Gasbarre vacuum furnace systems can range from modular to single and dual chamber to continuous and multizone and so much more. With a focus on reliability, expertise, service and selection, Gasbarre can solve any application.
The continuous vacuum furnace essentially transforms the batch vacuum furnace into a straight through furnace. Work is no longer processed into and out from the same side – rather work is loaded into the entry side and unloaded from the exit side of the furnace. Modules consist of load/evacuation chambers, preheat and high heat chambers, multiple heat position chambers, and oil or pressurized gas quench chambers. Small batches are therefore indexed in a continuous fashion making this style furnace highly productive. With the continuous vacuum furnace, the heat chamber typically remains hot and under vacuum making for a highly efficient and pure system.
Designed for many thermal processes, the electrically heated batch vacuum furnace is available in a multitude of configurations. The most basic configurations are the front and top loading single chamber styles where work is loaded into and out from the same door. These are designed for high temperature applications such as brazing, annealing, carburizing, hardening, tempering and are supplied with graphite or ceramic insulation packages. Evacuation systems include rough pumps, boosters, and diffusion pumps when required. Being modular in design, independent quench chambers may be added to the basic heating chamber. The quenching mediums may be gas, pressurized gas, and/or oil. Isolation of the modules (temperature and vacuum level) may be accomplished with an internal vacuum door.
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.
