Rotary Furnaces Pb
Reduction of lead has been carried out for many years in fixed axis rotary furnaces, usually in furnaces with a diameter that is greater than their length, so called ‘short body’ furnaces.

These furnaces have a major inconveniency: slag removal. To achieve this it is necessary to super heat the furnace to liquefy the slag

To simplify this operation Dross Engineering has designed a furnace for melting and reducing:

Lead dross and scrap
Lead oxides
Tin and bismuth dross and oxides
Antimony reduction

The TRF adapted for lead, offers multiple advantages:
Metal can be cast by gravity from a rear tap-out
Once all the metallic lead is cast, slag is removed by tilting the furnace forward.
The geometry of the furnace promotes metal decantation.
