Heaters are properly sized so they have a very long lifetime. Furnace floor is plated with cast elements (High temperature steel) which protect furnace from mechanical damage. Due to requirement for often opening of furnace, furnace is equipped with pneumatically powered doors which open upwards (our standard system). Temperature regulation is in multiple zones, and can realized within PLC or common temperature regulators.
Furnace is built in system for temperatures up to 1200°C. Robust chassis supports insulation and doors. Furnace is built in dry building system which enables transport of finished furnaces to customer, additionally it enables easy service and access to single insulation blocks for service purposes. Heaters are installed on a such way to enable easy serviceability and easy change of single heating element.
