Solar Manufacturing Commissions 24 Foot Vacuum Car Bottom Furnace in Russia

Solar Manufacturing recently completed the shipment and commissioning of a model HCB-84288-2EQ vacuum car bottom furnace to VSMPO-AVISMA Company in Verkhnaya Salda, Russia. This furnace is capable of processing 50,000 pound loads of titanium forgings and plate for aerospace and medical products.

“What makes this furnace different than all the other heavy duty vacuum car bottom furnaces we have built is the X-Y axis loading system.” said Peter Reh, vice president of sales. “Two independent transfer cars travel on a common railguided carriage. The carriage positions one or the other transfer car in the front of the furnace to load or unload charges into the workzone. Each transfer car is capable of handling 50,000 pounds each. Moving and positioning the carriage and both transfer cars is accomplished using a small handheld wireless transmitter” added Reh.

The Model HCB-84288-2EQ is a horizontal, car bottom vacuum heat treating furnace specifically designed for large, heavy loads. Its graphite insulated hot zone is rated for a maximum temperature of 2250°F. The work zone measures 54″ H X 54″ W X 288″ Long. It also features dual vacuum pumping systems consisting of two 35″ diffusion pumps, dual high velocity gas quenching systems with variable speed drives, and the SolarVac 3000 control system.

Whether you need a vacuum furnace for heat treating, brazing, stress relieving, normalizing, annealing, tempering or sintering, Solar delivers a solution. To learn more about Solar’s diverse product line, contact Peter Reh, vice president of sales, at 267-384-5040 x509 or
