Silcarb has just finished installing a sintering furnace for zircornia inserts. The furnace has a double door for ease of loading I.e loading and unloading from two ends.The furnace is manufactured using ultra lightweight refractory thereby reducing both the energy consumed for sintering and also reducing the surface load on the heaters.
The expected life of these mosil heaters manufacured by silcarb is in excess of three years of continious operation.
The furnace is rated for 1800 degrees c and operating every cycle at 1750 degrees c with a soaking time of 12hours at these eleviated temperatures. Owing to the ultra light weight refractory a very high ramp up in possible when required.
