In response to increasing large furnace capacity demand, Solar Atmospheres of CA (SCA) has added additional large furnace capacity to complement their current facility equipment arrangement. Uniquely designed for SCA, Solar's new furnace offers new features and characteristics that will enhance SCA's ability to process a multitude of diverse processing parameters that currently exist in the vacuum heat treating industry. It will also allow SCA to prepare for future material advancements and specification modifications that require strict adherence to process controls to include Heating/Cooling Rates, Process Vacuum Levels, Temperature Uniformity and Mistake-Proof Processing.

Key Performance Characteristics:

• 84” diameter x 144” long hot zone

• Maximum operating temperature of 2650°F

• Hearth to support in excess of 30,000 lbs.

• Energy efficient all graphite hot zone

• Solar Manufacturing's state-of-the-art Furnace Control Package – SolarVac 5000

President Derek Dennis states, “Solar CA is very excited to add this versatile piece of equipment to our consistently growing vacuum furnace inventory. SCA has worked very closely with our sister company Solar Manufacturing to design this furnace in order to best meet the needs of our expansive customer base on the west coast. We feel that this furnace will add a competitive advantage by allowing Solar to expand our vacuum processing capabilities in the large parts market. We're excited to get the furnace online on May 1st and put her to work.”
