Design, Construction And Testing Of A Crucible Furnace

ABSTRACT

This research work presents the design concept, construction and testing of portable crucible

furnace which uses diesel oil as fuel. The diesel fired crucible furnace was designed, constructed

using locally available engineering materials mild steel sheet of 1.5 mm, the materials used in this

work were obtained from the local markets within Akure and Lagos. They include: mild steel sheet

of 1.5mm thickness, compressor pot, stainless steel pipe of 60mm diameter, refractory material

(kaolin). A thermocouple with model No kane-may km 340 were used to measure the temperature

and heat generated respectively. The furnace is suitable for use both in the rural and urban areas

for melting of different types of aluminum cast iron. The furnace is environmental friendly without health hazards to the workers and can be moved from one place to another unlike the local one.
