How to melt steel

Even more often men reflect how it is possible to melt steel in house conditions. It is quite possible if it is good to consider everything and to create the hands the special furnace not for fusible materials, namely for steel.

Get heating elements, try to create the furnace independently. It will significantly save your budget and will bring satisfaction from the done work. The only problem which you can face, this regulation of temperature, but also it is quite possible to do without it if completely to control melting process.


Take away a special place which will not do to anybody harm for steel melting. It can be garage if in it there is enough place for placement of your equipment. When using self-made horns on coal and diesel fuel do not forget to organize thermal insulation and having blown air. Chamotte perfectly will be suitable for thermal insulation.


For simple pastime, without serious intentions, try to create the small furnace for cooking, but not for full melting. As a rule, it takes a lot of time and forces.


Remember, depending on composition of steel also melting temperature depends. For beginners it can be problematic, but over time, with experience accumulation, you learn to maintain correctly time and to define readiness of steel for further work on it. From a school course of physics you have to know that the approximate temperature of melting of steel makes 1300-1400 degrees that characterizes steel as refractory material.


When heating steel becomes soft and loses durability. Therefore process of melting characterizes quality of this steel. For heating of steel to necessary temperature it is necessary to enter into the furnace additional heat by means of regenerators. At an electromelting way use the electric power.


In induction crucible furnaces use any skrap. Add slags, they improve activity of melting. Surely watch indications the device, if necessary change the mode of melting on more sparing.
