HARPER INTERNATIONAL: Configurable Rotary Furnaces
These pre-engineered furnaces are reportedly advantageous for clients requiring more economical equipment solutions with quicker lead times.
Harper International recently announced the launch of its HC Series™ configurable rotary furnace product line. Complementing the company’s custom-designed thermal processing systems, these pre-engineered furnaces are reportedly advantageous for clients requiring more economical equipment solutions with quicker lead times.
The HC Series comprises a standard set of rotary furnaces that are configured to order and available in a number of variations, depending on the client’s specifications for temperature, tube length, heated length, diameter, and number of zones. Clients have the opportunity to use a product selector on the Harper website in which their desired specifications are selected, and the proper rotary furnace design configuration is formulated. According to Harper, the new rotary configurations deliver superior temperature uniformity for the continuous processing of advanced materials including granular, powder, or particulate aggregates operating from 600-1,100°C.
“We are excited that the HC Series allows Harper to virtually eliminate a number of up-front design engineering process steps, greatly reducing start-up lead times while offering a more standard product line to those customers looking for off-the-shelf solutions,” said Paul Elwell, vice president Sales and Marketing. “Additionally, the web-based product selector tool provides an efficient head-start to our client engagement activities.”
