An induction furnace provides accurate and repeatable results. It is a safer and more cost-effective way to melt precious metal bearing materials.
An induction furnace uses a high-temperature electric current to melt the metal with an added fluxing agent. Once the metal is molten it is stirred ensuring the alloying conditions are fully mixed into the melt.
Sampling this melt can be done using glass vacuum pin tubes prior to the pour or by drilling the bar after it has been cooled. Material type will determine the sampling method.
Just Refiners USA, Inc. has three furnaces on site. Our newest and largest is a 75 Kilowatt induction furnace with a 100 lb. capacity. JRI also has a 20 lb. capacity furnace and a 4 lb. capacity furnace for smaller lots.
