Batch charging of all-electric furnaces – a technology review
Batch charging of cold-top all-electric furnaces poses completely different problems to those encountered on conventional furnaces, and the technologies are therefore also completely different.
Unlike conventional furnaces, where the charger is mainly used to move the batch into the furnace, in the case of most all-electric furnaces the batch has to be distributed over the surface of the melt, and this is in fact the more difficult part of the job.
The article covers the problems involved and the various solutions that are used, and makes interesting reading for anybody with an interest
