What is a non-continuous furnace?

Many industrial processes require non-continuous heat treatment. Optimal treatment conditions are easier to recreate in closed systems such as non-continuous furnaces. Some industrial applications require inert or vacuum conditions to maintain impermeability. Non-continuous furnaces are ideal for these applications because they are closed process machines. Non-continuous furnaces are best utilized for parts that are unique […]

3 Things You Should Know about Furnace Exhaust Systems

Thermal processes generate various particulates and gases which may be harmful to technicians in the working environment. Furnace exhaust systems are used to vent these by-products from the heating chamber to the outside air. Typically, this is done continuously while the furnace is operational to maintain an optimal working atmosphere, and throughout any programmed cooling […]

What is an Oscillating Motion Furnace?

Oscillating motion furnaces allow for agitation of melts before crystal growth. The design of oscillating motion furnaces means that furnace inclination can be adjusted regularly in addition to the variation of oscillation frequency and amplitude and the rotation of the furnace to a vertical position. What are Oscillating Motion Furnaces Used For? At Deltech, we […]

When to Use a Horizontal Tube Furnace?

One of the easiest ways to categorise thermal processing equipment is by configuration. It is not uncommon to classify furnaces by application (i.e., pharmaceutical ovens), or even by specific certifications (i.e., ISO 6245-accredited), but using the general shape and orientation of the heating chamber is the preferred naming convention. This is for simplicity’s sake, as […]

Understanding the Basics of Creep Test Furnaces

Creep tests are carried out on alloy samples to ascertain their physical properties at standard operating temperatures. Simply put, a sample is heated to a stable temperature (dependent on the material) above 300°C. In order to exert a longitudinal force on the alloy’s grain structure, a stress is then applied to the sample. The sample […]
