Induction Gold and Silver Melting Systems & Equipment

Gold Melting FurnaceInduction melting systems are used for the gold, silver, and copper melting from High and Low Production Mining facilities, Precious Metals Refining entities, and precious metals wholesale and retail buyers looking to melt their metals for more accurate assays.

Silver and gold melting induction furnaces offer environmental benefits of casting precious metals over traditional methods of melting. As a form of Green Technology induction gold melting systems, do not put off any harmful emissions into the atmosphere, as heat is being generated by the alternating magnetic current into graphite or SIC crucible. Other advantages of silver and gold melting induction furnaces are, fast heat-up times, frequency stirring for more homogenous melts and induction melting technology that does not heat up the atmosphere the user is working in. The only heat being generated is the heat from the actual melt.


RDO supplies several series of gold & silver induction melting systems for melting gold, silver, and copper. The Shuttle Electric Melters are an entry-level system designed for small shop melting. This gold melting induction furnace has a long life and provides an accurate temperature measurement. Typical melt times in a gold melting induction furnace for a full load of material is about 45 minutes.

Gold Melting FurnaceThe EasyMelt Induction bench top melter offers fast melt times for small batch gold, silver and copper. This piece of gold & silver melting equipment is perfect for both low and high-volume melting, and the compact design allows each model to fit easily on a bench top. The EasyMelt can melt 2 kg of gold in approximately 10 minutes and can be used for repetitive melts all day long.

For larger volume melts, RDO offers their “LC” and “S” Lift and Pour series smelters.  These melting systems can be set up for processing up to 4, 6, 10 and 12 kg of gold using power supplies from 5 to 12 kW of power for fast melt times.  A full volume of gold will melt is approximately 10 minutes and the volumes for silver and copper will be less than the gold volume.  The LC Lift and Pour series is highly flexible, where a customer can purchase a 10 or 12 kg machine and purchase a smaller induction coil that can be installed in minutes for smaller batch melting.

For larger volumes yet, RDO’s Tilt Pour induction melting systems include the LC Tilt Series.  The LC Tilt series is available in 15, 25, 50 and 125 kW of power and capacities of 15, 40, 100 and 150 kg of gold.  The LC tilt systems are equipped with touch screen control panels to operate the system and monitor the critical operating data.  The 15- and 25-kW gold melting equipment systems operate with a motorized tilt via joystick control, which can be operated at the furnace or remotely, while the 50- and 125-kW systems are tilted with a hydraulic tilt system.
