Industrial Ovens & Furnaces

Industrial furnaces and ovens take many shapes, sizes and forms and may work in continuous or intermittent modes. They may may be front opening, top loading, horizontal, vertical, elevator hearth or take any number of other configurations. Also, depending on their application and the type of material that they are treating, may operate using different atmospheres from air to nitrogen to vacuum which will be dictated by the desired outcome. Also depending on the temperature required and operating atmosphere, the heat source may from gas burners to electric elements to induction heating, or even other more exotic methods such as microwave heating. Industrial ovens generally operate at lower temperatures to furnaces. Their applications may vary from metal heat treatment, to coatings and surface treatment, through to sintering of ceramics and even curing or rubbers.
