C.I. Hayes, a Gasbarre Furnace Group company, has recently installed ‘solitaire’ conveyor belt furnaces for the annealing of precious metals to be used in the jewelry industry.

Besides jewelry, the furnace is also suitable for other markets requiring brazing and bright annealing of small, intricate parts. It is equipped with belt widths of 6-12 inches and effective heat lengths of 27-72 inches. Four-sided heat surrounding the muffle provides uniformity and power input with temperature capabilities to 2100°F (1148°C). The furnace can be shipped as a single piece, fully assembled, with single point connections for power, water and atmosphere.
