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.
