Solar Atmospheres Adds Sixth All-Metal Hot Zone Furnace

All-Metal Vacuum Furnace

September 9, 2020 – Solar Atmospheres recently installed another all-metal hot zone vacuum furnace at its 1969 Clearview Road facility in Souderton, PA.

This is Solar’s sixth all-metal hot zone furnace installation, and the fourth for our climate-controlled room. The furnace is a new Mentor model, built by sister company Solar Manufacturing, has a working zone of 12″ x 12″ x 18”, and is the first of its kind. The additional furnace increases Solar’s capacity for processing sensitive materials such as PH stainless, nickel-based superalloys, titanium, and ferritic / austenitic stainless steels, yet focuses on smaller lots and one-off items. The furnace makes it possible to reap the benefits of an all-metal furnace while minimizing the overall cost.
