Abstract: A device for charging and discharging a tilting melting furnace with a reable crucible, of a type including, in particular, a shovel in the form of a gutter with a circular section in the shape of a segment of a circle designed to introduce a crucible and a compact cylindrical smelting charge into a tilting furnace in the horizontal position, and means for moving the shovel. The inside radius of the cross section of the shovel is at least equal to the radius of the cylindrical charge, and the outside radius is less than the radius of the crucible, and it also includes means for rotating the shovel about its axis.
