Convection Heating Provides Several Operational Benefits
Ipsen has devoted years of research to new heating designs that achieve better temperature uniformity at all temperature ranges while increasing energy efficiency.
Our latest convection heating design and new flapper nozzle are technological breakthroughs. The flapper nozzle system, a convection turbo-gas outlet port, is simple and reliable. It requires no complex linkage or actuation mechanism. It remains in a closed position unless when cooling, thus reducing heat loss from the hot zone while improving temperature uniformity during heating. Convection heating has been demonstrated to dramatically reduce cycle time, especially for large, dense loads. These superior technologies shorten cycle time and reduce energy consumption, saving both time and money in addition to reducing maintenance worries and expenses.
When adding convection heating to the industry's fastest quenching vacuum furnace, performance of the Ipsen TurboTreater is phenomenal - A 33% savings in time! A 6-bar performs faster than competitions' 10-bar furnaces and achieves more than 100° F/minute on the surface of large dies. Convection heating retrofits are available for most TurboTreaters and MetalMaster vacuum furnaces already in production.
