Kanthal®, part of Sandvik Group specializing in heating technology products and solutions, has expanded its portfolio of furnace rollers to include nickel chromium (NiCr) rollers that are used in low temperature furnace zones. Customers can now achieve cost savings by using Kanthal as a ‘one stop shop’.
The addition of centrifugally cast NiCr rollers complements Kanthal’s existing range of Kanthal APMTTM rollers for use in critical hot zones. Kanthal APMTTM furnace rollers are produced through a powder metallurgy process that gives the material high mechanical strength, designed for ideal use at elevated temperatures of up to 1250 °C (2280 °F).
“We have now expanded our range to include NiCr rollers for lower temperature applications. These are affordable and very cost-effective to run and maintain,” said Xavier Palet Lozano, Global Product Manager at Kanthal.
Through the newly expanded portfolio, customers can achieve additional cost savings by using Kanthal as a single supplier. Xavier Palet Lozano added: “As a result, we can now offer our customers a complete range to meet all their furnace roller demands.”
In addition, Kanthal will showcase its complete range of furnace rollers at two major exhibitions in the United States and Germany. Both events are scheduled for this month.
