Lucifer Furnaces Inc. shipped a Red Devil dual-chamber heat-treating furnace to Anomatic Corp. of Newark, Ohio. With an upper hardening chamber of 9 inches high x 12 inches wide x 14 inches long and a lower tempering chamber with the same working dimensions, this unit is a complete heat-treating system with 7 kW of power. Both chambers feature a ceramic hearth plate for load support of 25 pounds per square feet of hearth area and are lined with 4.5 inches of combined lightweight firebrick and mineral-wool insulation for energy-efficient operation.
The upper chamber heats to 2200°F with easy-to-replace,
heavy-gauge, wire-wound heating elements in radiant panels. The lower draw
chamber heats to 1200°F with air recirculation provided by a rear-mounted, stainless
steel, high-volume CFM fan assembly. Each chamber is controlled independently
through Honeywell digital temperature controllers. Anomatic is a leading North
American supplier of anodized aluminum packaging.
