  • The robust construction of LCF industrial chamber furnaces makes them ideal for applications such as the heat treatment of steels and alloy, ceramics sintering and aerospace heat treatment.

    The LCF industrial furnace range is often customised in order to precisely meet the user’s requirements. This range also provides a foundation upon which a wide range of custom modifications can be added. Typical examples of which are the more sophisticated control systems and data recording that is required for applications such as AMS 2750E heat treatment under Nadcap. Solutions are available to handle heavier loads or assist in loading and unloading the furnace, or larger chamber sizes than are offered in the standard range.
