Abbott Furnace Company, an industrial furnace manufacturer located in St. Mary’s, Pennsylvania, USA, has received an order for a steam treat furnace from a leading metal powder company, to be installed in Mexico.

Abbott Furnace explains that this order is the latest in a long line of orders from the metal powder company, which has received more than 100 furnaces providing a variety of heat treat solutions. This latest steam treat furnace was selected due to its process flexibility, ease of installation, and the local regional support provided by the Abbott Mexico sales and service team.

The steam treatment furnace includes the following features:

  • Humpback design
    Steam treaters isolate the steam chamber, allowing greater throughput and improved efficiency.
  • Electric or gas-fired boiler
    The company offers both types of boiler heating, depending on the customer’s needs.
  • Continuous steam treating
    Enables sealing of the porosity, corrosion resistance and improved overall appearance of the parts
  • Monitoring & control
    The company offers computerised monitoring and control systems that may supervise several different functions including: furnace temperature, atmosphere flow, dew point, oxygen content, carbon control, belt speed, etc.
