The combination of important features makes this furnace the ideal equipment for batch solution heat treating of castings, forging and other aluminum parts.

We provide customized air distribution system, quick door opening, heavy duty lifting mechanism and quench tank with required agitation and sized for proper temperature rise when quenching.

Our units can be heated with direct gas fired combustion system, indirect gas fired combustion system, or electrically with low density heating elements.

We meet requirements for AMS standards (2750, 2770, 2771, 2772); ASTM B917 and 918; CQI-9 or any others you may have. We include state-of-the-art instrumentation and offer customized SCADA system.
