Nutec Bickley pusher furnaces are available for temperatures ranging between 150ºC and 1,150ºC (300ºF to 2,100ºF).

Pusher furnaces has skid rails attached to the top of the refractory hearth to support the trays or containers along the length of the furnace.

Nutec Bickley manufactures and supplies pusher furnaces for continuous production in custom designs to meet clients’ production needs and process requirements.

The indexing pusher mechanism is located outside of the furnace and pushes a whole train of trays or containers along the length of the furnace.

Industrial furnaces benefiting from the best technology


With our SCADA systems, the pusher furnaces operators are able to have complete control of their heating and thermal treating processes, enhancing efficiency and productivity. Our latest Industry 4.0 developments integrate the latest technology to not only monitor the process, but also to keep the furnace operating in its peak performance with smart maintenance technology. All the data generated during the heating and thermal treating processes is stored in our SCADA system, which then is used to generate reports, graphs and intelligence data, to help customers in their decision making process.
