Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems shipped a 60” wide x 90” deep x 30” tall atmosphere box sintering furnace.
The batch sintering furnace will be installed at Mueller Brass Co., a major supplier of brass rod and forgings in the United States. The box furnace is designed with a maximum operating temperature of 1,650°F, a capacity of 14,000 pounds, and uses a nitrogen atmosphere. The system incorporates an Allen-Bradley PLC with SSi 9130 control and 12.1” HMI display. The indirect fired gas heating system incorporates parallel positioning control for efficiency and process flexibility. An integrated oxygen analyzer ensures proper furnace environment prior to heating. The accelerated gas cooling system improves floor-to-floor cycle time for the customer’s production needs.
