Industrial Bogie Hearth Furnace 1200°C (64x52x44″ 2288L)

Car bottom furnace PB L2288/12E ia an automatic electrical lifting upward also called bogie hearth furnace or shuttle kiln, this kind of furnaces are mainly used where high temperatures and large specific loading weights are required, and can be primarily found in the area of heating steel slabs and blocks as well as in the ceramics and heat-resistant industry (temperatures between 600° C and 1150° C). The furnace was designed with two independent heating zones, controls separately, heating wires can be replaced easily, furnace chamber temperature uniformity is even.

Product Overview

Car bottom furnace is used for a wide range of industrial heating and heat treatment processes in small, medium and large industries. Car bottom furnace are suitable for the annealing of iron and steel, the tempering and removing of non-ferrous metals as well as the hardening. Furthermore, they are used for the baking and sintering of ceramic applications. The trolley could be driven out and in of the furnace chamber (manually or motorized), the car bottom furnace is accessible from all sides which facilitates the loading and unloading. We, Programtherm design and produce car bottom furnaces as per your needs, and programtherm bogie furnaces makes your heat treatment more successful.

Main Features
