Procedure for Safe Running of Vacuum Furnaces

A furnace is typically run at temperature between 500 o C- 1200 o C. Because of such elevated temperatures, furnaces require a lot of safety precautions in their normal operations. Because of requirement of better products many times it is essential that heating inside furnace be done under vacuum. Such a furnace is called a vacuum furnace.   Advantages…


Leakage Detection and Prevention in Vacuum Systems

Leaks pose biggest challenge to engineers handling vacuum systems. Leakages cripple the work and are invariably time consuming to detect.    This blog post is about two major issues related to leakage – Detection and Prevention. Leakage Detection Following are three methods of leakage detection–  Physical Verification: – This should be used if even roughing…
