Walking Beam Furnaces
Our Walking beam furnace is mainly used within the steel industry for applications like annealing, forging, heating, stress relieving, quenching and tempering with a maximum operating temperature of 1100°C. The material is gradually fed through the furnace with the help of the water cooled beams which lift and move the goods a short step at a time in the direction of transport.
The walls are made of refractory bricks. The Walking beam furnace drive system is protected from scales by sealing spring steel and arrester. The beams are equipped with an integrated cooling system to guarantee a long lifetime and low downtime. The Walking beam furnace is equipped with a door that opens and closes gradually after the goods pass through the furnace.
The furnace can be delivered separately or as a part in a fully automatic furnace line with conveyors and automatic charging equipment like handling robots etc. to guarantee a high productivity rate. All of our industrial furnaces and ovens delivers with complete documentation and CE – Certificate according to LVD, EMC and Machinery Directive.
The Advantage of Using A Walking Beam Furnace
Walkin beam furnaces are essentially state-of-the-art reheating furnaces that are extremely efficient. The stock to be processed is kept on stationary ridges, with a revolving beam that moves it along as well as through the furnace. This continues until the stock reaches the exit, when the revolving beam is back at the entrance of the furnace. It is reported that substantial savings are achieved in electricity and fuel consumption by the installation of a walking beam furnace that uses a high-tech system to regulate combustion.
Uses of A Walking Beam Furnace
A walking beam furnace is used mainly in order to reheat unfinished products like bars, wires, rebars, tubes, and various structural shapes to a uniform temperature, before entering the shop area of an industrial facility. These adopt a four-function-cycle in order to guide a product within the furnace by doing the four functions of lift, traverse, lower as well as return. A walking beam furnace works mostly by means of natural gas.
