Horizontal Furnace Ordered from Singapore

With the partnership of CHS-ASIA, Solar Manufacturing announces an order for a new horizontal loading vacuum furnace from a company in Singapore.

Featuring a high efficiency, 2″ thick graphite insulated hot zone for operating temperatures up to 2650°F,  the furnace’s work zone measures 42″ wide x 42″ high x 48″ deep, with thermal uniformity meeting AMS 2750D standards.  A gross load capacity will hold 3500 pounds, with low-watt density graphite heating elements heating work loads rapidly while improved, tapered graphite gas nozzles will direct quench gas onto the work load for optimum gas cooling.

A 35″ Varian diffusion pumping system is used for high vacuum applications up to 10-6 Torr and the external gas quench system will consist of a 100 HP motor, a Robinson fan wheel, heat exchanger, and diffuser.  The electrical control cabinet will house the SolarVac 3000 instrumentation which includes the Allen-Bradley PanelView and the Eurotherm 6180A paperless graphic recorder for state-of-the-art operator interface and control.  A Hunterdon 255 KVA Variable Reactance Transformer will power the furnace hot zone, balanced across the three phase power source.

This is Solar Manufacturing’s second international order this quarter.
