The Royal Canadian Mint has purchased a new HPQ furnace from SECO/WARWICK ( www.secowarwick.com) for its die manufacturing facility in Winnipeg. The 15.0 VPT-4025/24HV is an advanced cold wall, front-loading high vacuum furnace incorporating high-pressure gas quenching. The furnace is 24 inches wide x 16 inches high x 24 inches long and has a load capacity of 660 pounds with a maximum design temperature of 2400°F.

Durable graphite insulation and heaters provide long, reliable service in this heavy-duty furnace, which is of a compact design with an internal recirculation blower and heat exchanger. The pumping system, power supply and cooling systems are generously sized to enable a wide range of industrial heat treatment applications, including quench hardening and tempering, degassing, annealing, and solution heat treatment. This is the second HPQ SECO/WARWICK has provided for the Royal Canadian Mint. The first is installed in Ottawa.

SECO/WARWICK manufactures industrial heat processing equipment including heat-treat furnaces, vacuum-furnace technology, atmosphere generators and aluminum reverb melting and holding systems.
