Custom Manufactured Drop Bottom Furnace for the Military Industry
CHE International was commissioned to design and manufacture a drop bottom furnace for the military, to be used in specialized repair work with aluminum. This system was designed to provide a heat treatment solution for aluminum with a seven second quench. The furnace featured electric coiled elements, an electric hoist, and double tank system components with an operating temperature range of 600 to 1100 °F. The entire system was designed, fabricated, and assembled on site at our state of the art facility, by AWS certified welders, meeting AMS 2750 D, AMS 2770 H standards for industrial heat treating equipment. Comprehensive in process temperature uniformity survey was conducted to ensure quality and integrity.
The location space constraints were overcome with our design, with finished dimensions at 3' x 12' x 7 ½'. The customer reported a greater satisfaction with the reliability and temperature uniformity of this furnace than with other units. Turnaround time for this project was 14 weeks, installed on location in Georgia, USA.
