CENTORR VACUUM INDUSTRIES SHIPS NEW WORKHORSE 2ND GENERATION FURNACE DESIGN TO MASSACHUSETTS FIRM FOR PRECISION BRAZING


August 2014 - Nashua, NH -- Centorr Vacuum Industries announced it has shipped its first redesigned flagship Workhorse™ Vacuum furnace to a Massachusetts company for its US production facility.

CVI's Workhorse furnaces were first introduced in 1967 and the original design had the staying power that few furnace designs can match. After selling over 400 Workhorse furnaces for precision brazing, heat treating, annealing, degassing, and sintering, CVI began a complete upgrade to the design of the furnace in late 2013.

Centorr engineers updated the furnace offering with a number of design improvements including: an all stainless steel chamber, upsized diffusion pumping system, updated computer control system with touchscreen monitor, streamlined design of all utility connections resulting in a sleek, more professional appearance, and several hot zone improvements for longer life in difficult process environments.

While implementing these changes, CVI's engineers and manufacturing group were also able to reduce the price for the equipment by 25%.

Today's 2nd generation Workhorse furnace is available in sizes from 1 cu ft to 12 cu ft, and temperatures of 1000°C, 1315°C, 1650°C, and 2200°C in either low or high vacuum configurations. Several options are also available for customizing the unit to add debinding capability, fast cooling, or operation in Hydrogen gas.

CVI's most recent shipment of its Workhorse II GEN II design was to a Massachusetts firm that designs and manufactures a broad line of sensing products for the industrial market.

Their furnace offering ranges from large commercial and production units with hot zones over 3m x 3m x 3m, to smaller Lab and Research & Development furnaces for use at temperatures up to 3500°C.
