Making Electric Aluminum Foundry DIY

  • I decided to make an electric furnace because it's totally silent, I may use it inside my workshop, I also may control temperature and I don't have to worry about lack of gas or wood coal.
    The furnace works perfectly, after an hour of preheating the temperature is ready to melt aluminium. I didn't test it to maximum temperature because 800 degrees of Celsius is sufficient.

    An external case is a bit warm but it doesn't pose a problem in using it. I heat workshop in winter so I won't have problem with it :)
    I am going to use this furnace mostly to cast aluminium, later I am going to use it on lathe.


    Things I used:
    REX-C100FK02-V*AN AC 230V
    TEMPERATURE SENSOR TYPE K 0 ° C .. 800 ° C
    Fotek SSR-25DA SSR-25 DA Solid State Relay 25A
    19 Insulating FireBrick J23

    Some tools I use in my constructions:

    Self made:
    Belt grinder 2x48 - https://www.ruhot.net/video/2rB59KaMjaQ/video.html
    Vise - https://www.ruhot.net/video/7BANZRdqFvU/video.html
    Drill press STAND with COOLANT SYSTEM - https://www.ruhot.net/video/o68uiTp_gWk/video.html

    and
    Welder IDEAL Tecnomig 200GD
    LATHE Cormak 330x770
    Band saw Stiler BS 712R
    Drill press ZX7016
    Chop saw Evolution RAGE 3

    Rex c100fk02, this devices range is 0-400°C so how possible is that you got 800°C ???

    I've heard the best synthetic fire brick is polycrystalline chromium-corundum (yes, synthetic ruby) which is used by the railroad industry for thermite welding.

    Good project, mind you do not drop any aluminium onto the element. The plastic chocolate bock connecting the element will melt was there not a better connector on the hob ?

    I never did catch the type of putty used to join the bricks together.

    Świetny film, piecyk zrobiony z wielką dbałością o szczegóły. Chciałem zapytać jak zastosować ten regulator Rex c100 K02 skoro jego zakres pomiarowy jest tylko do 400 st Celciusza a termopara daje normalne wartości jak dla 600 st. Czy trzeba go jeszcze jakoś skalibrować? Na aliexpres nie widziałem regulatorów z zakresem do 800 stopni. Pozdrawiam i liczę na odpowiedź :)

    What if some of the aluminium spills over inside the crucible?

    will this work on metals with a higher melting point than aluminum? Steel is about 1540c.
