Solar Manufacturing recently shipped a 10-bar gas-quenching vacuum furnace to a captive heat treater in New England. The Model HFL-3836-10IQ-VC features high-pressure gas quenching and vacuum carburizing. The furnace has a graphite insulated hot zone with a work area measuring 24” wide x 24” high x 36” deep and a load weight capacity up to 2,000 pounds. It also has a maximum operating temperature of 2,400°F, temperature uniformity of ±10°F, and is AMS2750F compliant. The furnace is equipped with the state-of-the-art SolarVac® Polaris Control System with carburizing software.
“The research and development done with our sister company, Solar Atmospheres, on the alloy selection, carburizing, and recipe process development was instrumental to the sale of the furnace,” said Jason Davidson, Solar’s Northeast regional sales manager. “Our customer ultimately decided on Solar Manufacturing due to our dynamic relationship with Solar Atmospheres, which provided an invaluable resource for the end user.”
