Solar Atmospheres of California (SCA) located in Fontana, California, USA, has added additional large furnace capacity to complement their current facility. Uniquely designed for SCA, Solar’s new furnace offers new features and characteristics that will enhance the company’s ability to process a multitude of diverse processing parameters that currently exist in the vacuum heat treating industry.

The new furnace will also allow SCA to prepare for future material advancements and specification modifications that require strict adherence to process controls to include heating/cooling rates, process vacuum levels, temperature uniformity and mistake-proof processing.

“Solar CA is very excited to add this versatile piece of equipment to our consistently growing vacuum furnace inventory. SCA has worked very closely with our sister company Solar Manufacturing to design this furnace in order to best meet the needs of our expansive customer base on the west coast,” stated Derek Dennis, President. “We feel that this furnace will add a competitive advantage by allowing Solar to expand our vacuum processing capabilities in the large parts market.”
