What is the best mix for optimized copper melting performance?
The NORVIBE™ range of products is well suited for use in the working lining of a copper-melting coreless induction furnace.
The NORVIBE™ A 122 mix is a popular and proven choice for copper melting in many international markets. It offers excellent results with low metal infiltration ensuring performance, reliability and extended furnace campaign life.
Which products can address the issue of zinc infiltration close to the inductor when working with Zn-Mg alloy melting at temperatures under 500 °C?
The NORVIBE™ range has been specifically designed for installation around the inductor, with the NORVIBE™ A 126 A and NORVIBE™ K 130 ZN mixes being ideal for lower temperature applications. Both mixes exhibit excellent strength at lower temperatures, significantly reducing the risk of metal leakage and minimizing potential downtime.
