wiring conforms to the National Electric Code and all components are either U.L. listed or CSA approved. The furnace lining is a combination of high alumina fire brick, backed up by 2800° castable and ceramic fiber. This combination reduces weight, gives exceptional insulating properties, and helps to reduce gas consumption. Each unit comes with a crucible base block. Crucible is extra.
