Vacuum Furnace for Oil Removal

Removing residual oil from the molding or stamping process of parts before subsequent heat treatment.

A vacuum furnace for oil removal is employed to eliminate residual oil from parts produced through molding or stamping processes. This process is conducted prior to further heat treatment, commonly before soldering. It is crucial to ensure the cleanliness of the part before the soldering operation. The oil removal process includes heating the part to the temperature at which the oil evaporates under vacuum conditions. Furnace temperature is meticulously controlled using a multi-zone heating system, enabling precise temperature adjustments. A specially designed pump system extracts oil vapor from the furnace space, and it is then condensed in the outlet system. The recovered oil is stored in a dedicated tank.
