At CHE Furnaces, we were entrusted with a significant project in response to the needs of the aerospace industry: the design and manufacturing of a cutting-edge Shaker Furnace. This specialized furnace was destined for the production of aircraft rivets made from titanium, a critical component of aerospace manufacturing.

Our mission was clear: to engineer a furnace that could deliver precise atmospheric purged heat treatment for titanium rivets, coupled with a state-of-the-art fresh water cooled quench tank system. The result was a highly efficient system equipped with several advanced features:

Rod Over Bend Heating Elements:

These elements were strategically chosen to ensure consistent and precise heating, critical for the quality of aerospace components. High Vacuum Pump: Essential for maintaining the controlled environment required for the heat treatment process. RA 330 Retort Assembly: A specialized assembly designed to meet the unique demands of aerospace heat treatment.

Quench Tank System:

Featuring a wide operating temperature range, from 1750 to 1900 °F, allowing for flexibility in the heat treatment process. The entire system, from conception to realization, was meticulously designed, fabricated, and assembled onsite at our Anaheim, CA facility, utilizing the expertise of our AWS certified welders.

In terms of industry compliance, rest assured that our system adheres rigorously to the stringent standards set forth by the aerospace sector. Specifically, we meet the requirements of AMS 2750 E and AMS 2770 J for aerospace heat treating equipment. Our unwavering commitment to quality was further underscored by a comprehensive in-process temperature uniformity survey.

The results are impressive.

This custom Shaker Furnace not only meets but exceeds industry expectations, offering a cost-effective solution that ensures the integrity and quality of titanium rivets used in aerospace manufacturing.
