Fabrication of a Steel Smelting Pot for the Aluminum Industry

A local aluminum industry customer approached West Kentucky Steel to replace a steel smelting pot. To save the customer time, we copied the existing pot, and created a brand-new pot out of A36 mild steel, complete with black enamel finish. In addition, we equipped the pot with a rectangular tubing and channel iron base frame to accommodate forklifts.

West Kentucky Steel cut and welded this 1500 lb. pot using a torch and welding wire. The 1" thick steel incorporates holes for ventilation to allow pressure relief. The customer was extremely satisfied with the final 3' wide by 2' tall by 8' high steel smelting pot.
