Are you in the market for a new Allcase® Furnace Line?

One question will undoubtedly be whether to select vertical radiant tubes or horizontal radiant tubes.

Many customers struggle with which tube configuration that their Allcase  should be supplied with.  There are many factors to consider, but generally they fall into two (2) major categories.

1. Heating input and the ability of a customer’s work product to be able to accept the input.

If smaller, thin sectioned product is being processed, the work can absorb heat at a quick rate and as such the furnace heating system can be equipped with more input.

Advantage…VERTICAL RADIANT TUBES

If thicker, bulkier product is being processed, the work cannot absorb heat at a quick rate and as such the heating system can be equipment with less input which has a lower carbon footprint.

Advantage…HORIZONTAL RADIANT TUBES

2. Plant layout, physical location constraints. 

If the layout requires that the furnace be located very close to a wall, then no future access for maintenance will be available on the rear wall.

Advantage → Vertical Radiant Tubes

If the layout requires an overhead crane or there are height restrictions, this will limit the available area for maintenance on top of the equipment.

Advantage → Horizontal Radiant Tubes

Fortunately, Surface Combustion offers both styles.
