Centorr Vacuum Industries Ships New Workhorse 2nd Generation Furnace Design To Setra Systems For Precision Brazing

Centorr/Vacuum Industries, Inc.
55 Northeastern Blvd.
Nashua, NH, 03062

Press release date: August 5, 2014

Nashua, NH, 5 -- Centorr Vacuum Industries announced it has shipped its first redesigned flagship Workhorse™ Vacuum furnace to Setra Systems for its US production facility.

CVI’s Workhorse furnaces were first introduced in 1967 and the original design had the staying power that few furnace designs can match. After selling over 400 Workhorse furnaces for precision brazing, heat treating, annealing, degassing, and sintering, CVI began a complete upgrade to the design of the furnace in late 2013.

Centorr engineers updated the furnace offering with a number of design improvements including: an all stainless steel chamber, upsized diffusion pumping system, updated computer control system with touchscreen monitor, streamlined design of all utility connections resulting in a sleek, more professional appearance, and several hot zone improvements for longer life in difficult process environments.

While implementing these changes, CVI’s engineers and manufacturing group were also able to reduce the price for the equipment by 25%.

Today’s 2nd generation Workhorse furnace is available in sizes from 1 cu ft to 12 cu ft, and temperatures of 1000°C, 1315°C, 1650°C, and 2200°C in either low or high vacuum configurations. Several options are also available for customizing the unit to add debinding capability, fast cooling, or operation in Hydrogen gas.
CVI’s most recent shipment of its Workhorse II GEN II design was to Setra Systems of Boxborough, MA.  Setra designs and manufactures a broad line of sensing products for the industrial market. These include humidity, current, vacuum, and pressure sensing instruments, low pressure calibrators, and weighing and counting scales for a wide variety of applications in the HVAC/R, Semiconductor, Test & Measurement, Medical, Pharmaceutical, Barometric, Vacuum, and Industrial markets.

Working closely with Setra engineers, Centorr incorporated Setra’s line of M730 vacuum pressure transducers into its design for pressure measurement as part of a customized high partial-pressure gas control option. Centorr also included Setra’s newest product offering, the Power Patrol into its design. This wi-fi enabled power sensor tracks current used by the furnace’s power supply allowing the customer to track valuable data on power usage in real time from anywhere in the world. Setra’s Power Patrol will be available to the market starting in 4th quarter 2014, and will be available as an option on all Centorr furnaces.

Centorr Vacuum Industries is a high temperature vacuum / controlled atmosphere furnace manufacturer with an installed base of over 6500 units worldwide. Their furnace offering ranges from large commercial  and production units with hot zones over 3m x 3m x 3m, to smaller Lab and Research  & Development furnaces for use at temperatures up to 3500°C.
