Commercial Heat Treater Orders Vacuum Furnace
Remix S.A. of Poland received an order for a new horizontal vacuum furnace designed to carry out high-pressure quenching in inert gas at 10 bar followed by vacuum tempering. The furnace is scheduled to be delivered to a commercial heat-treating plant in the U.S. in 2016. The dimensions of the furnace’s heating chamber measure 910 x 910 x 1220 mm (36 x 36 x 48 inches), ensuring effective treatment even at maximum load capacity of 3,000 kg (6,615 pounds). Workpieces of varying dimensions will be processed in the furnace, which features a four-zone system of cooling nozzles. Remix is also currently working on a pit furnace for gas nitriding due to be commissioned for the same customer in 2016.
