Of the many papers written on methods of reducing
vacuum-furnace operating energy requirements, most tend to highlight one
specific furnace area. This article will outline various methods of reducing
energy requirements of several furnace functions.
Regularly scheduled maintenance of vacuum furnaces ensures a safe operational environment for the equipment and the people working with the furnace. There are a variety of vacuum-furnace components and concerns that need to be properly and periodically maintained
With the increasing concern relating to electrical power costs for operating vacuum furnaces, it has become essential that all aspects of furnace cycle parameters and hot-zone efficiencies be thoroughly considered.
