Solar Atmospheres of Western PA constructed a climate-controlled environment for the daily operation of its new all-metal hot-zoned vacuum furnace. The critical climate within this room is controlled utilizing a high-quality HVAC system, which is equipped with dehumidifiers and customizable thermostats. A heavy-duty insulation package that helps manage and stabilize temperature and humidity around the clock was installed. The space was also built to produce a slight positive-pressure environment, which will help eliminate dust and debris from entering the set-up and fixturing areas.

Both medical and aerospace contractors are continuing to demand that environmental conditions be controlled, processes validated and the risk of foreign-object debris (FOD) be totally eliminated. This environmentally controlled room will enable Solar Atmospheres of Western PA to pristinely thermally process critical components.
