An augmented reality platform from Baker Furnace allows operators, maintenance personnel and engineers to interact with an industrial furnace through a tablet. Three levels of access via a PLC — augmented operator, augmented maintenance and augmented engineering — provide step-by-step procedures, component manuals, mechanical drawings, electrical drawings and live data at the component level.
A vacuum-purging, semi-continuous controlled-atmosphere brazing (CAB) furnace was delivered to a North American automotive aftermarket manufacturer. Seco/Warwick, which supplied the unit, says it is the first of its kind.
Two Class A cabinet ovens with a maximum temperature rating of 180°F (82°C) have been shipped to the specialty filter industry. The Gruenberg industrial ovens are constructed from a structural-steel frame that supports the stainless-steel interior chamber lining and the exterior sheet metal. All interconnecting struts are non-continuous, which helps keep the exterior cool.
A custom 200°F (93°C) steam-heated cabinet oven designed and built by Lewco Inc. is being used to melt residuals out of special containers. A stainless steel collection pan is included in the base of the oven. The pan collects the contents melted from the containers and compiles them in a drain pipe that extends out from the bottom of the oven. The contents are then emptied into another container.
A medical device manufacturer required an oven to preheat an aluminum mold for a silicone part that was to be filled and cured in the next manufacturing step. Despatch supplied a conveyor oven that met the company’s requirements.
A heavy-duty walk-in oven passed the temperature uniformity requirements to meet BAC 5621 Class 1 Furnaces and Instrumentation Type D specifications. Wisconsin Oven Corp. shipped the curing oven to a composite manufacturer.
No. 1024, a 350°F (177°C) bench oven, is used for curing the plug-on end of long cables. Workspace dimensions of measure 28 x 24 x 18”, and 2 KW are installed in Incoloy-sheathed tubular heating elements.
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.
A provider of stamping oil cleaning services utilized a thermal deoiler to eliminate toxic wastewater and reduce water consumption. The unit has a built-in secondary heat recovery system that uses a shell and tube heat exchanger design to recycle the heat from the oxidizer back into the burner-less oven.
