Oerlikon LEYBOLD vacuum offers versatile solutions for sophisticated heat treatment and metallurgy processes Oerlikon LEYBOLD vacuum has several from different parts of the world for vacuum systems in metal-working received orders. The advantage of this vacuum solutions, which are adapted to very specific customer needs, consists in cutting the individual through the use of standard vacuum pumps, combined in flexible modular solutions. These orders show the expertise of Oerlikon LEYBOLD vacuum because these vacuum systems are rated by the market as efficient and sustainable. The orders to document also”our successful entry in the strategically important global metallurgy growth market, says Dr. Martin Fairclough, the CEO of Oerlikon LEYBOLD vacuum. Delivery by vacuum for one of the world’s largest industrial furnaces in the SECO/Warwick industrial furnace manufacturer recently surpassed new orders for a vacuum furnace with dimensions of approximately 6 m x 13 m (diameter x height).
This is one of the world’s Vacuum stoves ever be used in the heat treatment industry. In this vacuum furnace coils heat treatment undergo, used in the construction of the new French nuclear fusion reactor ITER. The vacuum furnace is able to heat up a 125-ton coil to a temperature up to 650 C and process impurities are ppm in the range of less than one. To grant a such high purity, it is necessary to establish the complete oven almost made of stainless steel. One of the critical factors is to ensure continuous operation of the oven over several days. It is therefore the vacuum system for compliance with the conditions in the process of immense importance.
