RAUCH MDO series Magnesium holding- and dosing furnace

RAUCH MDO series Magnesium holding- and dosing furnace

RAUCH Magnesium dosing furnaces are the result of the close cooperation with our customers and the internal research as well as the consistent conversion of metallurgical realizations and practical concepts. They offer a state of the art installation, maximizing security, effiency and reliability.

[Product Features]

RAUCH Magnesium dosing furnaces are the result of the close cooperation with our customers and the internal research as well as the consistent conversion of metallurgical realizations and practical concepts. They offer a state of the art installation, maximizing security, effiency and reliability.

[Application]

RAUCH Magnesium dosing furnaces make possible…

  • the holding of Magnesium alloys in controlled
    and safe conditions.
  • the full automatic dosing of Magnesium melt into the shot sleeve of a cold chamber dicasting machine.

[Design]

The MDO is designed as a two-chamber model and all spare and wear parts are compatible to the previous generation.

The two-chamber-design makes it possible to hold a constant melt level in the pump chamber.Therefore the casting conditions remain stable.

Up to a size with a maximum melting rate of 1,200 kg/h (2,400 lb/h) the MDO are equipped with electric heatings or gas fired. The heatings and their control as well as the protective gas
supply are separate for melt chamber and pump chamber.

Melt energy and holding loss has been reduced by the use of the most advanced insulation material.

  • Cable guiding (protection against damages and pollution)
  • Minimized biscuit length by latest pump technology
  • Energy saving insulation
  • Maintenance possibilities
  • State of the art safety concept
  • Latest control technology
  • Spare- and wear parts compatibility to the last generation

[Design as melting-, holding and dosing furnace]

If no liquid metal feeding is provided, the RAUCH Magnesium dosing furnaces are designed as melting furnaces. In this case…

  • the melt chamber gets a higher connected load and
  • a RAUCH ingot prewarming and feeding unit MVE is installed at the furnace.

[Transfer systems]

The furnaces can be equipped with upward or downward dosing systems for shot weights from 0,2 kg (0,4 lb) up to 30 kg (60 lb) and more per dosing cycle. In combination with our LPS
system with pump compensation a shot accuracy of +/- 0,75 % of the shot weight will be achieved (depending on the operating conditions).
