Sheet Metal Conveyor Belt Furnace
Sheet metal conveyor belt furnaces are characterised by a simple and uncomplicated construction. The powder is dosed directly onto a sheet metal conveyor belt and is transported through the muffled furnace system and the downstream cooling zone, in a protected atmosphere. As a rule, such systems have 'open' inlet and outlet cross-sections. Generating an atmosphere in the furnace that can be compared to a system with air locks often leads to higher protective gas consumption. Due to their simple construction, such furnace systems are often used as reduction furnaces for high throughput. Sheet metal conveyor belt furnace characteristics.
