Alloy Charging System

Alloy charging systems are used to automate charging your furnace and are designed per customer requirements. The alloy charging system can be belt-driven, vibratory, or pneumatic. They are designed to dispense the required amount of alloy based on weight or time.

Carpenter Brothers, Inc. is proud to represent JOEST’s alloy charging system. The system is comprised of a hopper assembly that sits on load weighing cells, an electromagnetically driven vibratory feeder, and a controls package. The system is assembled on a structural skid, which allows it to be relocated quickly and does not require any anchoring to the floor. Material is filled into the holding hoppers. The load weighing cells weigh the material inside of the hope. Material is fed out by the vibratory dosing feeder below the hopper until the desired weight is reached.

About Us

Carpenter Brothers, Inc. is the leading supplier of equipment, consumables, and technical expertise for the metal casting industry. Founded in 1917, by Everett and Milton Carpenter, the brothers were able to use their unique foundry experiences to solve the problem of the day: a reliable sand source.  They got their foot in the door by selling natural bonded molding sand, which was mined by hand, loaded into horse-drawn carts, and then delivered to customers.  Not only did they sell the sand, but their technical expertise was readily available for all customers, big or small, to help manufacture the best castings. After surviving The Great Depression, Carpenter Brothers, Inc. slowly increased the number of products it distributed and expanded its sales territory into what it is today.


Carpenter Brothers, Inc. has committed itself to its customer's success by providing exceptional service to go along with the superior products and equipment they supply.  With multiple warehouses around the United States we can get you the products you need when you need them.
