Seco/Warwick updated and extended a box furnace’s productive longevity for a leading international participant in the field of precious metals and advanced materials.

The furnace, a pivotal piece of manufacturing equipment for the customer, was updated and production simultaneously extended. The unit was originally manufactured and delivered by Seco/Warwick in 1989 and thanks to routine maintenance specified by Seco/Warwick, the furnace has operated reliably and productively for three decades. It was used primarily for annealing in the manufacturing of precious metals and advanced materials.

The furnace is a key piece of equipment in their production process and they’ve been extremely happy with the reliability of this equipment. To keep quality standards high, the customer scheduled the furnace to be rebuilt. Seco/Warwick was the first company asked and was also the company selected to do the actual rebuild. The customer is hopeful the furnace will last another three decades with only minor maintenance after the current rebuild.

“Rebuilds of this type are high on our priority list. Because of our team’s broad professional services capabilities, we’re able to provide good customers with prompt, professional, and timely rebuild and upgrade services that meet their demanding schedule,” said Keith Boeckenhauer, managing director at Seco/Warwick USA.

The unit was gutted. New insulation, baffles, and door seals were installed as well as a significant upgrade to the control system including an ultra-modern HMI.
