Certain firing or sintering processes require a gas-fired chamber furnace. Short heating times due to the high power are a convincing argument. The chamber furnaces with powerful gas burners cover a wide variety of these processes. In the basic version the burners are manually ignited once at the start of the process. The automatic control system then takes over control of the temperature curve. At program end, the burners are automatically switched off. Depending on the process, the furnaces can be equipped with automatically controlled fan burners and safety technology for debinding. Especially in case of larger binder concentrations, gas furnaces have the advantage that the exhaust quantity can be significantly reduced as the binders are burnt off in the furnace, providing for downsizing of the exhaust cleaning.

Gas-Fired Bogie Hearth Furnaces up to 1400 °C for Firing or Sintering in Air or under Reducing Atmosphere

WB 3360/14 for reducing firing of porcelain Combi furnace system consisting of one gas-fired furnace WB 11000/HS and two additional bogies incl. bogie transfer system and incl. necessary park rails

Furnace chamber with eight high-speed burners

Gas-fired bogie hearth furnaces distinguish by their unique efficiency. The use of high-speed burners allows for short heating times. The burners are arranged according to the furnace geometry providing for a optimum temperature uniformity. Depending on the furnace dimensions, the burners can alternatively be equipped with recuperator technology to save energy. The high-quality, long-life fiber insulation with storage capacity provides for short heating and cooling times.

  • Tmax up to 1400 °C, depending on furnace design
  • Powerful, sturdy high-speed burner with pulse control and special flame control in the furnace chamber provide for optimum temperature uniformity
  • Operation with city gas, natural gas or liquified gas
  • Fully automatic PLC control of the temperature as well as monitoring of the burner function
  • Reduction-resistant fiber insulation with low heat storage provides for short heating and cooling times
  • Dual shell housing provides for low outside temperatures
  • Exhaust hood with fittings for further discharge of the exhaust gases
  • Over-temperature limiter with adjustable cutout temperature for thermal protection class 2 in accordance with EN 60519-2 as temperature limiter to protect the furnace and load
  • Defined application within the constraints of the operating instructions

Additional equipment

  • Automatic lambda control to set the furnace atmosphere
  • Safety concepts
  • Exhaust air and exhaust gas piping
  • Recuperator burners utilizing part of the waste heat in the exhaust tract to preheat the combustion air and considerably contribute to energy saving
