Minimelt Mobile

Our Minimelt model currently available is the “Mobile”.

The “Mobile” has a 15kg capacity melting pot with a melt time of approx. two hours, depending upon how much glass is loaded. The pot is bespoke-made, an oval shape and slightly tipped at the base, to allow for run-off when emptying. The drum above can be lifted off to access the pot, which will need to be replaced after 40–80 melts. Some repair/cleaning work will be required from time to time, depending upon interior “accident” rate.

Minimelts are made from stainless steel and treated steel (plated) to ensure they will not rust, as they may be exposed to rain occasionally, and have swivel wheels front and back for manoeuvrability.  The Mobile Minimelt can be disassembled. The trolley base and wheels can be detached from the main frame sit alongside it in a small van or large car neatly.
