Highly Acidic Cleaning Environment Case Study
Adapting Our Furnace to a Specialized Need
The design of every Pollution Control furnace starts with the material to be processed. Although our standard oven types and sizes accommodate most cleaning requirements, we are often challenged with designing Burn-off Furnaces that must clean highly unusual materials requiring varying temperatures, cycle times, instrumentation and furnace structural considerations. The furnace in this photograph was constructed of stainless steel because the materials to be cleaned generated a highly acidic environment during operation. It was determined that stainless steel would withstand the corrosive effects of this highly acidic environment much better than standard carbon steel, thereby greatly extending the furnace's operating life and effectiveness.
