About Company

Cal-Miser aluminum holding furnaces combine energy efficiency, simple operation and low maintenance.

For more than 30 years, Cal-Miser has provided die casters with long-lasting furnaces known for performance, reliability and quality.

That's why die casters across North America choose Cal-Miser gas-fired aluminum holding furnaces.

Energy Efficiency

Cal-Miser’s direct heating method reduces heat loss without affecting metal quality. Side-by-side comparisons show energy reductions of up to 75%.

Low Maintenance

All of the mechanical components are inside the cabinet to keep out dust for reduced maintenance and improved reliability.

Operational Flexibility

The compact design of Cal-Miser furnaces makes them easy to set up or move. Furnace height is adjustable and dip out can be done on either side for efficient use of personnel.

Our Management Team

Drew S. Debrey

Drew Debrey, president, has more than 25 years experience in the die casting industry. He began working with Cal-Miser in 1981 during the design and patenting process of the aluminum melting system and has been president since 2007. Drew was also president of Quad Cast, Inc., Moline, Illinois, which used Cal-Miser furnaces. He was involved in the prototyping of different designs including melter-holders, bull ladles and central stack melters. During his industry career, Drew served on the Board of Governors of the North American Die Casting Association (NADCA) and later as NADCA chairman. He has visited die casting operations in Spain, Germany, France, Japan and China and understands the competition being faced by North American manufacturers.

John McBride

John McBride, vice president, has more than 25 years experience in the die casting furnace industry. His career started at Pyxis Refractories, performing all aspects of design, construction and repair of melting systems for numerous industries.

Andrew Debrey

Andrew Debrey (1922-2007), founder and creator of the Cal-Miser furnace, developed the concept while running his own die casting operation (Quad Cast, Inc. in Moline, Illinois) At one point, the furnace brought energy consumption to one of the lowest recorded levels in a NADCA Energy Survey. He started building similar furnaces for other die casters in 1978 and later incorporated Cal-Miser in 1984. Mr. Debrey patented his furnace design of impinging the flame directly on the metal, which transfers heat from its source directly to the metal. This also keeps the heat off the refractory walls and prolongs the life of the furnace — unlike the old reverb furnaces in which the refractory walls were heated to radiate heat to the metal.
