Harper International, in collaboration with Sandvik Process Systems,
has developed a steel belt furnace designed for high efficiency, high
temperature continuous processing of powder, granular or particle
aggregates in air or controlled atmospheres. Typical materials
include cobalt, copper, molybdenum, tungsten and others. These
systems are constructed for processing of materials that agglomerate
or may suffer degradation due to mechanical working at high
temperatures. Placement of the material directly on the belt
eliminates the need for trays or other carrier media, enhancing gas-
solid contact and minimizing material handling. The Harper-Sandvik
systems incorporate Harper's advanced furnace designs and process
engineering expertise along with Sandvik's steel belt technology and
belt transition hardware to deliver optimal belt life under superior
material processing conditions.
