Clam Shell Furnaces are an excellent choice for an extremely heavy load.
A Clam Shell Furnace, also known as a Tip Up Furnace, features a pivoting furnace body to allow overhead crane loading and unloading of the parts. Clam Shell Furnaces are utilized for heat-treating, calcining, curing, annealing, stress relieving, preheating, tempering, and other high temperature thermal processes. Multiple zone heating technology can be integrated to maintain exceptional part temperature uniformity, and achieve ramp/soak heating and cooling profiles.
Materials processed include aluminum, steel, cast iron, high nickel alloys, titanium and others.
The ITS Clam Shell Tip-Up Furnace has many established design features such as heavy duty hydraulic lift systems, energy efficient insulation, fully proportional gas and electric heat, lightweight heavy duty piers and state-of-the art control packages.
Optional inert gas and high volume recirculation systems makes these versatile furnaces a great option.
