Nationally recognized commercial heat-treater and repeat Ipsen customer Midwest Thermal-Vac (MTV) recently purchased a TITAN® vacuum furnace with 12-bar gas quenching. This furnace features a diffusion pump for high-vacuum levels and an all-metal hot zone to ensure part cleanliness – an important feature for processing parts that need to comply with Nadcap and medical industry requirements such as MedAccred. The TITAN is MTV’s second Ipsen furnace; the first is a horizontal furnace used primarily for processing tool and die work.
The TITAN furnace features an all-metal hot zone measuring 18” x 24” x 18” (455 mm x 610 mm x 455 mm), with a 1,000-pound (450 kg) load capacity. It is capable of operating at temperatures ranging from 900° F to 2,400° F (482° C to 1,316° C) with ± 10° F (±6° C) temperature uniformity. This shipment also includes PdMetrics® software platform for predictive maintenance and Ipsen’s startup service performed by local field service engineers.
Ipsen’s TITAN vacuum furnace is a platform product that sets the industry standard for quality equipment at a cost-conscious value. These heat-treating systems are available in several sizes with horizontal or vertical configurations, nitrogen or argon quench, and graphite or all-metal hot zone construction. They are easy to operate and handle a variety of common heat-treating processes, making them an ideal choice for both new and repeat customers.
