Harper Intl., Buffalo, N.Y., announces the launch of the HC Series configurable rotary furnaces, for which customers can select specifications online. Complementing its custom designed thermal processing systems; these pre-engineered furnaces are advantageous for clients requiring more economical equipment solutions with shorter lead times.
The HC Series includes a standard set of rotary furnaces that can be configured to order and are available in a number of variations, depending on the client’s specifications for temperature, tube length, heated length, diameter, and number of zones. Clients have the opportunity to use a product selector on the Harper website in which they select specifications, and the proper rotary furnace design configuration is formulated.
Providing the same trusted innovations as Harper’s custom furnace offerings, the new rotary configurations deliver superior temperature uniformity for the continuous processing of advanced materials, including granular, powder, or particulate aggregates operating from 600 to 1100°C.
“The HC Series allows Harper to virtually eliminate a number of up-front design engineering process steps, greatly reducing start-up lead times while offering a more standard product line to those customers looking for off-the-shelf solutions,” says Paul Elwell, Vice President Sales and Marketing. “Additionally, the web-based product selector tool provides an efficient head-start to our client engagement activities.”
