A manufacturer of excavating equipment based in the southern United States will use a high temperature car-bottom furnace for stress relieving and normalizing. The furnace, which was built and commissioned by Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems, has a 16,000-pound load capacity and an operating temperature range of 1000 to 2282°F (538 to 1250°C). It gives the manufacturer improved operating efficiency and higher temperature processing capabilities.

The heating system includes low emission, gas-fired burners with a custom-designed control scheme to meet strict NOX and CO requirements. The furnace meets AMS 2750 temperature uniformity requirements across a wide temperature range and was custom-designed to fit into the existing space in the company’s facility.
