Sinterite, a Gasbarre Furnace Group company, has recently installed a 12-zone Continuous Belt Humpback Brazing Furnace, the third furnace supplied to the customer by Gasbarre Furnace Group in the past three years.

This newest furnace is a humpback muffle-channel heating chamber design that includes a Sinterite HyperCooler rapid cooling system and 100% hydrogen atmosphere system. The furnace is utilized for continuous copper brazing of stainless steel materials, and the rapid cooling capability of the HyperCooler provides for desensitization and control of copper braze flow arresting in the 304 stainless steel component assemblies.

The furnace is equipped with a 24 inch mesh belt conveyor system, one-zone inclined entrance section, four-zone two chamber heating section (2100°F/1149°C capability), seven-zone exit cooling system, multiple zone atmosphere control system and HMI control system. In addition, the project included installation of a second HyperCooler system, retrofitted to an existing furnace, also to reduce sensitization of brazed 304 stainless steel.
