Ramp Melting Furnace
GM-K SeriesOur GM-K Series gas ramp melting furnace, also known as a combi melting furnace, or a multi-chamber furnace, or sometimes called a dual-chamber furnace, is extremely flexible. The furnace has two distinct functions. On the ramp side, you can pre-heat and melt sows, T-bars, or ingots, and on the shaft melter side, you can melt returns, ingots, even scrap, or a combination of any of these. This furnace offers excellent efficiency, uniform melting, and operator safety. With a large melting and holding capacity, this furnace is the ultimate choice for large volume, central melting. This series has an automatic elevator for simplified charging. And like all our furnaces, the GM-K Series is controlled by a PLC and a color HMI touch screen which runs a sophisticated program that optimizes performance, operation, and efficiency.
Melt Virtually Anything Your Want.
Our GM-K Series is very flexible and highly efficient. This melting furnace can meet your needs today and can be adapted to any future changes in your production. Not only can it melt a wide variety of materials, but as your production requirements change it gives you the option to run both melting zones at the same time, or just one. Truly flexible.
POUR, DIPOUT OR
Three Options To Meet Your Needs.
Choose from a pneumatic tapout spout, a dipwell, or our electric launder system. Our GM-K Series gives you 3 options.
Precise and Dependable Molten Metal Level Measurement.
Probe type molten metal level sensors can corrode and be affected by dross buildup, and in time they can give back false readings. Our laser level system is no contact, precise, dependable, and durable, and offers long term maintenance free operation.
LARGE PRE-HEAT RAMP
Easy Loading Access.
This model features a large electric drive charging door on the other end of the furnace for loading sows, T-bars and ingots on the pre-heat ramp.
Eliminates Tedious Charging and Simplifies Operation.
The other end of this furnace features a shaft melter with an automatic elevator which has a tilting cart for ingots, returns and scrap. The carts are inserted at the bottom with various types of aluminum material and the cart travels up, the shaft melting lid is opened and the cart dumps the load, and returns to the bottom. The cart is pulled out and another full cart is loaded.
STACK LEVEL SENSOR
Optimized Shaft Filling.
This furnace features an infrared sensor which monitors the level of material in the melting shaft. Once the correct level is achieved a signal is sent to the elevator to sent the cart up with more material. The system ensures optimized filling for maximum performance.
HIGHEST RETURN ON

We Made Furnace Cleaning Easier.
The two side cleanout doors and the large pre-heat ramp door give the operator easy access to all parts of the furnace interior for easy cleaning. There are no blind spots to deal with. All this encourages regular furnace cleaning.
HIGH THERMAL EFFICIENCY
We Add Significantly More Insulation to Our Furnaces Than Most Manufacturers.
The result is excellent efficiency which reqires less gas per ton of aluminum, and is less expensive to operate. More insulation also makes the furnaces safe to touch.
We Add Way More Insulation to Our Furnaces Than Most Manufacturers.
The result is even greater efficiency and a solid, sturdy construction which is hard to beat.
Easy to Operate
Greater Control - Means Greater Efficiency.
The GM-K Series ramp melting furnace features state-of-the-art PLC control with a large color HMI screen with easy to read graphics - all at no extra charge. See in real time all furnace functions and change any setting on the fly. Now that's control.
We Give You Options of PLC & HMI.
Select the control system that is best for you and easiest for your maintenance team.
Three are Better Than One.
Using triple air blowers gives us more flexibility and precision in the amount of air available for the shaft melting, ramp pre-heating and holding chambers at any given time. When balanced correctly they increase the efficiency of the furnace and reduce running costs.
VFD DRIVE BLOWER
Better Efficiency and Lower Operating Cost.
Lots of air without control wastes a significant amount of energy. We use VFD Drives combined with Premium Inverter Duty Motors to give you greater RPM only when it is needed. All this translates into greater efficiency, lower operating costs, quieter operation, soft start and longer motor life. The advantage is clear. This is just one of the many ways we use to increase furnace efficiency, and reduce long term operating costs.
Simplifies Elevator Loading.
All the controls needed to operate and load the shaft elevator with carts are on a separate panel located right on the elevator.
Complete System Included.
The furnaces comes with a dependable air manifold that is properly scaled for the pneumatic air cylinder which operates the shaft melting cover. Air is used also to keep the shaft level sensors clean and clear.
CLEANOUT DOOR PANEL
Simplifies Furnace Cleaning.
Allows the opening and closing of both side cleanout doors with a clear view of the doors. The panel is located conveniently and can be pushed out of the way when not needed.
Fast Onsite Connection.
Our quick connection plugs eliminate onsite wiring errors and allow for quick onsite furnace assembly and future maintenance. It is one of the little things that count and make our furnaces different.
We Use Brand Name Components You Know and Already Use.
We use only the finest quality components that are open source and readily available locally in your area, or from our online parts store.
We Can Remotely Troubleshoot Your Furnace from Our Facility.
Our GM-E Series mini stack melting furnaces include a Remote Connectivity Unit which allows our furnace technicians to remotely check the performance of the furnace, make any needed changes to the program or HMI, or to troubleshoot it directly from our service center. The customer is only required to connect the unit to the Internet via an Ethernet cable. We handle the rest.
Remotely Monitor Your Furnace Performance From Any Device.
As an option, all our furnaces are available with Industry 4.0 remote performance monitoring units which feature a custom dashboard. You can not only monitor furnace performance, but you can be notified before an issue occurs. Included are condition based maintenance reminders and shift performance statistics. Minimize impact of emergencies and maximize furnace uptime, and productivity. See what is going on with the furnace and your production from any device, anywhere in the world.
