Solar Manufacturing receives vacuum furnace order from major gear manufacturer

Solar Manufacturing, Inc. recently received an order for a Model HVC-3836-2IQ horizontal, front loading type vacuum carburizing furnace from Aero Gear, Inc., a major gear manufacturer in the United States. This furnace will be used for the carburizing of a variety of gears applicable to both the commercial and military aerospace industry.

The work zone of this furnace will be 24 inches (610 mm) wide x 24 inches (610 mm) high x 36 inches (914 mm) deep with a hearth designed to accommodate up to a 1,000 pound workload. The entire hot zone utilizes a Flexshield hot face backed by four layers of ½ inch thick graphite felt insulation and supported by a heavy-duty stainless steel structure. The heating elements will consist of thin, durable, curved graphite allowing for a maximum operating temperature of 2500oF. The vacuum pumping system will be a Stokes Model 412J 300 CFM mechanical pump backed by a Stokes 615 Booster blower for vacuum operation in the low micron range.

A new Solar proprietary radial fan and gas diffuser/distributer design with internal 100 horse power drive motor is capable of providing rapid quenching of loads to their required hardness if gas quenching is specified. Solar's vacuum carburizing system is included in the furnace control system.
