Producing a custom furnace to meet exact specifications and requirements can be extremely beneficial for a range of applications. Many industries have exacting needs for their furnaces due to the processes they carry out or the materials that they use. This article will outline the benefits and considerations of creating a custom furnace.
Why Use a Custom Furnace?
The specific requirements of industries can be problematic when using an off-the-shelf furnace solution. These furnaces can limit production as no furnaces exactly meet requirements and a model must be selected that is as close as possible. This often means that the capability of optimizing processes is missed out on.
Custom furnaces are extremely useful in applications that require heavy loads as off-the-shelf furnaces are typically suited to standard load weights. They are also beneficial when part of the application needs tight temperature uniformity or extremely high temperatures.
Custom furnaces would also be beneficial to use in explosive environments or environments where there are tight fuel/energy consumption parameters to meet. They are also helpful in environments where it is important to minimize the pollution emitted into the atmosphere.
Custom furnaces can be used in areas that have small floor space, requiring a small footprint furnace. they can be specially designed to optimize the floor space.
When Custom Furnaces May Not be Necessary
When a small furnace that does not require any special engineering is required, an off-the-shelf version may be suitable. They may also be suitable for batch processes that have a low level of complexity and for applications that use high-temperature equipment.
Advantages of Custom Furnaces
Some of the key benefits of custom furnaces will be outlined below:
- Optimized use of factory space
- Meet exacting requirements for operational efficiency
- Optimized production cycles
- Improved flexibility when selecting specific components
- Complete compliance with design requirements and standards
- Enhanced energy efficiency
