Product Details

Formerly Branded as Kerr Electro-Melt

Now branded as the Ventura-Melt

New Brand-Same Machine!


Kerr had 3 generations* of melting furnaces branded as Electro-Melts over the years.  The last generation, and the most reliable, were the Electro-Melts manufactured in Italy.  We are excited to once again be able to offer these well proven electric melting furnaces, now branded as Ventura-Melts. 


These are the large 3 kilogram (100 troy ounce) capacity gold "Maxi" Ventura-Melts Electric Melting Furnace in either 120V or 230V.  Also available in a 1 kilogram (30 troy ounce) capacity gold "Standard" Electric Melting Furnace, in either 120V or 230V. See below.


These are the exact same machines as the Kerr Maxi Electro-Melts.  All parts are interchangeable, as all parts are exactly the same, so if you own the last generation 3 kg (100 troy ounce) Kerr Electro-Melt, model numbers 35224 in 120V (35225 in 230V), you will now be able to source parts in the unlikely event that you will ever need them. The last generation Italian made Kerr Electro-Melts were extremely reliable.  We sold hundreds of them and have had zero requests for spare parts.


Choose from 2 voltages:

122.336 120V (Formerly Kerr model 35224)
122.336-230V (Formerly Kerr model 35225) 


The 100 troy oz. gold capacity Ventura-Melt has digital controls with a built in programmer so you can achieve perfect melts every time. The programmer allows you to set precise temperatures for your melts, a big improvement over the previous generations manual hi-low controls that required constant observation least you overshoot and ruin your melt and your element. These Automatic versions, when used properly (please read instructions), extends element life and is perfect for production use in casting or refining operations. The Ventura-Melt with automatic controls is easy to program and simple to pour. The Ventura-Melt will achieve 982oC/1800oF in 31 minutes and has a 3100 gram/100 troy oz. gold capacity and a silver capacity of 2600 gram/83 troy oz. Maximum temperature: 1100oC/2012oF. Ventura-Melts, just like the Kerr Electro-Melts, are made in Italy.
