A sow and T-bar preheat furnace system will help a manufacturer of flat-rolled aluminum sheet in the United States achieve maximum product quality, energy savings and melt safety. The furnace, manufactured and supplied by Seco/Warwick, offers airflow management and a heating system that promotes efficient heat transfer throughout the work, says the company.

The supplied system includes a patented movable baffle system and fixed base airflow spacers to maximize heat transfer to varying height loads. The system is PLC-controlled with remote I/O and dual operator-interface control stations.
