The Protherm high velocity system
Bespoke design and manufacturing
Our furnaces are meticulously designed and manufactured to your unique needs and requirements, with over one-hundred of our furnaces in use today. Extensive use of technologies such as computer-aided design (CAD) allow us to optimise the design, such as the size of firing lanes and burner positions.
Completed furnaces are usually shipped complete with thermal insulation, burners, combustion controls, and pipework - ready for immediate installation. Furnaces for kettles up to 12.5M in length have been shipped complete with the kettle as a single unit weighing over 50 tonnes.
|Advantages of High-Velocity Firing
|Optimum Heat Transfer
|Heat transferred to both side and end walls over full height of kettle walls
|High Recirculation of Furnace Gases
|Ensures even heating to kettle walls
|Extended Kettle Life
|Uniform heating coupled with full utilisation of available kettle wall area for heat transfer
|Minimum Number of Burners
|High reliability, low maintenance, and minimum spares requirement
|Fast Response to Load Changes
|Fast Simple Site Installation
|Equally Suited to Large or Small Kettles
