Solar Manufacturing Ships Large Horizontal Vacuum Furnace

All-Metal Hot Zone Horizontal Vacuum Furnace

Souderton, PA, May 14, 2018 – Solar Manufacturing recently shipped a large horizontal front loading vacuum furnace to a titanium manufacturer and fabricator located in the Midwest region of the United States.  The furnace includes a molybdenum shielded hot zone and heating elements, with a work zone size of 54″ (1.37m) wide X 54″ (1.37m) high X 144″ (3.66m) deep and a weight capacity of 7,500 pounds (3,400 kg).  The furnace is specifically designed for processing titanium alloys for the aerospace, medical, and other industries.  It is fully compliant to aerospace specification AMS2750E.  The large work zone size and heavy weight capacity of the furnace requires safe and effortless loading and unloading of the furnace, accomplished with a robust, motorized loading truck.  The furnace is capable of processing in an argon atmosphere or in high vacuum in the 10-6 Torr range with a 35″ Varian diffusion pump assisted by a Leybold booster pump and a Leybold dry mechanical roughing pump.  The furnace incorporates the new SolarVac Polaris® control system with large HMI graphic touchscreen overview.  Programming capabilities include gas quench rate control up to two bar pressure with an AB variable frequency drive.  Precise temperature control up to 2400° F (1316° C) is accomplished utilizing digital power trimming technology.
