Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of two Electrically Heated Atmosphere Pit Furnaces the automotive industry. The nitrogen atmosphere pit furnaces will be used for heat treating automotive parts.

The two pit furnaces utilize high velocity forced convection heating systems inside an atmosphere tight retort chamber and have a maximum operating temperature of 1250°F. The work chamber is approximately 50” in diameter and 60” deep. The overall dimensions are 101” wide by 90” long by 148” high with a working height of 110”. The maximum load gross weight is 10,000 lbs.

The atmosphere tight furnace retorts are interior chambers that contain the nitrogen atmosphere and workload within a cylindrical shell that has a solid bottom and sealing trough at the top. The systems also feature forced cooling systems to accelerate the furnace cooling cycle while the load is under nitrogen atmosphere.
