  • What is a Rotary Tube Furnace?

    By definition, a rotary tube furnace is a heat-treating circular furnace, which rotates during heat-treatment. Samples are transported through the furnace in a circular path as they are heated. Rotary tube furnaces generally burn pulverized, solid, gaseous or liquid fuel into its working section, and then the heating gases created flow towards the sample. These furnaces feature a metal drum ...

  • Simulation of foundry environment for improving occupational exposure to heat stress conditions

    A worker in a foundry, especially near the furnace, is affected by several heat-related adverse health outcomes arising from non-ionising radiation emitted by molten metal. Such workers are likely to be affected by heat cramps, exhaustion, stroke, etc. Hence, the design of a proper furnace environment is an important issue to avoid these health hazards. In this study, the furnace environment is ...

  • Used Furnaces & Ovens

    Industrial ovens and furnaces are both heated chambers used to process raw materials at higher temperatures than what can be obtained in open-air systems. There is a range of heat treatments possible with both industrial furnaces and ovens, and the main purpose of any heat treatment is to change the mechanical of physical properties of a material. Some examples of materials that benefit from ...

  • Electrosteel: slow growth, great future

    Last year, ferrous scrap accounted for 44% - or some 425 million tonnes - of the metallic raw materials used worldwide in steel production. The balance was made up of iron ore, tonnages of which far exceeded scrap although its ferrous content is, of course, much lower. Of those 425 million tonnes, three-quarters was used in electric arc furnaces (EAFs) operated by the so-called ‘mini-mills’ and ...

  • Magnesia Bricks

    Magnesia bricks description Magnesia bricks, also known as magnesia carbon bricks, are a kind of alkalescency refractory bricks that made from the sintered magnesium with its content of 87%-97% and that are combined with silicate. Since its combination composition is mainly CMS-M2S system, its Load softening temperature is low and thermal shock resistance is poor that determine its application ...
