Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of a Heavy Duty Box Furnace to a global provider of material and technology solutions. This box furnace will be used for processing glass. The furnace design was customized to the customer’s specifications by moving the heating elements that are typically designed to be mounted on the roof and floor of the furnace to the sidewalls. This design change was necessary to prevent any melted glass from spilling onto the elements during processing.
The maximum temperature rating of this box furnace is 1500°C and has work chamber dimensions of 12” W x 14” D x 12” H. This heavy-duty box furnace has insulating vestibules and is equipped with directly hinged, insulated plug doors. The insulating door plug serves as a convenient loading platform in the open position. An internal vent located in the top center of the vestibule aids in dissipating the initial heat surge that occurs when the door is opened. Heating elements are horizontally positioned on either side of the heating chamber. The heating chamber is constructed of high-temperature graded insulation, providing excellent thermal efficiency.
“At Lindberg/MPH we know our customer’s applications require tight temperature uniformity. This heat treat box furnace provided precise temperature uniformity, rapid response rate, dense load capability, and process repeatability which were all essential to our customer’s process.”- Kelley Shreve, Applications Engineer
Unique features of this Lindberg/MPH box furnace include:
- High efficiency insulation. Double shell construction
- Silicon carbide elements horizontally positioned on sidewalls of the chamber.
- Door opens to a horizontal position and a spring-loaded mechanism…
