ROTARY HEARTH FURNACES

INTRODUCTION

LOI-WESMAN Rotary Hearth Furnaces type DR are manufactured on the basis of designs and drawings of our principals LOI THERMRPROCESS and IVA Industrieofen GmbH , Germany and are used for small batches or individual parts. Our furnaces are designed for greater uptime, ease of maintenance, trouble free operation and can also be customized to meet your exact heat treatment and processing requirements. These furnaces which operate under atmosphere are mostly used in India for reheating or reaustenizing of the carburized components to hardening temperature before press quenching but can also be used for other applications as well. * See under Application Heading.

LOI is also the pioneer in introduction and development of ROTARY HEARTH FURNACES WITH ZONE SEPARATION or RING HEARTH FURNACE by separating of temperature and atmosphere zones thus giving a viable and economic alternative to Pusher type Furnaces.

APPLICATION

The Rotary Hearth Furnaces are extremely versatile and its high throughput and repeatability of results make it particularly suitable for heat treating large quantities of the same parts and can be operated as a standalone unit or can also be interlinked with other plant components.

The Rotary Hearth Furnaces are used for various treatment processes such as case hardening and carburizing (low case depth), neutral hardening, reheating, tempering carbonitriding (low case depth), annealing etc.

The types of products which can be processed are quite varied being Automotive Components, Bearing Components, Forgings, Off Road/Agricultural components, Powdered Metal components and Aerospace components.

VERSIONS
