Superior Thermal Performance

The circular cross section of the furnace has a larger internal heat emitting surface area which allows quicker load recovery and a lower shell surface area that reduces wall losses.

Superior Temperature and Atmosphere Distribution

The circular design also eliminates eddies which would be caused by sharp corners and allows effective and uniform atmosphere circulation around and beneath the work basket ensuring uniform temperature and stable atmosphere conditions.

Design for Endurance

Carefully considered circuitry part specification, manufacturing method and acceptance criteria ensures long trouble free performance.

Equipment Features
Insulation

low thermal mass fibre insulation for rapid and uniform temperature recovery and atmosphere conditioning.

Atmosphere Circulation Fan

high alloy, rugged long life design, bung mounted.

Heating System

radiant tubes with bayonet electrical elements, gas or oil firing.

Vestibule Sealing

self adjusting positive sealing door with a supervised pilot and flame curtain.

Improved Productivity

reduced cycle times, higher productivity and lower operating costs.

Atmosphere Control

CO/CH4/CO2 analyser, Oxygen probe.

Effective Quenching

bi-directional, variable flow through propeller pumps within draft tubes and CFD designed baffle system ensure consistent hardness and reduced distortion.

Control Systems

versatile, expandable PLC system with a touch screen MMI and SCADA programming that supervises the cycle, temperature, atmosphere flow/ potential, mechanical movements and interlocks. Data acquisition of process parameters, alarm conditions & printout.

Cooling & Reheating

upper deck with atmosphere circulation for cooling the work basket in protective atmosphere. The system design allows cooling prior to reheating the same work basket.
