K-Type thermo-coupling available fits 1 , 2 and 3kg units.
Observe all indications and instructions to operate your furnace to protect and prolong lifespan.
The Maximum cycle is 40 minutes. The performance of the components are designed to according to this limitation.
For 2nd or 3rd media load first observe a reasonable cooling down period before repeating the subsequent load.
Once the first cycle is complete, switch off the unit before discharging the liquid contents. Don’t close the lid at any time before switching off at the mains switch and at the plug point.
Replace the crucible inside carefully. Allow the unit to cool adequately. After 30 minutes the machine is ready for the 2nd load.
Do not over fill the graphite crucible with metal media. Once temperature control is lit it is ready, add only 1/3rd crucible capacity of metal media… once melted top up to no more then 70%.
Do not drop heavy pieces into the hot crucible, it is brittle at this temperature it will crack the crucible. Always unplug the unit after every use.
If left on by accident over the extended time, unsupervised the thermal coupling and element will become permanently damaged and be void of any warrantee.
Install a surge protection plug immediately on receipt of your machine. The components are sensitive to surges.
Always ensure the room is well ventilated as metals can let off fumes.
If you intend large scale smelting operation we recommend buying additional furnaces and/or upgrading to the Italian model https://www.capewatch.co.za/product/vertical-melting-furnace/
Train your staff with clear procedures.
Guarantee will be applied only when correct working procedures have been observed.
CAUTION NOTE: WORK SAFE *** Always take Protective Measures when melting metals. Safe surroundings
