Solar Manufacturing Builds MuShield’s First Vacuum Furnace

“The MuShield Co. of Londonderry, New Hampshire, has commissioned Solar Manufacturing to design their first-ever vacuum furnace. The furnace, built with a SolarVac® Polaris control system and fully compliant to AMS2750E pyrometric specification, is designed to accommodate loads up to 36” wide x 36” high x 72” deep, and a maximum weight of 5,000 lbs. The Solar furnace operates at a vacuum level of 10-5 Torr with the capability of maximum temperatures up to 2400° F, and features an external quench system designed for pressures up to two bar. MuShield is expanding with additional space which will house the new Solar furnace. The company aims to better serve the magnetic shielding industry by providing material designed to protect sensitive electronics from magnetic fields.

“MuShield was already aware of our excellent reputation in the industry, and they were impressed with our facility when they visited earlier this year,” comments Jason Davidson, Solar Manufacturing’s Northeast Regional Sales Manager. “They were also impressed with results of testing performed for them by Solar Atmospheres, so we’re pleased they have placed confidence in Solar Manufacturing to provide their first vacuum furnace.”

Solar Manufacturing designs and manufactures a wide variety of vacuum heat treating, sintering, and brazing furnaces and offers replacement hot zones, spare parts, and professional service.
