We work with our customers to find solutions that will create easy work flow and maximize efficiencies. This system was able to provide our customer with these benefits along with improved safety for their workers.

Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of an 85’ long electric resistance heated aluminum launder system to a leader in aluminum die casting. This launder system will be connecting the customer’s existing gas fired aluminum melting furnace to three (3) new electric resistance aluminum holding furnaces located at their three diecast machines.

The launder eliminates equipment and manpower costs, as well as the inherent dangers, associated with transferring molten aluminum from the melting furnace to the three holding furnaces with fork lifts and transfer ladles. The launder also keeps the molten aluminum at a set point temperature until it reaches the holding furnaces which means there is no temperature lost during transfer.

Overall, this system saves energy by eliminating two (2) pours. One (1) from the melting furnace to the transfer ladle and another from the transfer ladle to the holding furnace. It eliminates the oxides and the resulting hard spots that form each time the molten aluminum is disturbed making it very efficient for the customer.

Unique features of this aluminum launder system include:

  • Air cylinder operated launder and holding furnace heating lids for ease of access for cleaning and maintenance.
  • Highly insulated calcium silicate board linings that are naturally non-wetting to aluminum saves energy and makes cleaning a breeze.
  • A working tap encased in a bolt-on end cap on the launder allows for tapping metal for remote holding furnaces not attached to the new launder system.

This electric resistance heated aluminum launder system is factory tested and adjusted prior to shipment to help reduce installation and start-up times. The system is backed by Lindberg/MPH’s Exclusive 3-Year Warranty. This warranty covers all materials for all components (less wear items).
