Static or Bogie Chamber Furnace - SBCF

The robust construction of the SBCF large chamber furnace makes it ideal for applications such as the heat treatment of steels and alloy, ceramics sintering and aerospace heat treatment.

The SBCF chamber furnace is an industrial scale furnace based on a modular design principle which can be adapted to various applications. The furnace chamber is cubic in shape and is available in three sizes.

In its standard configuration the furnace has a side hinged opening door, which can be specified to open on the left or the right, and a fixed hearth. As an option the hearth can fitted to a bogie so it can be pulled out of the furnace on a track system. This hearth design technique also allows the furnace to be easily adapted to a vertical lift arrangement to provide an elevator hearth, in which case the door would become a fixed side of the chamber.

The heating elements are designed to allow up to 3-zones of temperature control and for applications that demand the best uniformity possible, such as AMS2750E, this can be combined with an optional air circulation fan.

The construction uses low thermal mass insulation materials to maximise running efficiency whilst using robust refractory materials where physical strength is required such as the loading area of the hearth. The top of the hearth is fitted with SiC tiles to provide a hard wearing surface.
