The Sintervac® product line services a variety of robust manufacturing requirements with delicate process control needs. Tungsten and Cemented carbides, performance and structural ceramics, cermets and high alloy steels rpresent a few. There are over 600 Sintervacs® in field service throughout the world today. CVI is the world leader for carbide and structural ceramic applications.
The Sintervac® Jr. furnace processes small test batches of parts through complete sinter cycles, including delube, under operating condtions identical to production size Sintervac® furnaces. Designed for both development and quality assurance tasks, a typical furnace cycle takes less than four hours. Two temperature ranges are available: range A, 1600°C max. for steels and tungsten carbide and range C, 2200°C max. for non-oxide ceramics. Optional eqipment can be selected for automatic temperature control, remote programming, repeated delube cycles, and control of various process parameters.
