Dross Skimming Machines

Mechatherm can design and supply bespoke dross skimming machines to suit both our existing and new customers' casthouse furnaces.

Our skimming machines can be designed for both single furnace and multiple furnace installations. They are designed to traverse on embedded shop floor rails for skimming in front of the furnace door openings.

Operators can control the skimming machine in either manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic modes depending on the layout and furnace configurations. They also come with features such as grab and lift forks to pick up and carry dross pans both to and away from the furnaces. The machines can also be designed to match any existing floor embedded rails which are shared with any scrap charging equipment.
