Ipsen has recently shipped an H3636 2 bar TurboTreater® furnace to a commercial heat treatment company in the southeastern U.S. The state-of-the-art, high-temperature furnace includeds a 2-inch thick carbon composite/graphite felt hot zone with a nominal work zone of 24” x 24” x 36” (610 mm x 610 mm x 914 mm) and a gross load capacity of 1,500 pounds (680 kg), configured for 460 volts, 60 hertz, 3 phase. The furnace is equipped with the user-friendly CompuVac® Supervisory Control system, as well as nitrogen and argon Partial Pressure system.
Leading the industry through the use of patented mechanical features such as the Ipsen unique quarter-twist graphite heating element support hanger, which provides metallic support for ceramics; the flared locking rim for molybdenum cooling gas nozzles, which secures them in place into a rounded extrusion in the plenum wall; and the cooling system design, which generates the highest heat transfer coefficient of any vacuum furnace on the market.
The convenient and efficient TurboTreater line operates as a “build-your-own” furnace, allowing customers to order furnaces specified to their unique needs. Possible modifications include variations on features such as the hot zone insulation package, heating elements, pumping systems, cooling gases, plant voltage, control system and loaders. This allows for the line to be used for a number of processing capabilities including: hardening, annealing, surface treatment, brazing, coating and tempering. These alterations, along with Ipsen’s simplified installation, start-up, operation and troubleshooting.
