Drop Bottom Quench Furnace


  • The Drop Bottom Furnace is inverted type with charge lifting and lowering facility to accommodate the high speed quenching including de-clamping, door opening and quenching.
  • The Drop Bottom Furnace can be stand alone type with charge carrier loader and quenching tank moving on the floor or floor mounted with charge carrier loader and quench tank/s sliding in a pit.
  • As the requirement is very fast quenching it is fully automated by the use of PLC and SCADA. These furnaces can also be used for continuous ageing cycle ranging from 16 – 24 hrs time.
  • Various quench media such as water, glycol or other polymer oils as per process requirement are used.
  • Area of application is generally used in aeronautical industries for solutioninzing and ageing of structural parts, also in forging industries of aluminium alloy forgings.
