The MonoTherm is offered in "kit" style, meaning the system is designed for specific customer needs per a customer's choice of standard system options. The configurations can include a 360 degree cooling pattern, or top/bottom, left/right cooling gas flow. Cooling pressures are available from 1.4 to 20 bar positive using nitrogen, argon or helium. Graphite and metallic hot zones are standard options as well as convection heating, soft starters, variable frequency drives and partial pressure control.
Applications for the MonoTherm include vacuum annealing, vacuum hardening and tempering, case hardening (low pressure carburizing), vacuum brazing and vacuum sintering. Special applications and special load sizes make additional processes possible. MonoTherm provides a +/10 degrees Fahrenheit temperature uniformity from 300 to 2,280 degrees Fahrenheit.
