During the last academic year Carbolite Gero has been pleased to have supported an enthusiastic group of students to develop their engineering skills. The Sheffield Hallam University Racing team designed and built an open wheel formula race car for the IMechE’s student race event recently held at Silverstone race circuit.
Carbolite Gero offers a range of coal and coke testing furnaces and ovens for proximate analysis to qualitatively assess or quantitatively measure the amount of moisture, ash, volatile matter and fixed carbon in coal samples.
The new space saving annealing furnaces VGLO-Toploader 10/11-1G and the front loading mobile GLO 10/11-1G enable heat treatment with minimum usage of resources up to 1100°C under air or inert gases and up to 750°C under vacuum.
Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) Racing is an organisation founded and run by SHU students. Each year SHU Racing designs and builds an open wheel formula race car for the IMechE’s formula student event at the Silverstone race circuit. Carbolite Gero have joined SHU Racing as a gold tier sponsor for the 2015/16 season.
Two Carbolite Gero MTT furnaces specially designed for extracting carbon-14 and fixed tritium are being used by the Nuclear Graphite Research Group (NGRG) at the University of Manchester in a project to develop new nuclear waste disposal procedures.
Rotary Tube Furnaces are used for the quick and easy production of laboratory-scale samples with excellent homogeneity for R&D and quality control.
With the acquisition of ATM the VERDER group extends the portfolio of its Scientific Division in the business segment of sample preparation of solids. The company is a leading manufacturer of machines for metallographic applications.
Naim Audio Ltd, one of the world’s leading specialists in high-end hi-fi equipment with a portfolio of award-winning products, has installed a Carbolite GP oven to provide precisely controlled heat-treatment procedures on the cables used in its systems.
The Department of Physics at the University of Warwick, which is at the forefront of research into the properties of new and exotic materials, has increased its crystal growth capabilities with the installation of a multi-zone Bridgman furnace from Carbolite Gero.
CARBOLITE GERO has developed a new oven suitable for corrosion tests with viscous liquids, typically carried out in the petroleum and petrochemical industry to prepare the petrol for pipeline transportation.
When coal is combusted in the furnace of a power plant a powder-shaped residue or a glassy slag (clinker) forms and must be removed. Large coal furnaces suffer from clinker build-up and therefore expensive maintenance due to closure for removal of clinker. If the fusibility characteristics are known, control of temperature can avoid clinker formation.
Because Carbolite has full control of manufacturing from design to construction and market leading expertise in heating technology, adding customised modifications or producing fully bespoke products is a regular part of the service which Carbolite offers.
The low weight of aluminium is often used to reduce the energy costs of manufactured products over their lifetime. This makes the production of aluminium increasingly important for the future.
GERO is a leading manufacturer of vacuum furnaces up to 3,000 °C Founder and Managing Director Roland Geiger stays in the management
