Vacuum Furnaces

Kiran Group offers a range of equipment (vacuum furnaces) for the vacuum heat treatment of metals, alloys and other materials while vacuum brazing at the same time. The variety of processes requires the implementation of optimised technologies for each application. From 150 to 2,800°C, from several cm3 to several m3 of available volume, from atmospheric pressure to molecular vacuum, up to 20 bar cooling, ECM Technologies is ready to meet all these technological and industrial challenges. In a vacuum furnace the product in the furnace is surrounded by a vacuum. The absence of air or other gases prevents heat transfer with the product through convection and removes a source of contamination.

Some of the benefits of a vacuum furnace are::

  • Uniform temperatures in the range 1100-1500°C (2000-2800°F)
  • Temperature can be controlled within a small area.
  • Low contamination of the product by carbon, oxygen and other gases.
  • Quick cooling (quenching) of product.
  • The process can be computer controlled to ensure metallurgical repeatability.

A furnace is a device used for high-temperature heating. The name derives from Greek word fornax, which means oven. The furnaces are also considered as a direct fired heater, used in boiler applications in chemical industries or for providing heat to chemical reactions for processes like cracking, and is part of the standard English names for many metallurgical furnaces worldwide.A household furnace is a major appliance that is permanently installed to provide heat to an interior space through intermediary fluid movement, which may be air, steam, or hot water.
