Custom Industrial Furnace vs. Custom Industrial Oven: What are the Differences?

There are numerous key differences that separate the functionality of an industrial furnace from that of an industrial oven. These key differentiators will impact what processes are best suited for your application. The categories that separate industrial furnaces from industrial ovens, include the following:

  • Temperature – The biggest difference between these two processes is the temperature range. Ovens generally ovens operate in temperatures from 250oF – 900oF, while furnaces operate in temperatures of up to 2000oF or higher.
  • Atmosphere – The atmosphere within both systems is relatively similar with both able to operate in an air atmosphere, or an inert-gas atmosphere. However, furnaces are also able to operate in a combustible atmosphere, of hydrogen, exothermic or endothermic gas.
  • Heat Distribution – Industrial ovens release air into a separate heating chamber, which generates a high amount of recirculated air. In comparison, industrial furnaces introduce heat directly to the product. Within a furnace setting the heat source can also be placed in various configurations to provide uniform heating.
  • Applications - Industrial furnaces are often associated with the heat treatment of more robust materials, including metals. A wide range of heat treatment processes can be effectively performed in a furnace, including annealing, tempering, and carburizing. Ovens are often utilized for curing purposes.

Custom Industrial Furnace & Oven Options

Based on your specific application, Kleenair Products offers a broad range of custom industrial furnace and oven options. Kleenair Products is the nation’s premier industrial oven manufacturer and industrial furnace manufacturer. Our knowledgeable experts can produce the following types of custom industrial furnaces and ovens:

Titanium and Super Alloy Forging Furnace

Forging Furnaces

A forging furnace is used to heat metals to their forging temperature prior to or during the forging process. Our custom forging furnaces provide superior temperature uniformity and usability to ensure that all process temperatures are met during your forging operation.

Metal materials must be heated to their forging temperature to be forged. As such, the temperature requirements of a forging furnace depend on the material being worked. Materials like aluminum can be forged at relatively low temperatures, from 700° to 1,000°F (371° to 538°C); other materials, such as titanium and zirconium, can require temperatures that exceed 2,250°F (1,232°C).

Automated Tip Up Batch Furnace System

Heat Treating Furnaces & Ovens

Austenitizing, stress relieving, annealing, normalizing, aging, and other heat treating operations require precise control of temperature and processing time to ensure that the treated materials undergo the necessary changes. Our custom heat treating ovens feature fully programmable controls and optional automated material handling and quenching systems for reliable heat treating.

 

Multitube Molybdenum/Tungsten Reduction Furnace

Tungsten & Molybdenum Reduction Furnaces

Tungsten reduction and molybdenum reduction are carefully controlled metal processing operations. Our reduction furnaces provide precision temperature control and uniformity, and are readily compatible with hydrogen process atmosphere requirements. Advanced control systems make them easy to program for complex operations.

Our custom tungsten and molybdenum reduction furnaces feature state-of-the-art controls and HMIs (human-machine interfaces) for precision control of your reduction processes. With our easy to use control systems, programming the temperature, time, and atmospheric requirements of your reduction furnace is a snap.

Pusher Investment Cast Burnout Preheat Furnace

Titanium & Zirconium Reduction/Distillation Furnaces

Titanium and zirconium reduction and distillation processes require a furnace with precise temperature control and reliability. Kleenair’s custom reduction and distillation furnaces are built to meet your performance requirements and easy to program for strict process management.

Our innovative, intuitive controls make it easy to program your reduction/distillation furnace to your time, temperature, and process atmosphere requirements. Optional automated material handling systems provide enhanced productivity and operator safety.

Hydrogen Atmosphere Pusher Sintering Furnace

Powdered Metal Sintering/MIM Furnaces

In powdered metal sintering and metal injection molding (MIM), fine granular metal is mixed with special binders to create a slurry that can be poured, pressed, or injected into a mold to form the part shape. Metal sintering furnaces and MIM furnaces provide precise temperature to debind and sinter the parts, which leaves solid metal parts behind.

The extreme temperatures of the sintering furnace can reach up to 3,300°F (1,816°C). Parts can be sintered into the final part shape or in a raw shape that requires additional machining or finishing.

Investment Casting Furnace

Investment Casting Furnaces

Investment casting is a complex, multi-stage process. A key phase in investment casting is the dewax and preheat of ceramic molds that will be used to contain molten metal and create the end part. An investment casting furnace provides the high and consistent temperatures required to fully harden ceramic molds and melt out the wax that gave the molds their initial shape.

Intuitive software and custom functionality give you precision control of the temperature, duration, and processing atmosphere of your investment casting operation.

Quenching Systems

Quenching is a critical step in many heat treating and metal processing operations. Kleenair can provide a custom quenching system that is seamlessly integrated with your industrial furnace, with customized controls and automated material handling technology for fast and efficient heat-and-quench processing.

We can also provide custom automated material handling systems to improve productivity and operator safety. Our custom robotic manipulators will move your materials from one stage to the next, quickly, and efficiently. All with just one push of a button. Our automated material handling technology can transfer heated parts from the furnace to the quenching tank in 10 seconds or less.
