RAYTEQ TO UNVEIL NEW ValueLine™ SERIES ELECTRIC MELTING FURNACES WITH INTERACTIVE KW DEMAND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AT CASTEXPO 2013


Healdsburg, California. RAYTEQ LLC will display its new ValueLine™ series of compact electric resistance melting furnaces with unique hybrid digital/analog controls for melting aluminum alloys right at the casting line, thereby eliminating substantial energy losses from hot metal transporting, launders and holding furnaces in central melting systems. Advantages over conventional fuel fired melting include higher energy efficiency, less metal loss, fewer scrap castings, no air quality issues, no operator heat stress, and no noise.

With its new ValueLine™ Series round furnaces joining its established DC Series square furnaces, Rayteq now offers thirteen standard electric furnace models with melt rates ranging from 275 lbs/hr to 1000 lbs/hr and capacities from 550 lbs. to 4,200 lbs., aluminum.

High furnace melting rates in a compact space are made possible by Rayteq's unique high power density heating elements featuring new life-enhancing materials technology. Rayteq also supplies exact heating element replacements incorporating this new technology for many other electric furnace makes.

Rayteq's new ValueLine series electric furnaces are now available in seven standard sizes ranging in capacity from 550 lbs. to 3,000 lbs. aluminum, and are supplied ready to operate with Rayteq's Fleet Commander™ interactive demand management system (IDMS™) which achieves additional utility cost savings by minimizing electric furnace fleet kW demand without impairing production rates or casting quality. Rayteq's Fleet Commander™ software operates with all Rayteq electric melters as well as conventional electric furnaces equipped with Fleet Commander™ retrofit kits. Fleet Commander IDMS systems are currently operating electric furnace fleets in California and Missouri with new systems soon to be installed in Illinois and New York State.

Both Rayteq's new ValueLine™ series electric furnaces and Fleet Commander™ IDMS software will be featured in Rayteq's Booth No. 2939 at CastExpo 2013 in St. Louis, Missouri, April 6 - 9. Additional information is available at Rayteq's Web Site: www.Rayteq.com

SKS DIE CASTING PURCHASES RAYTEQ INTERACTIVE KW DEMAND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Healdsburg, California. RAYTEQ LLC announces that SKS Die Casting & Machining, Alameda, California, has purchased Rayteq's new Fleet Commander™ interactive demand management system (IDMS™) to minimize the kW demand of its fleet of electric resistance melting furnaces without impairing production rates or casting quality. As part of a recent campaign to reduce its utility expenses, SKS elected to equip five of its existing electric melters with Rayteq's Fleet Commander™ retrofit control panels which will enable their furnaces to be controlled by Rayteq's new Fleet Commander™ IDMS™ software.

Rayteq's Fleet Commander™ IDMS™ software will be featured in Rayteq's Booth No. 402 at the upcoming 2011 NADCA Tabletop Exhibition in Columbus, Ohio, along with its new high-powered, compact, Fleet Commander-ready DC Series electric furnaces that melt right at the die casting machine.

RAYTEQ TO UNVEIL ADVANCED ELECTRIC MELTING FURNACES WITH INTERACTIVE KW DEMAND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AT DIE CASTING SHOW

Healdsburg, California. RAYTEQ LLC, located in the heart of California's Sonoma wine country, will display its new line of high-powered, compact electric resistance melting furnaces with unique hybrid digital/analog controls for melting aluminum and magnesium alloys right at the die casting machine, thereby eliminating substantial energy losses from hot metal transporting, launders and holding furnaces in central melt systems. Advantages over conventional fuel fired melting include higher energy efficiency, less metal loss, fewer scrap castings, no air quality issues, no operator heat stress, and no noise.

High furnace melting rates in a compact space are made possible by Rayteq's unique high power density heating elements featuring new life-enhancing materials technology. Rayteq also supplies exact heating element replacements incorporating this new technology for other electric furnace makes.

Rayteq's new DC Series electric furnaces are available in six standard sizes ranging in capacity from 700 lbs. to 3,250 lbs. aluminum, and are supplied ready to operate with Rayteq's Fleet Commander™ interactive demand management system (IDMS™) which achieves additional utility cost savings by minimizing electric furnace fleet kW demand without impairing production rates or casting quality. Rayteq's Fleet Commander™ software operates with all Rayteq electric melters as well as conventional electric furnaces equipped with Fleet Commander™ retrofit kits.

Three new Rayteq DC Series electric furnaces and an older Dynarad electric furnace, retrofitted to accommodate Rayteq's Fleet Commander™ IDMS™, are currently operating under the control of Fleet Commander™ IDMS™ software at A & B Die Casting, Hercules, California. Frank B. Smith, President & CEO of Rayteq, Bob Dathe, President of A & B Die Casting, and Matthew Smith, Exec. VP & Engineering Manager of Rayteq will give a technical paper describing all the new technology entitled Bringing Back Electric Melting at the 2011 NADCA Congress & Tabletop Exhibition, September 19 to 21 in Columbus, Ohio.
