More Info


The Crucible Furnace is usually placed on a Flamefast Raised Sand Tray (1200 (L) x 800 (W) x 300mm (H)) which removes the need for a casting pit. The sand tray raises the crucible to a more convenient working height and means that only protective leggings are needed rather than protective footwear.

The burner has a piezo igniter and is fitted with flame failure protection. The essential simplicity of the CM450 means that the unit requires minimum maintenance

A durable stainless steel top tile preheat ingots of Aluminium to improve the casting operation

If required the drum assembly can be detached and carried to the mould using the Combined Lifting and Pouring Tools which are available as optional extras.

As with all Flamefast equipment, the CM450 Safety Tilt Crucible Furnace is covered by the Flamefast unconditional 2-year warranty.
