ACCESSORIES

All furnaces & ovens are equipped with a Honeywell digital temperature controller and are completely wired, ready for connection to main power supply.  Some models may require assembly of vertical lift doors, hearth plates and/or atmosphere equipment.  Following are optional accessories to enhance your furnace operation.

Controllers/Instrumentation

  • Overtemp System – Safety system complete with a high limit digital controller, separate magnetic contactor and thermocouple assembly for automatic furnace shutdown in the event of a high temperature excursion.  Recommended by NFPA Code 86C for unattended furnace operation. 
  • Fusible Disconnect Switch – Fusible disconnect switch wired and mounted on furnace required by OSHA if means of disconnecting power is not located nearby. (Fuses not included.)
  • Input Timer – Timer proportions power to heating elements reducing kilowatt hours permitting lower operating temperatures.
  • Seven Day Timers - Automatic furnace start up or shutdown at a preset time with weekend omitting feature.
  • Soak Timers - Digital soak timers which begin timing when the operating temperature is reached.
  • Program Controllers - (in lieu of standard single setpoint controller) Instruments which stores profiles for ramping and soaking at varying rates and durations during the heating cycle.

  • Cascade Controllers - An instrument which accurately controls the setpoint inside the retort of atmosphere (AM) models.
  • Pen Recorders - Circular or strip chart pen recording instruments which provide a hard copy print out of the heat cycle.

  • Control Panels - (in lieu of standard furnace-mounted panel) Freestanding NEMA 1 or 12 panel to house all instrumentation & power controls for isolation from furnace.

Atmosphere Equipment

  • Flowmeter - Adjusts the flow of atmosphere (CFM) entering the furnace. Mounted on side of furnace, ready for connection to atmosphere supply.
  • Regulator - Reduces atmosphere pressure from high pressure tanks to low pressure suitable for connection to atmosphere inlet.
  • Muffle Thermocouple - A thermocouple to indicate the temperature inside a retort.
  • Inert Door Curtain - A pipe strip mounted below the furnace door opening providing a vertical stream of atmosphere to minimize disruption of the chamber environment.
  • Atmosphere Safety System - Required by NFPA code 86C for operation with flammable atmosphere.  System will automatically purge with inert gas upon loss of flammable atmosphere pressure, electrical failure or loss of temperature.
  • Supervised Burn Off – For burning of flammable gasses exiting furnace.  Complete with pilot assembly, solenoid and low pressure switches.
  • Supervised Flame Curtain – A strip curtain for operation with natural gas.  Complete with pilot assembly, solenoid & orifice.
