The type of hydrogen used in heat treatment furnaces is referred to as dry hydrogen and is 98 – % pure. Endothermic Atmospheres The protective gases used in furnace atmospheres are usually a mixture of hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), and trace amounts of water.

This article discusses the principle, coil design, types and operation of a vacuum induction furnace. It describes the operation parameters that should be considered during the functioning of the induction furnace. These models are particularly suitable for continuous heat treatment at operation temperatures up to °C.

The modular design allows adjustment to different length and width requirements. The heating elements are mounted on only one side of the furnace and can be changed individually during operation. Vacuum furnaces are used in a wide range of applications in both production industries and research laboratories.

At temperatures below °C, a vacuum furnace is commonly used for the heat treatment of steel alloys. Many general heat treating applications involve the hardening and tempering of a steel part to make it strong and tough through service.

Whether you need a furnace for heat treating, brazing, stress relieving, normalizing, annealing, tempering or sintering, Solar delivers a solution that shines.
