Meadville, Pennsylvania – SECO/WARWICK Corp. recently delivered a vacuum furnace to a U.S.-based global industrial manufacturer that has overcome the issue of tight temperature uniformity in a vacuum at low temperatures.
The furnace will operate at 800°F and maintain a +/- 10°F temperature uniformity with 1X10-4 TORR vacuum, in a 12 inch wide by 6 inch high by 12 inch long hot zone. At low temperatures and without an atmosphere, temperature uniformity is difficult because of the lack of convection. The furnace has an operating range of up to 2400°F.
