PWHT Furnace Upgrade!

Posted: 6/11/2013

Improvements were recently completed on our existing 20 ft. wide x 20 ft.high x 60 ft. long, car bottom, induction furnace, increasing the load capacity of an individual heat four-fold, from 100 tons to 400 tons. These improvements included both structural and drive system upgrades, as well as a new refractory lining for the car. This additional weight capacity provides our pressure vessel customers with a number of benefits, including tighter dimensional control during post-weld-heat-treatment. The additional capacity also improves our heat treating efficiency of plate and other products.
