Solar Atmospheres recently installed another unique, all-metal hot zone vacuum furnace at its 1969 Clearview Road facility in Souderton, Pennsylvania.
This is Solar’s third all-metal hot zone furnace installation for their climate-controlled room. The additional furnace increases Solar’s capacity for processing sensitive materials such as PH stainless, nickel-chrome based superalloys, titanium, and ferritic and austenitic stainless steels.
The unique placement of isolation valves, an all-metal moly/stainless steel hot zone, and a stainless-steel chamber allows this furnace to attain the level of cleanliness mandated by the demanding aerospace and medical markets. The ability to achieve vacuum levels lower than 5 x 10-6 Torr produces clean, bright results without contamination. Additionally, this furnace incorporates Solar Manufacturing’s latest SolarVac Polaris HMI control system for complete process automation.
