Tenova Core has been contracted by Metallix Refining Inc. to design and supply a custom roller-hearth-type furnace. The furnace will be installed as part of the precious-metal recovery process at Metallix’s Greenville, N.C., refinery. The controlled-atmosphere furnace will feature a state-of the-art radiant-tube combustion system for energy-efficient heating, entry and exit vestibules as well as an advanced Tenova Core process-control system.

The furnace will arrive at the site preassembled for reduced installation costs. The project scope also includes an afterburner system for environmental control.
