Solar Atmospheres Adds Sixth All-Metal Hot Zone Furnace

“Solar Atmospheres recently installed another all-metal hot zone vacuum furnace at its 1969 Clearview Road facility in Souderton, PA. This is Solar’s sixth all-metal hot zone furnace installation, and the fourth for their climate-controlled room. The furnace is a new Mentor model, built by sister company Solar Manufacturing, has a working zone of 12x 12x 18”, and is the first of its kind. The additional furnace increases Solar’s capacity for processing sensitive materials such as PH stainless, nickel-based superalloys, titanium, and ferritic / austenitic stainless steels, yet focuses on smaller lots and one-off items. The furnace makes it possible to reap the benefits of an allmetal furnace while minimizing the overall cost.”
