Targeted at a reduction of energy costs, a high velocity (forced convection) combustion chamber was constructed to evaluate its effect on fuel consumption in melting aluminum 356 alloy. The furnace alterations are shown in line drawings and photos and detailed schematics show the combustion system control circuits and components. Basically, this 1500 lb/hr. furnace showed a fuel savings of 40% average (percentage increases as furnace approaches maximum capacity) after the high velocity combustion system was installed. The high velocity burner sizes is reduced due to the forced convection characteristics.
