Tophat Furnaces

The Concept: 

Tophat Furnaces comprise of two modules - a fixed base and a movable lid (Tophat). The product is loaded onto the base after which the lid is lowered over the product and onto the base for firing.

 

The Advantages:

  • - The furnace moves to the load and NOT vice versa
  • - The furnace has no moving parts (doors, hinges etc) which maintains rigidity and mechanical     robustness
  • - As a completely sealed unit with no junctions or joints, thermal losses are minimal and the  furnace maintains an even heat distribution     

 

Typical Applications:

  • - Ceramics
  • - Metal treatments
  • - Calcining
  • - Refractory firing
