Ipsen delivered a H5448 2-bar quench TurboTreater® horizontal vacuum furnace to Nevada Heat Treating. The furnace has a work zone of 36 inches wide x 36 inches high x 48 inches deep with a gross load weight capability of 3,500 pounds at 2400°F. The unit offers reduced power consumption, compact floor print and quick hot-zone removal in less than one hour for maintenance. Nevada Heat Treating purchased the furnace, which was delivered eight weeks from receipt of the purchase order, to service a large aerospace contract.

The furnace system includes graphite-heating-element assembly and an energy-efficient 2-inch-thick graphite thermal-insulation pack composed of a carbon-composite hot face backed by four layers of graphite felt. The Ipsen CompuVac™ control system offers many features, including DigiTrim automatic multi-zone tuning feature, virtually unlimited recipe storage, real-time and historical trending and modem capability for remote diagnostics. The unit is designed and engineered to meet AMS 2750D code requirements.
