VF-40 Vacuum Furnace
• 7’ x 7’ Footprint Fits Your Mfg. Cell
• Utilizes Quick, Clean Induction Heating
• Heats To 1900°F In Less Than 15 Minutes
• For Brazing & General Purpose Heating
• Enables Continuous Flow Manufacturing
Our VF-40 Vacuum Furnace is designed to heat parts of virtually any shape in a high temperature, high vacuum environment. Although the compact 7’ x 7’ footprint fits easily into your manufacturing cell, our vacuum furnace can reach temperatures as high as 2100°F. The chamber has a typical ultimate vacuum of 5x10-6 Torr with a leak rate of less than 3 microns per hour.
With the VF-40’s quick, clean induction heating system, 1900°F can be reached in less than 15 minutes. Cool down to 1200°F from maximum temperature can be achieved in 5.5 minutes. Temperature uniformity is rated at ±25°F at 2000°F.
The standard hot zone of the VF-40 has a 12” ID, 17” height and volume of 1.11 cu. ft. The chamber is mounted on a heavy duty stainless steel frame that houses all the required equipment for vacuum, atmospheric and system control, as well as the induction heating station.
The VF-40’s efficient induction heating system provides economical operation. The typical operating cost is just $5.13 per hour, based on $0.15/kwh and $0.40/ft3 Ar.
To maximize operator safety, the heating system is fully isolated. Safety interlocks protect access to the vacuum furnace chamber and manual controls. Other operator safety features include a light curtain, emergency stop and other warning systems built into the software and hardware.
