Top and bottom load vacuum furnaces are best for your long or tall loads, cylindrical products, and vertically stacked components.
The top load vacuum furnace is designed with a top cover or lid-lifting device to provide access to the furnace.
The bottom load furnace incorporates a retractable powered hearth car to support the load. A ball screw elevator drive is used to raise and lower the hearth car and load into and out of the furnace.
Why do metal manufacturers love vertical vacuum furnaces?
- Space saving design for tight facilities
- Process odd or complex shapes
- Consistent part quality throughout the furnace
- Perfect for high loads
A crane may be required to load or unload components. Vertical vacuum furnaces are designed to make crane loading as efficient as possible.
