Alumelter K

Støtek Alumelter K is a fully automatic crucible furnace for melting and holding aluminum. It is equipped with hydraulic tilting for easy and safe collection of the liquid metal.

The intelligent design makes it possible to replace the heating elements with a minimum of interruptions even when the crucible is hot and filled with metal. The separate control panel is designed with easily readable instruments.

Of course, the Alumelter K has the same high quality standard that characterizes all our products, ensuring our customers a reliable production for many years to come. The Støtek Alumelter K has a 5-6 years longer average lifetime than similar products.
