Application Fields of Gold Smelting Equipment

Our Gold Smelting Equipment can be used in a wide range of fields, some of which are mentioned below.

gold smelter working onsite

1.1, Smelting the Gold Ores

High pressure is usually involved in smelting gold. Heat and chemicals are also needed to ensure that the ore is broken down with the aim of separating it from available impurities. To smelt gold, it needs to be heated to a temperature of around 2,150 degrees Fahrenheit or 1046 degrees Celsius. Gold smelting equipment can be used to smelt gold ores, gold dust and gold mines to get rid of none-metal impurities so that pure gold is extracted.

1.2, For Recycling old gold

If you have some old outdated jewelry in your house, it makes sense if you can come up with a way of using it to create something new. This can be done when you have a much more wearing design in mind. This can be best done at home, especially if you are deeply convinced against finding an expert who can do the work for you.

You need to use the right smelting equipment to melt your jewelry down so that you cast it into something new. The same thing can be done with semi-finished products such as plates, tubes, and rods. Maybe you have something with sentimental value, but it does not fit your current lifestyle.

1.3, For Jewelry Casting

Before you cast jewelry, you need to ensure that it is melted so that it is turned into aqueous state, or rather converted from solid to liquid. Thereafter, you can use the smelting process, to improve the purity of your gold. Jewelry casting involves the creation of mold. The mold is then filled with molten metal so that you get a piece of finished jewelry.

This process is generally referred to as lost wax casting, and we are here to tell you that you can do all that with our machine. The process has that name because the process involves the lost of wax. Gold casting is a process that can be applied on gold nuggets and scrap gold to make things such as gold bars or granule for stock and deal.

How to Smelt Gold Nowadays

The world has really advanced, and there are newer ways to smelt gold. In case you haven’t known these methods, you better start feeling lucky because we are about to lift the lid for you. But before we get started, let us remind you that most of these things can be done using our gold smelting equipment.

2.1, How to Smelt Gold By Propane Kiln

Wondering how to smelt gold by propane kiln? Read on. To begin, get a crucible container to let you hold the gold as it melts. There are impurities in the gold, and you can use flux to remove them. While doing these things, you need to give your safety the best priority because accidents might occur. Remember you will need to use heating out to generate the heat needed to smelt gold.

A propane kiln can help you melt gold. Once that is done, go ahead and shape your gold. To do this, make sure that the gold is placed in a crucible. If you are handling a finely powdered gold, be careful and make sure that you provide your flame and see that it is done slowly and safely. Failure to do that might have you blow out the whole powder from the crucible.

You need to heat it thoroughly and do it slowly. You need to have the flame right above the powder and try to see that the heating is done while delivering equal amounts of heat to the entire gold metal.

2.2, How to Smelt Gold By Resistance Furnace

Resistance furnace is more of current passing through conductor joule heat that is generated by an electric furnace for the source of heat. In this process, furnace acts as the heat source. It uses electric heating elements to convert electrical energy into the final heat energy. The heat energy is then used to heat metal. Resistance furnace can be used to smelt high amounts of gold, but it still might not be the best method out there.

This method might not be great especially when you are looking to avoid paying huge electricity bills for starters. Again, resistance furnace might develop heat complications, thereby leading to unevenly smelted gold. Therefore, try to use other smelting methods that will ensure that impurities are removed from the gold metal you are working on.

2.3, How to Smelt Gold in Induction Furnace

An induction furnace is an electrical furnace that involves the application of heat through induction heating of metal. Induction furnace comes in a wide range of capacities, from less than a kilo to a hundred tones. These machines are used to melt iron and steel, aluminum, copper, and precious metals.

2.4, Why You Should Choose Induction Furnace

Whether you are a seasoned smelter of a novice, you can always do well with induction furnace. These machines are programmed to smelt gold and other non ferrous metals of any size. They also are great for applications that require accurate supply of heat energy for casting purposes.

Without spending a fortune to get these furnaces, you will be impressed by the fact that they come in compact design with features put in place for precision purposes. The heat is supplied evenly to the entire metal within a short duration and you already have your results. You can always get in touch with us for the best deal since we are some of the key players in the industry.

Machine Life After frequent use, you will need to replace the heating torch At least 50% of these machines get broken down after 12 months As long as the cooling is perfect, the machine can last more than five years

An induction furnace features a nonconductive crucible that holds the charge of metals that need to be melted, and a coil of copper wire also surrounds it. There is an aggressive alternating current that is flowing through the wire. It is the coil that creates a rapidly reversing magnetic field which penetrates the metal.

The magnetic field ensures that eddy currents, and circular electric currents are induced inside the metal. It does this through electromagnetic induction. Once the metal has been melted, the vigorous stirring is caused by the eddy currents to ensure that uniform mixing is achieved.

Conclusion: How to Choose the Right Smelting Furnace

Just like any other business, you need to have a good plan before starting to operate. At SuperbMlet, we have many clients looking to

start smelting and melting businesses, without doing the due diligence. Note that any mistakes in the starting stages might make your business sink before it starts to make money. Therefore, since we value our clients, and wish them the best, we would like to share important information on how to choose the right smelting furnace.

Here are some of the things you need to consider when looking for the right gold smelting equipment.

1.The Gold Capacity

This has something to do with the size of your business. For instance, there is no point in looking for a 1kg gold smelting furnace, when you need to produce in large quantities. Though you can always start small as you grow, large businesses require a huge investment to keep with the ever-growing competition. You must have seen up there that we

have any type of equipment that you might need. Before you put your money on any equipment, think about the type of production you would like to take part in and make the most informed decision. If you like, you can go for a furnace that can smelt precious metal of up to 500 kg, depending on what suits your business best.

2.Consider Your Business Model

We are back to the business plan. It is crucial for you to understand your business model before making an initial investment. In case you are looking for something portable, maybe you are a small dealer or small scale gold miner, then there is no reason for you to go for something really huge. This makes sense in that you will spend a lot of money on power and space that you won’t need.

Also, small scale producer tends to plough back a small profit margin, so it will take time for them to get ROI in case they opt for the larger equipment. Big miners can use motor tilting furnace or hydraulic tilting furnace. It has adequate features to make you compete fairly as you try to grow your business and dominate a larger portion of the market.

3.Consider the Price

At SuperbMelt, we have any type of furnace that you might be interested in. But as the buyer, you ought to know that price plays a major role. This is important, regardless of the nature of your business. Even large businesses might have to plan well financially so that they do not record losses at the end of a given financial period.

Therefore, instead of exploiting your financial wellbeing, it is advisable to see that you are spending the right amount of money that will not bring your company to its knees. Check out our website for various types of furnaces we have and their prices so that you get what is right for your business’s undertakings.

4.Think about applicability

The world has gone tech-savvy overall, and many types of products are introduced in the market each day. With that in mind, you need to only go for what will help your business to thrive. Applicability is one key aspect to consider when thinking of getting the tight Gold Smelting Equipment. This is true in the sense that some of the newest products come with fewer features that limit you from getting high-quality products.

Some of them also consume a lot of energy without reflecting the same on their productivity. If you are just looking to start a business, it is vital to ensure that you are putting your money on something that will not cripple the overall stability of your business. We at SuperbMelt, advice that you test the equipment and ensure that all parts are working fine before making a purchase.

5.The reputation of the Dealer

You are not going to buy from the first dealer you find on the internet or offline. Do your homework fast, and we wish there was a way to emphasize this enough. This is where most buyers go wrong. They want to buy from dealers they know very little about, and they end up with wrong products that cannot even last.

If possible, try to run background research on the reputation of various dealers you wish to buy from and confirm that they have been on the market for some time. Online platforms can be created to review various manufacturers, and you should use them to avoid buying from dealers who do not care about quality. Talk to their previous buyers or rather ask questions on social media about the reputation of various dealers, including SuperbMelt.

FAQs

Could I get 9999 Gold from Your Melting Furnace?

Our gold smelting equipment is designed to smelt gold and other non-ferrous metals Therefore, our induction melting furnace cannot purify gold. It could smelt gold ore or sand to remove non-metal impurities to extract gold and other metals. Some customers used it for melt old gold to make gold bars For purifying purpose, it needs refining system.

What Is The Heating Principle for Gold Melting?

The working principle of the induction heating process is a combined recipe of Electromagnetic induction and Joule heating. Planning to use a gold induction furnace? You will need to have the gold placed in a crucible since that is where the heating will be done. The furnace is made using a non-conductive refractory material. The metal placed right inside the crucible will melt into a molten form. Ideally, the procedure used to generate high-quality non-ferrous alloys or steel for casting purposes. This should not be a complicated process to learn, but somehow, we can be of help if you feel that some skills are worth studying.

Could We Use This Furnace to Melt Most Metals Like Iron, Gold, Silver, Copper and Aluminum?

Yes, our machine is designed to melt most metals. But just before you melt ferrous metals, and non-ferrous metals, it needs to be fitted with different types of coils and crucible so that it performs optimally. For instance, silica crucible is best for both iron and steel melting. The aluminum crucible is the best choice for melting copper, silver and gold. These things are important to understand, especially when you are looking to join the smelting and melting industry.

Does this machine Need Water Chiller?

Our machine can do very little if it does not rely on water chiller. Therefore, the most accurate answer to this question is yes. Note that gold smelting involves the generation of heat that could escalate to extremely high temperatures. If the water chiller is not used, the machine might encounter various complications. A water chiller is a device that ensures successful heat exchange between the water and the refrigerant in a closed-loop system. As you can see, it is a necessary device that you might need, especially when you intend to engage in heavy-duty applications.

How to Solve the Gold Lost in Your Furnace?

Temperature control will set the melting point of gold alloy to avoid overheating to bring loss. Gold allow needs to be melted at a given temperature to ensure that there is no loss. Unless you are using the wrong Gold Smelting Machine, you will be able to take control of whatever is happening in the gold melting furnace. Before you begin melting, you need to ensure that you set temperatures to the correct levels. There is not supposed to be any gold lost in the furnace as long as you are using recommended procedures.

How Many Ways Does Gold Smelt?

The propane burner, resistance furnace, induction furnace, and microwave oven, are some of the primary ways in which you can smelt gold. It is important to know that all these methods work differently, which means you the same quality, and they also work at different speeds. Out of the methods mentioned above, we tend to believe that induction furnace is the best method. It delivers the right amount of temperature to ensure that your gold is perfectly smelted within a shorter duration compared to when other techniques are used.

Can you melt 9 carats and 18-carat gold together?

Yes, you can melt the two metals together, but there are things you need to take note of. In case you melt together equal weights of 9 & 18-carat gold, you will end up with 13.5 carats. Not so much use to anybody but the refiner. In order to have 9 carats from the mixture, you might need to add some silver and copper to a combined weight that is equal to the weight of the 18-carat gold. 40/60 fine silver to copper is the best starting point with the assumption that it is yellow gold we have in our case. To sum it up, it mainly depends on how much of each metal you are working on.

Can You Melt Silver in a Kiln?

Yes, this is a process that can be done. Kiln can generate enough temperature to melt silver successfully so that you cast it into different patterns and shapes as you please.

How Can I get Gold from Ore?

Smelting, which results in nearly pure gold, involves melting the negative terminals in our furnace at about 2,100 degrees F (1,149 degrees C). Our workers will add a chemical mixture known as flux to the molten material, so that the gold separates from the metals that are used to make the terminals. We will then pour off the flux and then the gold. Molds are used to transform the liquid gold into solid bars called doré bars. These low-purity bars are then sent to refineries all over the world for further processing.

How to Melt and Purify Gold?

Gold might be one of the hardest metals to purify, but there is always a solution. For instance, seasoned miners advice that you can refine gold using a mixture of nitric acid and hydrochloric acids. Using this method, you will get to dissolve the ore and also separate gold from available impurities. When you are through with the process, you will be left with gold and water. Your gold will have an excellent purity level of up to 99.99%. That was just one of the many ways to refine gold once it has been separated from its ore.

How to Melt Gold Dust?

Melting gold is a critical process. If you cannot melt properly or fast enough, your end product will be affected. We would love to show you how easily you can melt gold dust. There is a wide range of methods that you can use; you can use a gas torch, an electric furnace, a gas furnace, and a coal furnace. The gas torch can also be used for gold melting, but gild dust can waste easily using a gas torch. Therefore, you might consider using a gas furnace, which is a good, affordable method. To complete the process using a gas furnace:

  • Place some borax inside the crucible before you add the gold dust
  • Use a flux, which is a mixture of borax and sodium carbonate. Try to mix this with gold dust right before you begin melting.
  • Oil the mould hold and must be preheated
  • Aluminium chloride can be used on the gold dust after pouring it on the crucible
  • The last step involves selecting any portion of gold and then gold melting and then fixing it for melting.

Could we Remove Copper from Gold In the Furnace?

If you are using a crucible, it is very easy to remove some copper from gold. It would be a great idea to do this before you start to melt gold in the furnace. This is because once gold is in the furnace, the process might be really complicated. Once you have added some copper in the crucible, remove the crucible and allow some time for the metallic mixture to cool down, Pour some nitric acid over the metallic mixture. Once you have done that, the acid will get the silver to dissolve the silver and any other base material. You will be left with pure gold.

How to Remove Impurities from Gold?

Smelting is one of the best ways to get rid of impurities so that you are left with pure gold that you can use to make quality products that can attract lots of income for you and your business. During smelting, you add flux to the melting workflow to remove some impurities and make the gold more pure.

How to Separate Gold from Other Metals By Melting?

Gold might be one of the hardest metals to purify, but there is always a solution. For instance, seasoned miners advice that you can refine gold during amid smelting and melting using a mixture of nitric acid and hydrochloric acids. Using this method, you will get to dissolve the ore and also separate gold from available impurities. When you are through with the process, you will be left with gold and water. Your gold will have an excellent purity level. That was just one of the many ways to refine gold once it has been separated from its ore.

How To Smelt Gold Jewelry?

This is a possible process that you can do at home. You melt down your current gold jewellery and use it to make another item. This is a great process, especially when your current jewellery has some sentimental value. You will need a large baking potato and create some hole into it. Now you want to place some borax into the potato because it will help to get rid of any impurity available. Now you are free to add your gold to the hole and begin smelting.

How many Degrees of Heat is Needed to Melt gold?

You will need around 1,948 Fahrenheit to melt gold. This is the temperature that is needed to end up with stronger gold, because naturally, gold is way too soft to be used. Normally, it is advisable to use other alloy metals such as zinc, copper, silver during the melting process. Gold will always boil at a temperature of 5, 173 degrees Fahrenheit.

Why is Borax Needed in Melting Gold?

At SuperbMelt, what comes to our mind when we hear the word Borax is gold refining. This is very accurate since this mineral does way more than just clean clothes. It is a vital flux in metallurgy for separating slag from gold. You might have realized that lots of borax in the detergent aisle, but this product has a wide range of uses in a plethora of industries. In metal refining, borax is used as a cleaning agent that helps to get rid of impurities from precious metals such as gold. Once you have borax, heat, and some knowledge here and there, you will not spend a lot of time trying to get rid of impurities from your gold. By using borax, you will greatly reduce the melting point of all the elements in the piece of a given ore, with gold included. While out there in the field, a gold prospector can grind and clean a piece of ore before mixing it with borax in a plastic bag. This bag will then be put in a crucible or gold and then heated at highly escalated temperatures. It is the heating action that makes borax to do what it is supposed to.

Can You Melt Old Gold Rings to Make New Ones?

Reusing precious metals is not an easy task compared to reusing gemstones. But it is a possible process. If you like, you can melt old gold and use the same product to make a new item. If you want, you can talk to some of our designers, and they will do the job for you. Gold can be melted down and redesigned on a ring by ring basis, and there are no special skills needed. However, if you decided to do this on your own, you want to ensure that no bubbles are formed as this might reduce the overall quality of the item you are making. It is not also possible to change the alloy. Therefore, for instance, you won’t be able to change yellow gold into white gold using this process. There are only three reasons why you might need to do this:

  • For ethical reasons, which means newer mining has to take place You can also do this for financial reasons for instance if there are high levels of a carat in the gold If the metal itself has some sentimental value, for example, if it is a grandparent’s ring
Now we can tell you that this is a possible process, but you might need to talk to an expert beforehand, even if you wish to do it yourself.
