K40 utilizes low frequency power generator of the very latest technology ensuring a great mixing of metal and fast smelting even for large volumes. The crucible tilting device is electric and guarantees a pouring of metal into the ingot mould without the need to handle the crucible. The device is designed to overcome any problems concerning possible accidents in the pouring stage.
K40 has a type “K” immersion thermocouple up to °C 1150 (upon request a type “S” themocouple up to °1450 °C is available) or optical infrared devices and inert gas attachment on top of the crucible to prevent oxidation of metal when pouring.
K40 can utilize pure graphite crucibles as well as Salamander.
