Steel Heat Treater Purchases Pit Furnace
Lindberg/MPH shipped an electrically heated cyclone pit furnace to a steel heat treater. The furnace, which has a maximum temperature rating of 1250°F, will be used for a heat-treating process on aircraft components. The work chamber measures 38 inches in diameter x 48 inches deep and is constructed with an alloy liner backed with 7 inches of block insulation.
The top-load furnace features a thermocartridge recirculating fan and solid-wall baffle for uniform heat distribution. The furnace fan utilizes a centrifugal-blower-type alloy blade and a 5-HP motor with belt and pulley drive system. The steel outer shell is constructed from heavy-gauge steel plate reinforced with structural-steel members.
This furnace will replace an existing Lindberg furnace at the heat treater’s facility.
