Integral-Quench Furnace Shipped to Die Forging Company
Lindberg/MPH shipped an integral-quench furnace with an endothermic gas generator to a company in the die forging industry. The furnace has a maximum temperature rating of 1850°F and work-chamber dimensions measuring 30 inches wide x 48 inches long x 30 inches high. The furnace utilizes a drive mechanism to push the workload into the furnace, where it undergoes a hardening process under an endothermic gas atmosphere. A discharge drive system pushes the workload out of the furnace and onto a quench elevator. The load is then either lowered into an oil-quench tank for fast, circulated cooling or elevated for a slower atmosphere cool. The endothermic gas generator system supplies the furnace atmosphere. The integral-quench furnace system provides a total solution for the die forger’s heat-treating process.
