Furnaces for artificial ageing of aluminium profiles
We have supplied several bogie-hearth chamber furnaces and dryers for the artificial ageing of aluminium profiles. They have even included a bogie-hearth chamber furnace with forced air circulation.
Thanks to their design, our bogie-hearth chamber dryers enable convenient loading of bulky and heavy charges using a crane or a forklift. They are also suitable for operations where the bogie needs to be loaded gradually and then driven into the furnace.
This specific VKNC bogie-hearth chamber furnace with forced air circulation can be equipped with either a gas or an electric heating element. Multi-zone regulation can also be set up for it. This regulation, together with the air circulation, ensures even temperature distribution within the furnace’s operational space. You can govern the entire heat process using a programmable PLC automated system. The carriage can have a drive, or you can drive it manually. The door can also be opened manually or electrically.
We supplied this facility for artificial ageing of aluminium profiles, with its largest advantage being the very precise temperature distribution in the ± 3 °C range, which met even the strictest demands of the AMS 2750e standard. What’s more, this furnace also boasts low thermal losses thanks to its above-standard insulation.
