Abbott Furnace Company, St. Marys, Pennsylvania, USA, reports that it has designed, manufactured and installed a new 6,000 SCFH Endothermic Gas Generator at Powder Metallurgy parts maker, Sintergy, Inc., based in Reynoldsville, Pennsylvania, USA. 

The design of the Abbott SP-6000 generator is a modular concept with each module producing up to 6000 SCFH of endothermic gas. 

Abbott states that the generator offers an innovative retort design that allows a single retort to produce endo gas at this rate, without sacrificing gas quality and maintaining 6:1 turndown ratio. 

Sintergy is said to be pleased with the level of control that the new system gives, reporting only seeing a ±1°F dewpoint variation from setpoint. 

Abbott addeds that the new generator  houses a number of improvements, including state of the art controls with Allen Bradley PLC, data logging, dewpoint and methane sensors, as well asan updated gas safety system.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
