Rod Overbend Pit Furnace

The Rod Overbend (RO) pit furnace gives you flexible, efficient performance in a variety of heat treat applications including annealing, normalizing and hardening at temperatures up to 1850°F (2000°F optional). Add the optional sealed retort and circulating fan for bright annealing, carburizing, carbonitriding and processing of cast irons. Accommodate protective atmosphere processes up to 2150°F with the optional inconel retort.
