Abbott Furnace installs endothermic gas generator at Powder Metallurgy parts maker Sintergy
September 17, 2020
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.
