Custom Manufactured Roller Hearth Furnace for the Pressurized Cylinder Industry

Roller Hearth Furnace
Roller Hearth Furnace

A local company in the cylinder industry was seeking a custom furnace designed for the quenching of their parts in a semi-automated process. As leaders in the furnace manufacturing industry, CHE International was commissioned to design and manufacture a solution, creating an innovative roller hearth furnace with integrated components including a Spyro-Cor system installed in the exhaust leg of the furnace for temperature uniformity, and an efficient SCADA industrial control system. Design challenges to overcome included a small rigging space, and limited available height. This unit featured a vertical hydraulic quench capability, carrying out the required quenching operation within the specified quench speed with distortion minimized by a Tenaxol UCON A polymer quenching process.

The completed unit was an in-direct gas fired system, with overall dimensions of 7' x 8' x 14' and a temperature range of 600 to 1000 °F. Fabrication met AMS 2750 E, AMS 2770 J industry standards outlining industrial heat treatment requirements. Turnaround time for this project was 24 weeks, delivered to the customer in California, USA. The customer provided positive feedback, reporting a reliable quench and good temperature uniformity survey.
