CENTORR VACUUM INDUSTRIES SHIPS PRECISION BRAZING FURNACE FOR US PRODUCTION FACILITY

July 2006 - Nashua, NH -- Centorr Vacuum Industries announced it has shipped three(3) state-of-the-art precision Workhorse® Vacuum Brazing furnaces to a leading manufacturer of glass/ceramic and ceramic-to-metal seals for demanding applications.

The standard Workhorse furnace design was completely upgraded to achieve precision brazing and heat treating. The improved components include thermocouple survey ports, dedicated load thermocouple, cooling fan, and a special partial pressure control system. This control system reduces the chance of damage to the hot zone due to vaporization of lower melting temperature constituents in braze filler metals. The fully updated unit also included digital water flow switches, improved air handling package, Varian diffusion pump, and Leybold mechanical pumping system. The system is outfitted with a computer and HMI control system for easy recipe generation, controller configuration and data recording functions.
