L&L Special Furnace Co. shipped a model FB series fiber-lined box furnace to Goodrich Aerostructure’s Mexicali, Mexico, production facility. The furnace will be used for processing aerospace components. The FB model series is designed around AMS 2750D specifications for pyrometry and is suited to critical applications requiring proven temperature uniformity of ±5°F. It has working dimensions of 72 inches x 72 inches x 96 inches with a load capacity of 3,200 pounds. As part of the system, L&L provided a motorized loader to facilitate material handling.
A convection fan ensures excellent uniformity at low temperatures. For this model furnace, L&L’s modular design allows disassembly to make shipping practical. This is the second furnace of this kind purchased by Goodrich for this plant. L&L specializes in batch production furnaces and ovens for applications requiring high uniformity and controlled atmosphere.
