Lift-Off Cover Furnaces

Lift Off Cover Furnace

These furnaces are becoming ever more popular with our heat-treatment customers who have overhead cranes, as it obviates the need for expensive car bottom (bogie hearths) and attendant drive units.

The combustion fired hoods can serve one or more bases, and can work at temperatures in excess of 1250șC.

Northern Combustion Systems' innovative hearth flueing arrangement allows temperature uniformity to meet with Rolls Royce, aerospace, and petroleum industries tight specifications of ± 5șC.

Control varies from simple high/low to the most sophisticated P.L.C and computer linked systems.

The photograph shows a large 7 metres square x 4 metres high unit, serving two bases.  It is for the heat treatment of steel rolls and satisfies a total charge weight of 150 tons.
