Tophat furnaces

The Concept:

Tophat Furnaces comprise of two modules – a fixed base and a movable lid (Tophat). The product is loaded onto the base after which the lid is lowered over the product and onto the base for firing.
The Advantages:

  • The furnace moves to the load and NOT vice versa
  • The furnace has no moving parts (doors, hinges etc) which maintains rigidity and mechanical robustness
  • As a completely sealed unit with no junctions or joints, thermal losses are minimal and the furnace maintains an
    even heat distribution

Typical Applications:

  • Ceramics
  • Metal treatments
  • Calcining
  • Refractory firing
