Lucifer Furnaces shipped two heat-treating units to Ames True Temper Hardware, a leader in non-powered lawn and garden tools. Both the heat-treating furnace and the industrial oven will be used to bring the company’s heat treating in-house at its Harrisburg, Pa., facility, where the primary product is wheelbarrows. Both units have chamber sizes of 12 inches x 14 inches x 18 inches with 4.5 inches of energy-efficient, lightweight firebrick insulation and mineral wool block.
A ceramic hearth plate supports the workload and protects the floor brick. The oven features a high-volume fan mounted through the rear for uniformity. The new furnace is replacing an old Lucifer furnace that was purchased 43 years ago.
