The main furnace types are fixed, moveable and temporary modular furnaces. Heating method is either electric or gas.
Furnaces are tailor-made to meet customers’ needs; Top-hat furnaces, Furnaces with pivot door, Chamber furnaces, Convection furnaces, Car bottom furnaces. Location, environmental conditions, heat treatment method and loading all affect the choice of furnace
The heat treatment of large workpieces often has to be carried out on site. The transportation of large workpieces in stationary furnaces is a costly, time-absorbing and sometimes impossible operation. In such cases, a temporary furnace can be built from modular furnace elements - on the site or in a production bay. Rapid Heat Systems’ modular furnace system makes it possible to carry out on site heat treatment of large components, such as spherical tanks, gas tanks or columns. The size of the furnace can be specified in 1000 mm modules
Factors of selecting type of the furnace include: location, environmental conditions, heat treatment method and loading. After giving description of demands for the heat treatment we can help to select right type of the furnace.
