Designed to reduce processing time and improve process control, it can be installed in production environment continuous-belt sintering furnaces with or without modification to the furnace itself.
The sensor system can be used to monitor the delubing process by measuring relative concentrations of CO2. By monitoring CO2, which is the main by-product of the de-lubrication of iron parts, a sintering furnace operator can determine whether the de-lubrication atmosphere and belt speeds are optimal for the removal of lubricants.
If the de-lubrication atmosphere is not ideal sooting can occur, which leads to part rejection. Partial delubing may also occur and if excess lubricant remains post delubing. Voids and surface cracks can also occur during high temperature sintering.
The standard line of fluidized fill shoes has undergone many changes over the past few years. The 2012 and 2013 lines of our standard fill shoe sizes are more advanced than before with fewer parts, more modularity, and easier servicing routines. The 2013 Line in particular allows for replacement of the porous filters while the shoe is still installed on a powder press. Contact us for more information and to request 3-view drawings of a shoe that will work for your pressing requirements.
