LUCIFER FURNACES: Muffle Box Furnace

Lucifer Furnaces Inc. announced it has supplied a leading analytical testing facility in the U.S. with a model 7000 AM box furnace for stress relieving. The 7 x 7 x 18-in. chamber is powered with 8 KW and heats to 2050°F. The heavy-gauge reinforced steel shell is insulated with 6½ in. of multilayered insulating firebrick and mineral wool block for energy efficiency.

Easy-to-replace radiant panels on both side walls and floor provide heat to the work load, which is insulated from the elements by a RA330 alloy muffle supporting an argon atmosphere. The muffle design can reduce scale, achieve lower dew points and reduce atmosphere consumption. A silicon carbide hearth plate supports the muffled work chamber while allowing thermal transfer from the floor heating elements. Additional built-in features include an insulated double-pivot horizontal swing door, a Honeywell digital programmable temperature controller, a flow meter and an over-temperature safety system.
