The ECOMELT PS furnace type melts scrap efficiently and cost-effectively at high melting rates. It is built for scrap material like painted profiles with thermal break, baled litho sheets, UBC (used beverage cans), etc. containing up to 10 percent organic compounds. The preheat preheat compartment of this type can be charged with several batch loads. This results in a melting capacity of 12 tons per hour (240 tons per day). Equally impressive is the low specific energy consumption of as little as 370 to 450 kilowatt-hour per ton.
