CHE Furnaces was tasked with creating a specialized Drop Bottom Furnace tailored for the aerospace industry. This furnace plays a pivotal role in the production of aircraft assemblies using aluminum. Our goal was to devise a heat treatment solution with an incredibly swift seven-second quench time.

The features of this furnace include indirect fired tube burners, a pneumatic hoist for efficient handling, and a quench tank system. It operates within a temperature range of 425 to 1100 °F. The entire system was meticulously designed, fabricated, and assembled on-site at our cutting-edge facility, employing the expertise of AWS-certified welders.

It’s important to note that our system adheres rigorously to industry standards, meeting the specifications of AMS 2750 E, BAC5621, BAC5602, GAMPS5108, and AMS 2770 J for aerospace heat treating equipment. To guarantee quality and integrity, we conducted a comprehensive in-process temperature uniformity survey.

Remarkably, we achieved this project’s turnaround in just 12 weeks, with installation completed in Vista, CA.
