Hauck Manufacturing Co. has completed a new product development test
furnace. The furnace has load simulation; automatic pressure
controlled capability; and can be fired using natural gas, light or
heavy fuel oil, and liquid propane. The maximum operating temperature
is 2400°F. The inside chamber is 9 x 17 x 6 ft, and the side walls and
roof are composed of 12-in. thick ceramic fiber modules. There are 34
silicon carbide air tubes at the furnace walls for load simulation.
Exhaust gas testing capability exists for NOx (ppm), CO (ppm), H2C2
(ppm), and percent O2. According to the company, the load simulation
capability in the new furnace will facilitate the development of new
low emission burner technologies.
