of their reputation for delivering high quality products at an affordable price.

Model 42GT-H12 was customized as a benchtop unit. With a chamber size of 9” x 12” x 12”, this oven is insulated with 5” of both insulating firebrick and mineral wool backup. 4 KW power allows fast heat up to 1200°F.  GT ovens, built for operation using inert atmosphere, are crafted with a continuously welded outer steel shell and gasketed roof plate. A strong seal on the double pivot door is achieved with a square gasket around the door perimeter to form a tight seal to the oven face-place. Swing bolts with T handles make clamping easy.  The stainless-steel liner baffles the work chamber from the side wall heating elements and directs the air flow horizontally through the chamber for uniform heating. Hueter choose a Honeywell DC2500 temperature controller with a Soak Timer to shut off heating elements at the end of a programmed cycle in addition to a Flowmeter mounted and piped to the oven for easy connection their atmosphere supply. Hueter plans to use the furnace primarily around 600°F for 2 hour cycles to achieve a specific Rockwell hardness with small lots of Becu pins under a nitrogen atmosphere to reduce surface oxidation in order to achieve a scale free, bright finish.

After installation, Adam notes “Right now the oven is running like a dream! I am completely satisfied with my Lucifer Benchtop Oven and your team has given me great support along the way.”
