How can I make my work with the equipment as safe as possible? In order to guarantee optimal conditions and, above all, absolute safety when working with Goldbrunn melting furnaces, great importance is attached to the careful processing of high-quality materials during production. Each melting furnace comes with a detailed operating manual which contains easily understandable safety instructions. These can be found under "General and special safety instructions for the use of melting furnaces" as well as in the "General safety instructions for electric appliances". Please ready these instructions carefully before using the device, and contact costumer services should you have queries or need further clarification on any points. In order to ensure the safe long-term use of the device by all users, please keep the safety instructions as well as the operation manual for the device always in reach, i.e. near the device.
Which materials can I melt in the devices offered here? The graphite crucible used for the devices is only suited for the melting of noble metal. Other types of metals can only be melted in a crucible adapted for the respective material. With a maximum output of 1100 degrees Celsius offer, the devices can generally be used to melt the commercial noble metals gold, silver and copper. Consequently, any noble metal with a melting temperature that exceeds the maximum operating temperature of the melting furnaces offered by the brand Goldbrunn, cannot be melted.
What is the best way to set up my Goldbrunn melting furnace? By thoroughly reading the provided safety notes, you will get a good picture of any possible safety risks which may occur during the actual melting process. In order to minimize these risks, you should first of all carefully consider the positioning of the melting furnace. Basic safety measures should include a fireproof support plate, a safe cable installation (make sure these don't present a tripping hazard and won't result in pulling down the device) as well as the possibility of an extractor or a fan installed over the melting furnace. These measures are pretty self-explanatory, as the melting process will inevitably result in the generation of both heat and gas (especially with impure materials).
What exactly does the PID module in these melting furnaces do? The PID controllers, or (Potential Integral Differential) in our melting furnaces serve practically as a replacement for a thermostat, as the PID offers advantages in terms of precision, efficiency and user flexibility. For the products distributed here this means that an analysis of temperature variance is carried out every two seconds and the module automatically balances out the respective difference. This ensures that the set temperature is kept on the same level, while overheating or an unwanted cooling is avoided, which ultimately helps to achieve optimal energy efficiency.
