BeaverMatic® Supplies a New Carbottom Furnace to an International Power Generation Company
February 16, 2015…An existing customer purchased its second BeaverMatic carbottom furnace. The furnace is an essential duplicate of a furnace manufactured several years ago but was redesigned to operate in Asia. It will be used for stress relieving components ultimately used in the power generation industry. The BeaverMatic furnace is capable of processing 5 foot (1.5 meter) wide by 5 foot (1.5 meter) high by 8 foot (2.4 meter) long workloads that weigh up to 10,000 pounds (4.5 tons). It is electrically heated by rod overbend heating elements and features a car driven by a motor a gearbox. Pneumatic cylinders seal the car mounted door to the insulated frame. A forced convection system results in ±25°F (±6°C) temperature uniformity from 1200°F to 1550°F (649°C to 843°C). A Eurotherm nanodac instrument enables recipe management, guaranteed soak functionality, and temperature control and recording. The furnace is lined with energy efficient ceramic fiber insulation. Parts are supported by grids on pre-cast workload supports. A CE Marking was affixed to the furnace to indicate that it complies with the applicable international requirements. BeaverMatic personnel recently supervised the installation of the furnace, checked out its performance and operation during start-up and received final signoff.
BeaverMatic manufactures standard and custom, batch and continuous equipment used world-wide in the commercial heat treating, aerospace, automotive, fastener, gear, tool, mining, military, and power generation industries.

BeaverMatic's Tip-up furnaces are precision- engineered powerhouses that can heat treat 40'-W x 10'-H x 10'L loads weighing up to 100,000lbs. They are ideal for carburizing, annealing, stress relieving, nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing. When installed in a system with a quench tank and manipulator, tip-up furnaces can be used for hardening. They utilize energy-efficient ceramic-fiber insulation modules, and circulating fans help maintain excellent temperature uniformity at up to 1750°F. BeaverMatic's Tip-up furnace is highly reliable and efficient for heavy loads and high-volume processing requirements. One customer said that they "annealed more than 7 million pounds of product in just 3 1/2 months while experiencing a substantial improvement in work flow and throughout by stacking and configuring baskets and trays to process daily loads weighing 70,000-90,000 pounds."
BeaverMatic Tip-up furnaces can be custom configured to meet individual company needs.
