SCHWING Technologies manufactures fluidized bed furnaces.
SCHWING Technologies engineers and manufactures fluidized bed heat treatment systems. With this especially safe and time-efficient technology, metal or non-ferrous components are immersed into a retort filled with an inert, gas-fluidized oxide powder. The benefits of this fluidized bed process are its rapid heat transfer capabilities and excellent temperature uniformity. Partial heat treatment and hot-shaping are possible as well. Fluidized bed systems are also available as a quenching bath for gentle, fast cooling. SCHWING heat treatment systems are heated indirectly via electric heaters or gas burners and can be used over a large temperature range from room temperature to 2,200° F. Components can be easily immersed in the fluidized bed, and in the shortest amount of time they can be:
Quenching and aging are also possible and offer major benefits for some industries. The emphases of the applications are energy-saving hardening of tools, low-warping or non-warping part treatment as well as the quick treatment of special parts.
