For some applications, a batch furnace provides the best balance between production rate, flexibility, and equipment cost. A batch furnace can be a Car-Bottom, Box, Pit, or Bell type, with or without a controlled atmosphere.
By definition a batch furnace handles one work load at a time and may be integrated with material handling. Batch furnaces can be electrically heated, or direct or indirect gas-fired to suit your application and preferred source of energy.
