The furnace charger conduit permits accumulation of a sufficient quantity of scrap material contained above the surface of the molten metal so that when the weight balance between the column of scrap material and the specific gravity of the molten metal is overcome, the column of scrap metal automatically submerges itself further into the bath.
Initial trials have indicated that between 40-75% of molten metal weight/cu ft is required to continually submerge the column of scrap into the molten metal.
