ATLAS Ancillary Equipment

In addition to the ATLAS furnace, Ipsen also provides the entire heat-treating system. This complete atmosphere system provides users with a high level of flexibility as they can execute different thermal processes in each integral quench furnace, as well as expand the system for larger production needs and future increases in demand. Available ancillary equipment includes:

Washer

Ipsen's electrically heated, single-chamber washer allows for effective cleaning of the parts through immersion and spray washing, and it delivers thoroughly dried loads. The washer also features automatic operation interlocked with a washing cycle timer, as well as top- and side-mounted, adjustable-direction, full-cone spray nozzles. Other key features include:

  • High bath temperature for improved cleaning
  • Educators for improved oil removal and reduced heat stratification in the tank
  • Front loading/unloading, pneumatically actuated load door is manually operated

Temper

Ipsen's front loading/unloading temper furnaces provide a typical temperature operating range of 300 °F to 1,250 °F (150 °C to 680 °C) with a temperature uniformity of ±10 °F (±5 °C). This optimium temperature uniformity is maintained by an internal alloy steel baffle system that directs heated air throughout the workload. Additional features include:

  • Center-mounted chain guide that interfaces with the single-chain push/pull head of an external loader
  • Electically heated and gas-fired versions offered
  • Pneumatically actuated, vertical-lift front door

Loader/Unloader Car

The loader/unloader car for the ATLAS furnace allows parts to be loaded into, and removed from, the different heat-treating system components both smoothly and safely. Key features include:

  • Electrically powered
  • Designed for manual or semi-automatic operation
  • Incorporates a heavy-duty frame with structural steel channels and angles for a rigid structure
  • Allows loading and unloading on both sides of the aisle

Endo Generator

Ipsen's Endo Generators feature a modular design and are available in several sizes (G750-G4000) to meet the unique needs of customers. For ease of use, programs are preinstalled for regeneration of the retort (conditioning cycle), starting and cooling down. These generators can be electrically heated or gas fired, and can be equipped with either highly efficient air-cooled or water-cooled heat exchangers. In addition, the amount of endothermic gas can be adjusted to efficiently fit the needs of your heat-treating line.

Load/Storage Tables

Ipsen's load/storage tables for the ATLAS furnace feature non-powered rollers and chain guide for the load car's handling mechanism. This allows for the easy introduction and removal of loads into and out of the system, as well as for the efficient storage of soft and hard loads.
