Since 1950 and with over 10,000 units shipped, BTU International has been the trusted name for high-tech customers with a need to solve high-volume thermal processing challenges. BTU’s high temperature belt furnaces have been manufactured in Massachusetts for over six decades with ISO 9001 quality certification safeguarding that each unit is subject to exacting build and test criteria. Today in our 100,000sq. ft. state of the art manufacturing facility, craftsmen with decades of experience ensure the highest quality performance and reliability.
Continuous belt furnaces from BTU are known for long-term reliability, superior process performance, and service excellence. By partnering with BTU, manufacturers can expect a customized solution that will exceed expectations, not only for process performance but for reliability and usable life-time.
BTU’s Controlled Atmosphere Furnace has the industry’s lowest Cost of Ownership and features process temperatures up to 1180°C. BTU’s automated thermal controls utilize segmented heaters to optimize thermal performance resulting in thermal uniformity better than +/-2°C. The system also features flexible atmosphere with Argon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen or forming gas available.
BTU also offers muffle-less Fast Fire furnaces to minimize operating costs. The Fast Fire can be ramped to temperature quickly allowing users to shut the unit down during idle times.
Custom configured dryers are available in both IR and convection configurations in temperatures from 100˚C to 400˚C. The convection dryers can be configured in very wide process widths and can include closed loop convection control.
BTU’s Pusher furnace is the workhorse required for heavy loads and temperatures up to 1800°C. The system features alumina bricking, sophisticated safety controls, and advanced operational software.
BTU’s experienced team of engineers employs the latest technology in furnace system design including CAD, Finite Element Analysis, and Computational Fluid Dynamics. These advanced techniques accelerate the development process while reducing errors and variation in design. In partnership with customers, these tools can be used to analyze and solve the most complex thermal processing challenges resulting in the world’s best performing continuous belt furnaces.
