In our Continuous Furnace (heat treatment of Raw Forgings), the charge is loaded into trays or baskets mounted on trays, and conveyed across the hearth using pushers, rollers or walking beams at a controlled rate. Conveyors and extractors are used to automate and integrate the heat treatment processes into other manufacturing processes at the plant.

In Continuous Hardening and Tempering, charge is loaded in trays or baskets that move through the Hardening Furnace, Quench operation and then through the Tempering Furnace in an automated continuous sequence thereby giving very uniform metallurgical results.
