September 2017: Innovations in Hot Zone Designs for Vacuum Heat Treating Furnaces

Today’s discussion will introduce Halo, a new advancement in hot zone designs.  Halo is a ringless hot zone utilizing HEFVAC, a new high-performance graphite board material for improved thermal efficiency.  Superior mechanical strength of HEFVAC, allowed a self-supporting polygon structure.  We will explore why we have pursued this design concept and its advantages.
