Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems shipped a high-temperature pusher furnace to a supplier of specialty tungsten alloy products in the eastern United States.

The furnace is designed for high-temperature sintering with operating temperature capabilities up to 2,750°F (1,510°C). The system is electrically heated using molybdenum elements and uses the latest in refractory materials for efficient operation. The pusher system processes trays 8 inches wide x 12 inches long under 100 percent hydrogen atmosphere and includes an automated return conveyor for effective loading and unloading. Gasbarre was selected as the equipment provider based on their extensive knowledge of high-temperature sintering and proven ability to service and support the customer.

With locations in Livonia, Michigan; Cranston, Rhode Island; and St. Marys, Pennsylvania, Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems has been designing, manufacturing, and servicing a full line of industrial thermal processing equipment for nearly 50 years. Gasbarre’s equipment is designed for each customer’s process by experienced engineers and metallurgists.
