1.  SECO/VACUUM Vector Vacuum Furnaces

   Vector high pressure gas quenching furnaces are the ideal solution for heat treating. Vector is a vacuum furnace with a round graphite or all-metal hot zone. These furnaces can be used for most standard hardening, tempering, annealing, solution heat treating, brazing and sintering. Additionally, they can be used with SECO/VACUUM’s optional patented vacuum-carburizing technologies (FineCarb®) and prenitriding (PreNit®) and the SimVac® process simulation package is included at no extra charge. With hundreds of systems installed worldwide, SECO/VACUUM’s high pressure quench furnaces have proven record of high performance technology.

2 Increased Vacuum Furnace Throughput with Multi-Tier Fixtures:

  Double or triple your vacuum furnace throughput by using
   a two-tier or three-tier fixture to utilize unused work zone space. 
   Moly and TZM moly grids with superior design features.   Also,
   very short lead times (typ. 1 week ARO) for 1" x 24" x 36" size
   or 1.5" x 36" x 48" size single layer TZM moly grids.  Other sizes
   available with normal lead times. 

SSi Products:

    a.  "E-Trim":  Cut your furnace natural gas bill by 20-30%.  Possible incentive programs.
    b.  "Portable Low-Range Dewpointer":  Measure your incoming N2 or Argon dewpoint
    c.  "SuperDATA Reporting Module" - Reports on Furnace Utilization, Costs per Cycle, etc.
          Note:  SSI has scheduled user training sessions in SuperDATA
    d.  "Cat-100":  Replace or augment shim stock carbon testing with SSI's "Cat-100" precision
          measurement system for quickly and accurately determining carbon potential in furnace
          atmospheres.  Have answers in minutes after removing your sample from the furnace!
