Successfully, in September 2016, one state-of-the-art stirrer Low Energy Consumption stirrer for 80 t Melting Furnace purchased by one primary Italian company has been commissioned by Melting Technology division of Presezzi Extrusion Group. The Low Energy Consumption stirrer for Melting furnaces creates a strong turbulent flow mixing the melt in vertical & horizontal directions. The combination of rotation and translation movements contributes considerably to drop melting decrease (maximizing the scrap metal return) and to the minimization of the specific energy consumption of methane gas.
This state-of-the-art stirrer ensures better efficiency than any other conventional system and it does not require water piping, pumps and water treatment plant. Using the new L.E.C. Stirrer the customer reaches an average consumption during the process steps of 25,66 kWh. In this single chamber Melting Furnace with 80 t capacity, working with the new Low Energy Consumption stirrer, the customer achieves an annual energy saving of 523.644 kW.
