SECO/WARWICK S.A. has supplied a vacuum furnace model 6.0VPT-4050/60IQHV to Wallwork, one of the largest heat treatment centres in UK. The furnace will be used primarily for the heat treatment of aerospace components. The furnace’s pumping system is equipped with a diffusion pump allowing it to obtain a maximum vacuum range 10-5 mbar.
The furnace has a working zone of 900 x 800 x 1500 mm, a maximum load weight of 1500 kg, a maximum working temperature of 1250°C and a maximum pressure of 6.0 bar abs. Nitrogen is used as the quenching gas.
The SECO/WARWICK Vacuum Team offers vacuum heat treating furnaces for hardening, tempering, annealing, solution heat treating, brazing, sintering, carburizing, carbonitriding, high vacuum, CVD–graphitizing and degassing. The company has built some of the largest and technically advanced vacuum furnaces in operation today, developing advanced technologies such as Universal HPQ™ (High Pressure Quench), PreNit® & FineCarb® LPC vacuum carburizing, fully automated control systems and modelling software.
Vacuum furnace configurations are available for vertical, horizontal and elevator style furnaces. Both cylindrical and rectangular hot zones with metallic or graphite heating elements are available for both new and used equipment.
