Kiln For Aerospace Ceramic Cores


Therser UK the UK's number one Kiln and heat treatment company have recently completed the construction and installation of an Electric Heated Shuttle kiln with Kiln car and in-line tracking a normal capacity of 1.5 m³ Nominal Size for firing to 1250°C (maximum rating 1,300°C).


The kiln has a pre-fabricated kiln frame complete with integral rear mounted element connection chamber. The kiln structure is of a twin design, meaning lower heat losses and a comfortable working environment. Externally the kiln is clad with coloured powder-coated steel plates and stainless steel cladding on the afterburner and the front face of the kiln, which create a natural cooling cavity between the inner and outer skins which will give an excellent “visual finish”.

The kiln also has:

  • A vertical operated door by a motorised cross shaft complete with chain sprockets and guide wheels on adjustable back plates on the four corners of the door, running inside the vertical support channel.
  • Free standing PLC control panel.
  • Car haulage moving system operated by a rack on the kiln car with a motorised spur gear driven by a floor mounted drive motor with a Hand held push button control 
  • Low thermal mass ceramic fibre lining with brick piers for element support trays.
  • Roof mounted motorised automatic exhaust/cooling damper system.
