CHERRY VALLEY, IL – PMF Industries in Pennsylvania selected Ipsen to manufacture a vertical MetalMaster® vacuum heat treatment system. PMF will use this furnace to manufacture stainless steel, flowformed products for the Aerospace industry. This particular MetalMaster vacuum furnace has a 48" x 84" (1,219 mm x 2,134 mm) all-graphite hot zone with a 6,000-pound (2,722 kg) load capacity. It utilizes gas cooling to 2-bar, absolute pressure and operates at temperatures of 1,000 °F to 2,400 °F (538 °C to 1,316 °C). The furnace also features a 35-inch (889 mm) Varian diffusion pump and Ipsen's CompuVac® control system.

The need for a clean manufacturing environment and overall uniform cooling drove PMF to select Ipsen's MetalMaster. Respected as a workhorse in the Aerospace industry, the MetalMaster's design has maintained ultimate performance and reliability for more than 45 years, with 500+ installations worldwide. It delivers the cleanliness and uniform cooling that customers request, while also providing a cost-effective, versatile and adaptable vacuum furnace system. Ipsen equipment is also capable of meeting Nadcap and AMS 2750E applicable requirements.

MetalMaster heat treatment furnaces are available in a wide variety of sizes and configurations, including horizontal or vertical designs and all-metal or graphite insulated hot zone packages. This multi-purpose vacuum furnace series features a specially engineered heat exchanger and turbine blower designed to optimize gas flow for more efficient cooling and excellent temperature uniformity of ±10 °F (±5 °C) or better. In addition to Ipsen's CompuVac control system, MetalMaster offers other high-productivity options, including specialized instrumentation, increased pumping capability and material handling systems.
