HKFurnace has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing industrial furnaces and other heating equipment for 50 years.
In the aerospace industry and automotive industry, drop-bottom furnaces are typically utilized because of the need for very tight temperature control, fast quench times and rapid heat-up.
Quick quench drop bottom furnace is electrically heated and designed for installation above the floor level.
Drop Bottom Furnaces are used where transit time to the quench is very short.
These furnaces meet stringent MIL specs and aerospace requirements.
HKFurnace designs and builds standard designs Drop Bottom Furnace and have the capability to engineer custom systems to suit specific customer's requirements.
Quick quenching drop bottom furnace stands on a base so that a quench tank can be positioned directly below the furnace.
This system was designed to provide a heat treatment solution for aluminum with a seven second quench.
For the quenching process, the furnace bottom moves horizontally to the side.
The loaded basket drops out of the furnace into the quench tank guided by wire cables.
The lifting system can be controlled automatically or semi-automatically.
Drop-bottom furnace plants allow complete T6 heat treatments, consisting of solution annealing, quenching, and artificial aging in just one furnace.
