Lucifer Furnaces supply high speed dual chamber furnace to Australian cutting tool manufacturer

November 10, 2010

American furnace manufacturer Lucifer Furnaces Inc, based in Warrington, PA, is supplying a new heavy duty high temperature dual chamber furnace to a leading designer and manufacturer of specialised cutting tools and tooling equipment in Victoria, Australia.

lucifer_furnaceThe company will supply model HS8-K12, which they state has a 12″ x 12″ x 12″ hardening chamber mounted above an identically sized tempering chamber. The upper chamber, which heats to 2450°F, contains long lasting silicon carbide heating elements with an SCR power supply for steady state power control. Ceramic fibre insulation combined with mineral wool fibre reduces energy costs and facilitates faster heating and cooling cycles.

The lower chamber, which heats to 1200°F, contains a stainless liner forming the work area which is uniformly heated with easy-to-replace heating elements and a recirculating rear mounted fan. Horizontal swing doors on both chambers have cam locks to insure a positive seal and safety micro switches to shut off power when doors are opened. These electrically heated space saving dual chamber units are regulated with Honeywell digital time proportioning programmable controllers with comports for computer interface.
