Sinterite, a Gasbarre Furnace Group Company, has announced the installation of a continuous belt furnace at the Air Liquide’s Shanghai Research & Technology Centre in China. The centre, opened in 2016, houses offices, showrooms, laboratories and a pilot demonstration department.

Sinterite’s nine-zone, 305 mm wide furnace will be used in the development of Air Liquide’s sintering, brazing, annealing and heat treatment applications. The electrically-heated furnace can be used with multiple configurations of atmosphere gas set-up (H2, N2, NH3, O2 and CO2) and can be heated to 1150°C (2100°F) and rapidly cooled using the Sinterite HyperCooler.

The continuous belt furnace is reported to have advanced monitoring and recording capabilities for process development and is designed primarily for Powder Metallurgy sintering processes, with dedicated delubrication, sintering and cooling sections.

Air Liquide, headquartered in Paris, France, produces gases, technologies and services for Industry with a presence in 80 countries. The company employs approximately 67,000 staff and in 2016 reported revenue of €18.1 billion.
