L&L Special Furnace Co., Inc. recently announced that it has received an order for a large retort box furnace used for de-bindering ceramic composite pre-peg materials, along with powder metals processing and hot isostatic processing.
Specialized ceramic coatings can provide energy savings, shorter heat-up times, and extended service life for refractories in kilns and furnaces.
October 31, 2018
High-temperature, energy-efficient ceramic coatings for refractories—no longer “theoretical” technology—are being used successfully in kiln and furnace applications to reduce energy consumption, improve temperature uniformity, reduce maintenance, and increase production while improving product quality.
According to the company, NIR-B Glass provides accurate profiling of glass furnaces and increases capacity by optimizing temperatures in glass melt tanks.

AMETEK Land will showcase its real-time, in-furnace thermal imaging near-infrared borescope (NIR-B) Glass with pneumatic auto-retract (PAR) system at glasstec 2018, which will be held October 23-26 at Düsseldorf Messe, Germany.
The proper installation of refractory castables includes mixing, placing, curing and drying. Improper amounts of water used when mixing or poor densification during placement can lead to higher porosity, lower density, and reduced strengths. Improper curing can result in the formation of undesirable hydrate phases of the cement.
Deltech Furnaces, Inc. traces its history back to 1968, when it was founded by Cal Stevenson and Don Drinkwater as a mining consulting company. When the mining industry began to decline, Stevenson’s previous contacts and experience led to an opportunity to build a furnace for Coors Porcelain (now CoorsTek, Inc.).
The presentation reports on the findings of AMETEK Land and Simpson Combustion and Energy research that was carried out into apparent flame temperatures and corresponding NOx levels within the glass melt process.
