Heatmasters completed the design and engineering work for this furnace and provided heating technology, as well as installation and commissioning services. As a cost-effective solution, the steel works for the furnace were completed locally by RAFAKO, under the supervision of Heatmasters.
The dimensions of this new furnace are 6 x 6 x 2 meters. The furnace has a maximum operating temperature of 800 °C and a heating power output of 216 kW.
The furnace of course includes Heatmasters’ digital temperature control system with a Rigel26 controller. This provides RAFAKO with accurate, repeatable heat treatment processes, digital process control, and documentation of each heat treatment.
Heatmasters is happy to have another end-user utilizing a modern and efficient Heatmasters furnace. We look forward to future cooperation with Rafako, as it was also a pleasure to work with their professional team during this project.
