CEC has supplied industrial Tip-Up furnaces for decades. Also called clam shell furnaces, these machines are often used for heat treatment of large castings, forgings, wrought bars, ingots, or billets for heavy industry.
The Heat Treatment processes performed in these machines include:
Hardening with Quench
Aging or Precipitation Hardening
Annealing or Stress Relieving
CEC has manufactured tip-up furnaces that handle loads of up to 50,000 lbs (22,727 Kg) and operate to 2150°F (1180°C). CEC has excellent refractory designs for the large peripheral seal. We offer robust architecture for the heavy load carrying piers in tip-up applications.
Furnaces can be proportionally heated or pulse fired with various fuel gases. Alternatively the furnace can be electrically heated. We have extensive experience with both heating methods. The top clamshell section of the furnace is hydraulically raised by a full length torsion tube that ensures repeatable opening without lid distortion.
