Centorr Vacuum Industries: Precision Brazing Furnaces

August 2, 2006
Centorr Vacuum Industries has shipped three state-of-the-art precision Workhorse® vacuum brazing furnaces to CeramTec North America, Laurens, S.C. The standard Workhorse furnace design was upgraded for CeramTec NA to achieve precision brazing and heat treating. The improved components include thermocouple survey ports, a dedicated load thermocouple, a cooling fan and a special partial pressure control system. The control system reduces the chance of damage to the hot zone due to vaporization of lower-melting-temperature constituents in braze filler metals.
