Reading time ( words)

BTU International Inc. will exhibit at Heat Treat, ASM's Heat Treating Society Conference & Exhibition, which is scheduled to take place October 24–26, 2017 in Columbus, Ohio. BTU will highlight its controlled atmosphere furnaces in Booth 2524.

BTU's controlled atmosphere belt furnaces are available with temperature ranges up to 1150°C and with various process atmospheres including hydrogen and nitrogen. BTU designs and manufactures inline controlled atmosphere furnaces for a number of applications including: glass-to-metal sealing, direct bond copper, brazing, sintering and heat-treating.

BTU is the industry leader in atmosphere control for continuous furnaces. Whether dealing with high purity muffle applications or general purpose muffle-less applications, BTU has a unique set of capabilities, know-how and experience supporting precision temperature and atmosphere applications. Excellent atmosphere purity is achieved through the use of BTU’s patented gas barrier technology. In addition, BTU’s unique eductor technology can be used to enhance cooling or control process atmosphere. The end result is superior efficiency, superior performance and superior thermal uniformity.

BTU's controlled atmosphere furnaces feature BTU's proprietary WINCON control system. WINCON features a simplified user interface and incredibly powerful analytical capabilities.
