Lucifer Furnaces, Inc. has delivered a high temperature furnace for use with inert atmosphere to a leading domestic manufacturer of firearms with ISO9001 certification. The 3027GT Model, rated for operation up to 2750°F, is equipped with silicon carbide rod type heating elements mounted above and below the hearth providing uniform heat.
Designed with a continuously welded furnace shell, the roof plate and door are gasketed to form a gas tight shell for operation with a positive flow of inert protective atmosphere. The 12"x12"x12" chamber is ruggedly constructed, lined with firebrick and mineral wool block insulation. A silicon carbide plate mounted on ceramic piers provides a flat work surface supporting the work load while permitting thermal transfer from the floor elements.
The furnace was supplied with a Honeywell digital time proportioning temperature control, selector switches, and tapped power transformer for energy efficiency and longer heating element life. A double-pivot horizontal swing plug door with gasket seals against furnace faceplate, reduces outside door temperature and keeps the hot face away from the operator at all times.
