The system was accepted in December during on-site trials in the SecoWarwick Meadville, PA manufacturing facility.
Michael Lister, Vacuum Team Leader, remarked that the high vacuum furnace is ideal for captive and commercial heat treating as well as aerospace and brazing operations. According to Lister, “These units are unique to the industry, designed with our proprietary linear clamping ring and other key components that do not use rotating shaft seals. By eliminating rotating shaft seals, we’re able to reduce the number of vacuum leak pain points for our customers who are concerned about maximum uptime and availability.”
