 QuikMelt Pro Gold Melting Furnace 

The QuikMelt Pro top loading kiln is very portable and works effectively with  gold, silver, lead, copper, zinc, and more.  With its ultra-light 10 lb compact design (6" x 6" x 12"), the QuikMelt Pro offers the best of functionality and portability. This furnace is designed with a lightweight, but extremely durable Gemcolite Alumina Fiber insert.  The composition of alumina-silicate, alumina and mullite fibers that include both inorganic and organic binders, are excellent for handling strength and material integrity at high temperatures.

The Quik Melt Pro Kiln comes with 1 pair of tongs and 1 graphite crucible. There is only one size of QuickMelt furnace, but based on the amount of concentrates you want to process at one time, you can select a smaller or larger crucible (4 sizes) that fits inside the furnace. You choose the size crucible you need. They are not inter-changeable.  The base price of $379 includes a 10 troy ounce crucible, but larger sizes are available for an additional charge -- add $20 to the base price for a 30 troy ounce crucible, add $40 for a 60 troy ounce, add $60 for a 100 troy ounce.   FREE SHIPPING in Continental USA!

Do you have gold mixed with black sand or other impurities? If so, think in terms of thirds. Mix one third flux with one third gold concentrates and place in crucible. The other third is simply extra space in the crucible for expansion and stirring. You can easily open the top of the QuickMeltPro furnace to stir during the smelting process. This will not slow down the melting or lower the temperature. After everything is melted to a red hot "honey" consistency, pour into your graphite mold. Impurities in the flux will rise to the surface as it hardens. Your gold will form at the bottom.  Because it is top loading, the QuikMelt kiln is recommended for smelting gold, silver, etc. that you want to stir as it heats.

If you want a furnace with the capability to inter-change different sizes of crucibles, consider the QuikMelt Pro DELUXE kiln with crucible Kits. If you do not need to work with different sizes of crucibles, stick with the QuikMelt Pro described above.

CAUTION: The stainless steel jacket on this kiln will get hot enough to burn your skin when the furnace is heated. Therefore it is important to be extremely careful when working close to the kiln. Even after the power has been turned off, it will remain very hot for a considerable amount of time.
