More Info


To improve the casting operation, there is a durable stainless steel top tile to preheat ingots of metal.

The CM450PB is a safety tilt crucible which removes the need to lift the pot of molten metal unless lifting is required for the particular mould configuration being used. If lifting is required, a special lifting frame is available which lifts the whole drum assembly rather than the "bare" white hot crucible pot to improve safety of working.

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 auto ignition with fail safe controls and flame failure protection. The simplicity of the CM450PB means that the unit requires minimum maintenance.

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

As with all Flamefast equipment, the CM450PB Safety Tilt Crucible Furnace is covered by the Flamefast unconditional 2 year warranty.
