Lindberg/MPH, a leading manufacturer of heat-treat furnaces, shipped a rod overbend box furnace with an automated load transfer table to the aerospace industry.

This furnace will heat-treat parts under an inert atmosphere.

This heat-treating furnace has a maximum temperature rating of 2,000°F and a load capacity of 6,000 pounds. It features a workspace of 36” W x 96” D x 36” H and is designed for a nitrogen atmosphere. A nitrogen gas flow meter controls the atmospheric conditions.

The box furnace includes an automated load transfer table. Under the table, five fans with a variable-frequency drive provide accelerated cooling. The load table uses a pusher/puller mechanism to move parts trays in and out of the furnace.

The furnace’s radiant heating system uses heavy-gauge alloy rod overbend heating elements mounted along the side walls and the floor. Two Watlow F4T controllers control and record the furnace temperature, which allows for seven zones of heating. The box furnace also meets Class 3 temperature uniformity of ±15°F at 1,000°F – 1,800°F.

“This furnace is designed to heat treat up to 6,000 pounds under a nitrogen atmosphere. The automated load table is customized to accelerate cooling when the part trays are unloaded, said Ken Constant, heat treating product manager.

Unique features of this rod overbend box furnace include:

Two Watlow F4T controllers for temperature control and recording.
Seven heating zones.
Class 3 uniformity of ±15°F at 1,000°F – 1,800°F.
High-limit controller to prevent temperature from exceeding set-point.
Automated load table with accelerated cooling.
Designed for applications requiring a nitrogen atmosphere.
Radiant heating system using rod overbend heating elements.
Maximum gross workload of 6,000 pounds.
