Elevator kiln for sintering ceramic parts. System includes air pre-heat, forced air cooling and automatic exhaust with three zones for very tight control of the temperature profile.
Elevator kiln for sintering ceramic components. An external air pre-heater assists in the de-binding process and helps maintain a closely controlled ramp up. Forced air cooling insures a controlled cool down.
Elevator Kilns for dielectric capacitors, firing to 1350 °C. Working dimensions 16” high x 17” diameter. Furnace bases are on removable mobile carts for easy loading. Furnace lining is removable for ease of maintenance.
Vertical and horizontal split tube laboratory test furnaces, custom designed with cycle counting and air cooling.
Electric heating chamber for rotary kiln, 168 kW, 1800 °F operating temperature, 48” diameter x 15ft long chamber.
Elevator Kiln for firing high alumina ceramic parts to 1700 °C. Control system including strip chart recorder.
Pit Furance with R.O.B. Elements Pit furnace with R.O.B. elements in the walls and coils in the floor.
