Uniqueness of this project lies in the fact that the unit has the combined heating system consisting of radiation and convection subsystems. The first subsystem allows to warm-up the fireproof cartridge up to 650-700 °C between the cycles of casting. The second subsystem performs warming-up of the volume of the ceramic foam filter immediately prior to the beginning of casting.
