The Lifting Block is an essential component of the Black Dragon Metal Smelting Furnace, providing stability and facilitating even heating of the chamber and crucible. Made from solid vibratory cast high heat refractory cement, this consumable product is included with each smelting furnace but can also be purchased separately if needed.

The Lifting Block has a diameter of 110mm and a thickness of 30mm, offering a robust and durable support for the crucible. Despite its sturdy construction, it weighs just 0.46kg, making it lightweight and easy to handle during setup and operation.

To ensure optimal performance and prevent sticking, it is recommended to take a simple precautionary step.

TIP: Ensuring Even Heating and Preventing Sticking

To achieve optimal heating and prevent sticking during the melting process in the Black Dragon Metal Smelting Furnace, it is recommended to follow these steps:

  1. Placing the Lifting Block: Begin by placing the lifting block at the bottom of the furnace chamber. The lifting block serves as a buffer between the chamber and the crucible, facilitating even heat distribution and preventing direct contact.

  2. Positioning the Crucible: Once the lifting block is in place, carefully position the crucible on top of the lifting block. Ensure that the crucible is centered and stable, allowing for efficient melting.

  3. Using Newspaper Sheets: To further enhance the performance of the furnace and prevent sticking, it is advised to use a couple of sheets of newspaper. Place a few sheets of newspaper under the lifting block and a few more under the crucible. This simple technique creates a protective barrier, reducing the likelihood of the crucible sticking to either the lifting block or the bottom of the furnace.

By employing this method, you ensure that the heat is evenly distributed throughout the chamber, allowing for efficient melting of the metals. Additionally, the newspaper acts as a preventive measure, reducing the risk of the crucible sticking to surfaces within the furnace.

Remember to exercise caution and follow safety protocols when working with high temperatures. Always refer to the furnace's setup guide and safety instructions for proper handling and operation.

Now that you have these valuable tips, you can confidently utilize the Black Dragon Metal Smelting Furnace to its fullest potential, ensuring optimal melting results and preventing any unwanted sticking issues.
