Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems is pleased to announce the commissioning of a 24” wide, 3 zone mesh belt annealing furnace to a Midwest manufacturer of brass components. The brass annealing furnace is designed with a maximum operating temperature of 1650℉ with a capacity of 800 lbs/hr, and utilizes a blend of nitrogen and hydrogen atmospheres.  The system incorporates an Allen-Bradley PLC and HMI with automated atmosphere and water temperature control and datalogging.  The integrated dewpoint meter ensures precise process control for consistent and reliable part quality.  Gasbarre was selected as the equipment manufacturer based on their expertise in material processing and responsiveness to service the end user.  The new furnace purchase was justified based on improved energy efficiency, reduced atmosphere consumption, and superior part quality against an older, existing furnace. 

With products that range from batch furnaces to continuous belt furnaces, pusher furnaces, vacuum furnaces, humpback furnaces, and much more, Gasbarre can solve any application challenge with the expertise and passion needed to drive your success.
