powder can be both dry and steamer dewaxed with excellent result. As a general rule the larger the flask the longer the dewax time. Dry dewax in a furnace should take target at about 230c. For a 6″x4″ jewelry mold, 3 hours will be sufficient to remove the bulk of the wax and 2 hours should be sufficient for steamer dewax .
Burnout cycles will depend very much on the size of the flask. The larger the flask or the waxes therein the longer and more gradual the burnout must be. For 6 ” x4 ” cast will only need 12 hours. In addition the furnace must have a good supply of breeze in arrange to achieve a clean burnout. Carbon deposits from the wax must combine with oxygen to form CO2 and thus excape through the pores of the investment. If after Burnout your cast is a gray tinge you need to get more atmosphere into the furnace-do not increase the temperature, this will merely damage the investment .
After completion of burnout, the flask should be cooled to proper vomit temperature. The flask can then be cast by either centrifugal or vacuum casting methods .
temperature of the last 1-2 hours of burnout must be adjusted at chastise temperature for casting. If held for less than 1 hour, the congress of racial equality of the flasks will be at a much higher temperature, and may result in metal model reaction.
