ECM Technologies, an industrial furnace manufacturer headquartered in Grenoble, France, has released its new oil quenching furnace system, ECO, which the company states will replace its current sealed quench (SQ) or integral quench (IQ) style furnaces. 

The new ECO furnace system is said to offer cleaner, safer and better performance in comparison to traditional SQ or IQ furnaces on the market.

According to ECM Technologies, when developing this new furnace, the company took into consideration all the key characteristics of SQ or IQ furnaces and eliminated their drawbacks. All development was said to be based on four pillars: environmental impact, efficiency, metallurgical quality and existing inline integration.

The ECO furnace is an electrically heated system, enabling a CO2 emissions reduction of more than 80%. It also allows for higher temperatures, thereby enabling increased productivity through greater throughput, states the company. 

In addition, a safer and more ergonomic environment is provided without open flames and smoke, eliminating the risk of fire hazards.

Furthermore, the ECO furnace can reportedly be integrated with existing SQ or IQ lines using existing pits, conveyors and peripheral equipment (tempers, washers, etc).

ECM Technologies explains that the ECO line allows captive and commercial heat treaters to extend the life and expand the capabilities of its existing SQ or IQ furnace lines. Part quality is also said to reach higher levels with efficient and safe heat treatment processes.
