WE SPECIALIZE IN CUSTOM EQUIPMENT. ANY SIZE, ANY TYPE, FOR ANY BUDGET.
NEW EQUIPMENT | ATMOSPHERE DRAW/TEMPERING FURNACES
Park's Gas Fired or Electrically Heated Re-Circulating Air Tempering Furnaces are engineered and constructed for drawing/tempering operations to 1250°F or 1400°F max.
Uniform temperature throughout the furnace is achieved by utilizing an alloy fan and baffle arrangement, which directs airflow from the heating chamber, through the load and back to the heating area.
Gas fired units are designed to meet or exceed Technical Safety Standard Authority's (TSSA) specifications. Electric units incorporate coiled heating elements mounted on a removable plug.
A solid state indicating temperature controller is standard equipment, however cam or electronic programmer, recorder/controller, etc. can be incorporated in the temperature control package.
Whenever possible, ceramic fibre insulation is used which assures rapid heat up and cool down, keeping operation costs to a minimum. A furnace with this type of insulation is lightweight and repairs are easily performed when necessary.
FURNACE OUTER SHELL
The furnace shell is fabricated from heavy mild steel plate fully welded gas tight and suitable reinforced with structural steel and a robust channel base. The furnace exterior is finished with a heat resistance industrial enamel paint.
The furnace insulation is a combination of ceramic fibre layers engineered to ensure excellent insulating properties to provide a safe outer shell cold face temperature and also allows for fast heat-up and cool down of the furnace.
The furnaces can be supplied with either an electric heating element package or a gas fired package.
Electric heating packages consist of coiled 80/20 Nickel/Chrome elements, custom manufactured in house and mounted on an alloy frame and the plug assembly is designed to be easily removed for maintenance.
Indirect gas fired package consists of a complete gas valve train, complete with burner and a serpintine alloy radiant tube assembly which can be accessed for maintenance by removing the back plate of the furnace. Gas furnaces meet all gas safety standards. An additional feature is the supply of a flow meter on gas fired furnaces, to ensure a full 'stoichiometric' condition is recognized.
Air re-circulation is achieved by the use of a roof mounted high temperature plug fan discharging across the ceiling through a louver plenium down into the work chamber and returning into the heating chamber located at the back of the furnace.
The furnace is supplied with two or three alloy roller rails supported by alloy piers or flat rails for loading by a forklift truck. The charge support is designed to meet the customers weight requirements.
The furnace door is robust and constructed with the same materials as the furnace shell and is a vertical rising door operated by a helical worm gear drive system which ensures a very positive seal when in the closed position.
The furnace is complete with a NEMA 12 control panel completely pre-wired and user friendly. Park Thermal engineers the control panels with 'state of the art' controls including temperature and over-temperature controllers, temperature recorder, SCR power controller, (optional PLC) and all necessary switches, push buttons, relays, fuses, alarms, etc. The control panel is completely Hydro approved.
The furnace is equipped with a nitrogen flow meter to control the flow of nitrogen atmosphere entering the work chamber.
FACTORY TESTING & OPERATIONAL INSTRUCTIONS
Prior to delivery, Park Thermal factory tests each furnace to ensure the equipment is properly set up to meet our customer's requirements.
The furnace is complete with a maintenance and operational manual, which includes start up instructions and dry-out procedures. Park Thermal also offers on site training and technical support.
