Used Vacuum Furnace Sales

Over the course of the past two months we have run across and listed a used, very large 2 Bar GM Enterprises vacuum furnace and two relatively new Ipsen Titan 2 bar vacuum furnaces. Beyond the fact that that each has two bar quenching what else do they have in common? The answer would be that each sold very quickly, as a matter of fact two sold within days. What this tells us that at least in the North American market there is a real shortage of good used vacuum furnaces which shows that the captive and commercial heat treating market remains very strong in 2019.
