Currently available as part as an entire studio kit.

The MiniMelt model has a 15kg capacity melting pot with a melt time of approx. two hours, depending upon how much glass is loaded and gas pressure. The pot (crucible) 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 crucible, which will need to be replaced after 40–100 melts. Some repair and cleaning work will be required from time to time, depending upon interior “accident” rate.

MiniMelt furnaces are handmade from stainless steel to ensure they will not rust as they may be exposed to rain occasionally, and have swivel wheels front and back for maneuverability. This means your furnace is for life!  The MiniMelt can be disassembled easily. The trolley base and wheels can be detached from the main frame sit alongside it in a small van or large car neatly.
