Enerzone

Our Basic hot zone has a simple, but tried-and-tested design. It is recommended for temperatures up to 1.350 °C / 2.372 °F under moderate operating conditions. Shield pack, hearth and element supports are made from pure molybdenum and guarantee the highest levels of purity in the furnace. We make no compromises with the heating elements, and use exclusively Plansee ML.

The most cost-effective solution for moderate operating conditions.

Our Premium hot zone employs extremely creep-resistant molybdenum alloys such as ML and TZM for all key components alongside with high-quality stainless steel support structure. Special design features ensure high resistance, improved functionality and a particularly long service life. The higher initial cost of the Premium hot zone is recouped after just a short time.

It represents the ideal solution for demanding operating conditions and a long service life.

With our Enerzone range, we have reduced power consumption by up to a quarter without any compromise on performance. Our engineering group has achieved this by adding more molybdenum layers in the heat shielding, optimizing its design and reducing the weight of the hot-zone. This is made possible by innovative manufacturing techniques and our advanced molybdenum alloys.

For maximum performance and minimum operating costs.
