Alumelter doso(1)


Støtek Alumelter-Doso is an all-in-one crucible furnace for holding, melting and dosing aluminum. The furnace is equipped with a Støtek dosing pump that is renowned for its exact dosing (+/- 1 %), and doses up to 65 kg/ 143 lb per shot.
The furnace ensures high metal quality, and is also perfect for special alloy containing sodium, strontium, or high quantities of magnesium.
A hydraulic hoist is included, so the pump can be lifted easily for cleaning.


Støtek Alumelter-Doso comes in four standard sizes, but other sizes can be designed on request:
