Before you start your melting furnaces...
Did you know furnace efficiency and functionality can be affected by periods of inactivity? To ensure your StrikoMelter delivers optimum melting performance from the beginning, it is advisable to carry out basic cleaning before re-starting – this will also help achieving optimum metal quality.

It is also worth cleaning and checking the positioning of the thermocouples located in the melting and holding chamber, as accurate temperature monitoring is essential to furnace efficiency.

Lastly, for optimal performance it is advisable to dismantle the protective tubes and making sure the correct pre-heating program is selected (with a short heating curve).
