                     Reverberatory Furnace Operations
GERITY-MICHIGAN CORPORATION
       Demonstrate High Temperature 645 Firing Technique
REVERBERATORY FURNACES designed to in-
crease the production of zinc base die casting alloys
have expanded melting and alloying capacity almost
50% over conventional pot melting. At Gerity-
Michigan Corporation, Detroit, these Gas-fired
furnaces operate on practically continuous schedules
with savings of 35% to 40% based on time-saving
methods and more efficient fuel utilization.
This application demonstrates the flexibility of
GAS for industrial heating processes in high tem-
perature ranges. But it also emphasizes the role of
GAS in the development of production-line equip-
ment for non-ferrous metals.
R. L. Wilcox, metallurgical engineer and Vice
President of Gerity-Michigan Corporation describes
the furnace and its application-" T h i s 1 8 - t o n
Gas-fired reverberatory furnace has the advan-
tage of extended service life, more efficient fuel
utilization, closer temperature control, simplified
alloy analysis."
Regardless of the type of heating operation or
heat-treating process, GAS is the ideal fuel for
any temperature requirement, or any production-
line application. The characteristics of GAS-
speed, flexibility, economy, controllability-are
useful features for every industrial heating need.
In view of rapid developments it's always worth-
while to keep your eye on what's new in Modern
Gas Equipment.
Gas-fired reverberatory furnace de-
signed and constructed especially for
melting and alloying zinc base die
casting alloys at Detroit Die Casting
Division.
