Description

EBNER HICON® pusher-type furnaces are the most modern available for reheating and homogenizing aluminum ingots for hot rolling. In contrast to conventional furnaces (such as soaking pits) the HICON® pusher-type furnace is a semi-continuous operating facility. HICON® pusher-type furnaces achieve the best possible transfer of energy to the charge using high convection technology, which incorporates powerful function-specific recirculation fans and a finely-tuned baffle system.

HICON® pusher-type furnaces feature the following characteristics:

short heating-up times
fully automatic operation of the facility
low energy consumption
straightforward operation and process control
temperature uniformity throughout the whole charge of < 6 K
long service life of key components
no damage to ingot surfaces
low maintenance
