Item#VF368 Solar Manufacturing Vacuum Furnace 2 Bar – Like New

History: This furnace was previously installed in a customer’s facility, fully tested and accepted, but was never placed into service, therefore it is like-new and is in excellent condition. The furnace went into operation in May, 2013 and was only run for a few months during their qualification process. Subsequently, the process that they were developing went away and the furnace just sat and collected dust. However, it was under vacuum and tied into a Dry Coolers system (not included) that Solar Mfg provided charged with water treatment. Everything is completely intact.
