Elevator Kilns

MODELS TO 3200F/(1760C)


Fuel Fired Elevator Kiln

Successful heat processing of ceramics, metals and glass demands close temperature control and uniformity. That’s why UNIQUE/PERENY Kilns and Elevator Furnaces are routinely used for firing, sintering, calcining, brazing, annealing, metallizing, and other heat treatment of a wide range of products at temperatures from 1000F up to 3200F/(1760C). Microprocessor regulated heat input surrounds and penetrates the work load to provide both temperature control and uniformity. This is especially important with extra dense loads like tightly packed small items or large, heavy, ceramic or metal parts, or crucibles of molten materials.

With an Elevator Furnace, product is easily loaded and unloaded with a motorized lift mechanism that is designed for vibration free movement, even when stopped or started at any point of travel. Complete access to load or unload product quickly is possible because the car which also serves as the furnace hearth can be rolled clear of the furnace area. Additional cars for greater productivity and various muffle retorts for atmosphere work are available optional accessories.
