An exceptional heater for the Metal Industry

Since 1993 Electromach has been supplying heaters to the company NKM Noell. Electromach recently acquired another order, this time to supply 5 large industrial electric heaters. The heaters have an exceptional size of 2.6 mtr diameter at a height of 2 meters.

This huge heaters are used in the aluminum industry for preheating ladles. At the transport of liquid aluminum, large ladles have been used. These ladles must first be brought up to temperature before the liquid aluminum (from about 600°C) can be casted in the ladle.

If this will not be done, the bricks, on the inside of the casting ladle, will not withstand the high temperature of the aluminum and are not able to resist cracking.
