Abstract : The use of low-melting metal melts as operational media is illustrated by a number of examples in the field of thermal power engineering; foundry and heat treatment of metals; machine and instrument building and the glass industry. Except for a heat supply system in a Soviet metallurgical combine, using mercury or a sodium and potassium melt as heat carriers, all the models or systems presented are of American or British origin. They include: heat treatment and bright annealing furnaces; a system for cooling the valve of an internal combustion engine; a high-sensitive mercury bearing; electromagnetic pumps for the transportation of liquid metals, and the production of high-quality plate glass with the use of a molten metal bath. The author concludes that the wide use of liquid-metal melts as heat carriers will be only possible, when the problem concerning the operational capacity of materials being in contact with the melts has been solved.
