How you go about melting gold has a lot to do with the quantity of gold you will be working with. If you’ve got a couple of jewelry items and a small decoration, you’ll probably want to melt gold using some boric acid and a blow torch. But, if you’ve got larger quantities or if you’re planning to melt gold on a regular basis, you’ll want to invest in gold melting equipment that is more substantial to produce a more consistent end-product.
Simply put your gold in the crucible and then let the electromagnet do the rest. The whole process is programmable or, if you want, you can manually adjust the settings. A magnetic field generates an electrical current in the gold to build resistance and thus, heat. It’s the resistance to electricity within the gold itself and the corresponding heat that ultimately causes the gold to melt in the crucible. Because the machine does not have to generate heat itself, but only enough of a magnetic field to create the right amount of resistance, the whole process is surprisingly energy-efficient.
Induction furnaces offer the most advanced technology in gold melting equipment. The process utilized by the furnace provides precise and uniform heating of the gold as it is melting. Induction furnaces are extremely stable and provide consistent performance time after time.
