Custom Vacuum Furnace Serpentine Grid

At Alloy Fabricators of New England, Inc., we fabricated the serpentine tray pictured here for conveying earth mover parts through a roller hearth furnace for heat treatment. Built from a nickel-iron-chromium alloy to withstand the rigors of a high temperature carburizing atmosphere, it featured dimensions of 35″ in length, 35″ in width, and 1.5″ in height. It also incorporated a removable 3.5″ high fence to prevent parts from shifting off the tray when exposed to vibratory conditions created by the heavy component rolling through the heat treating furnace.

This product is an example of only one of the many serpentine trays we have fabricated. We have also manufactured them in rectangular, circular, and annular configurations in sizes up to 8″ in width x 16″ in length with a variety of grid patterns in depths up to 3″.
