STANDARD EQUIPMENT   Back to Top
All Models
— 208 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— 230 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— 460 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— Other electrical characteristics available

Wall and floor insulation, 11" thick, consisting of:
— 4-1/2" of 2600°F insulating firebrick
— 2-1/2" of 2300°F insulating firebrick
— 4" of 1900°F, 18-1/2 lbs/cf block insulation

Roof insulation, 10" thick, consisting of:
— 2" of 2600°F, 8 lbs/cf ceramic fiber blanket
— 8" of 2300°F, 8 lbs/cf ceramic fiber blanket

Furnace shell is made of 3/16" thick steel plate reinforced with structural steel. Doorsill constructed from firebrick to protect furnace during loading. Ceramic hearth plates are 2" thick and supported by firebrick piers. Soft insulation on door provides an excellent heat seal by pressing against the vestibule refractory and the 1/2" thick steel front plate. Exterior painted with Trilite Green enamel.

Each features completely wired, side access UL listed control panel assembled on the furnace enclosing terminals for incoming power, temperature controllers, push buttons and pilot lights.

Electric Models
Safety devices as listed at the top of this bulletin. Heating element contactors electrically interlocked with door to shut off power to heaters as door opens and restore power when closed. Heating elements located at sides, rear and under hearth. High temperature alloy rod overbend heating elements hanging from the vertical walls by "J" hooks. Rear mounted power transformer feeding low voltage heating elements.

Gas Models
— 1,000 BTU natural gas at 2 psig pressure:
    1" NPT inlet up to 800,000 BTU/HR;
    1-1/4" NPT 850,000 to 1,100,000 BTU/HR;
    1-1/2" NPT at 1,500,000 BTU/HR
— Other gas characteristics available

Safety devices as listed at the top of this bulletin. Automatic pre-ignition purge period and push button electric ignition contributes to ease of operation. Modulating gas burners fire beneath hearth from opposing sides to circulate heated air through work space. Gas burners protected with electronic flame safety relay. Door interlock switch drives main burners to low fire when door is opened and restores control when door is closed.
 
ELECTRIC DOOR
Door pivots upward above furnace, clearing front for easy loading. In the closed position, full door weight seats door firmly against furnace face. Structural steel pivot arms are supported at furnace sidewalls by bearings and connected to a heavy duty electromechanical actuator. The door is controlled by a switch at the furnace control panel.


AIR DOOR
Door rises vertically in front of the furnace hanging from heavy duty roller chain, sprockets, shaft and pillow block bearings. In the closed position, rollers at the sides of the door engage support brackets to force the full door weight against the furnace face. Large diameter air cylinder rotates support shaft to lift the door. The door is controlled by a manual air valve with supply filter, lubricator and regulator.
