The Vertical Vacuum Furnace (VVF Series) is designed for vertical bottom loading applications. Like the horizontal vacuum furnace, the vertical bottom loading vacuum furnaces utilizes a circular design hot zone that provides for taller and larger work loads. With the hot zone having gas cooling nozzles 360° around the work load, combined with an external gas recirculation blower and fin/tube heat exchanger, the cooling gas is evenly distributed throughout the work area and optimum cooling is achieved.
The VVF Series vacuum furnaces are available in a wide range of standard sizes. Similar to the HVF Series, the vertical bottom loading vacuum furnaces are available in a variety of insulation packages including ceramic fiber, graphite and multiple radiation shields, larger pumping and gas cooling systems. The VVF Series are also available in high pressure quench capabilities up to 10 Bar Absolute.
