BMI Builds New Giant Furnace For China

As we have mentioned French furnace builder BMI received an order from Aero Engine Corporation of China (a division of AECC). This furnace is a carbottom style which will be used for titanium annealing and stress relieving applications, among other processes. The useful dimensions are 2500 x 2500 x 1300mm High for a max load of 5 tons. This furnace will be equipped with a full metal hot zone designed and made by long-term Austrian Partner, PLANSEE. This furnace is similar to another one also delivered to China a few years back. The previous furnace had even larger dimension at 2500 x 7000 x 1500 mm for a max load of 7 tons. That particular one was the largest ever built by BMI.
