Indirect gas firing with radiation tubes

Compact burners for standard models up to NB 600

Certain heat treatment processes require a gas-fired chamber furnace. Short heating times due to the high power are a convincing argument. The chamber furnaces with powerful atmospheric gas burners cover a wide variety of these processes. In the basic version the burners are manually ignited once at the start of the process. The automatic control system then takes over control of the temperature curve. At program end, the burners are automatically switched off. Depending on the process, the furnaces can be equipped with automatically controlled fan burners and safety technology for debinding. Depending on the model, these furnaces can be upgraded with fully automatic fan burners and additional accessories.

Before

After

Gas burners for furnace heating and thermal afterburner

The chamber furnaces in the model series NB .. CL are used for heat cleaning of components. An optimum temperature uniformity is not a priority for these processes. Examples are heat cleaning of electric motors, coated surfaces of steel components or the nozzles of plastic injection molding machines. The furnaces are gas-fired and have an integrated thermal afterburner system which is also gas-fired. The pre-set, low-oxygen respectively reducing atmosphere in the chamber furnace effectively prevents spontaneous combustion at the workpiece and subsequent damage as a result of over-temperature. For safe operation, the furnace door locks after program start and cannot be opened again until the temperature has dropped below 180 °C at the process end. In case of a burner flame malfunction or gas shortage the process is aborted. In addition, the control system is equipped with an over-temperature limiter with manual reset that is set by the customer at a safe cut-off temperature to switch off the chamber furnace if the limit is exceeded. The chamber furnaces are not suitable for components and coatings that contain solvents or a high concentration of water. These models must also not be used for charges with low flash points such as wood, paper or wax.

  • Tmax 500 °C
  • Furnace housing with equipped for safe transport with forklift
  • Furnace chamber size dimensioned to hold standard lattice boxes
  • Furnace chamber insulation made of non-classified fiber material, bottom and rear wall insulated with lightweight refractory bricks
  • High performance, atmospheric burner fueled by liquified gas or natural gas
  • Completely automated temperature controls
  • Integrated thermal afterburner for exhaust gas cleaning
  • Defined application within the constraints of the operating instructions

Chamber Furnaces for Processes with High Vaporization Rates of Organic Matter or for Thermal Cleaning by Ashing Electrically Heated or Gas-Fired

Chamber furnace N 650/14 BO with ignition burner

The chamber furnaces of the model series N .. BO are used for processes with large amounts of organic matters or high vaporization rates. Processes in which the product or contaminations on the product are ashed by ignition can be also carried out safely in this type of chamber furnace. Examples include residual wax removal of pouring clustersfollowed by sintering, or thermal cleaning of oxide catalytic honey combs from soot or fuel residues. The chamber furnaces are electrically heated or gas-fired. The electrically heated furnaces, for safety reasons, are equipped with an integrated gas torch for igniting the flammable components in the gas mixture. The accumulation of flammable components is avoided and their safe combustion is ensured.

The furnace series is suitable for products that will not be damaged by a temporary, uncontrolled temperature rise.

The burning of unwanted organic ingrediants can take place at temperatures > 500 °C. Following this, a subsequent process can take place up to max. 1000 °C or 1400 °C (electrically) or 1000 °C (gas-fired).

For safety, the furnace door locks after the program was started and cannot be opened again until the temperature has dropped below a defined value. In case of burner malfunction or gas shortage the process is aborted.
