Sentro Tech is an industrial oven manufacturer based in Cleveland, OH that has been producing high-temperature furnaces since 1998. Our stellar technical support and 100% satisfaction guarantee complement our range of products. We produce standard and custom heating elements made with corrosion-resistant materials. Finally, Sentro Tech devices also offer atmosphere and vacuum control capabilities. As an industrial furnace company, we provide services for various industries, including laboratories, mining, energy, crystal growth, and manufacturing.
While porcelain and pressing furnaces are common in dental laboratories, sintering furnaces are becoming important to translucent zirconia milling laboratories. Homogeneous temperature distribution and ease of use are important for firing and sintering in dental laboratories. The Sentro Tech high-temperature dental laboratory furnace is designed just for this application.
As an industrial gas oven manufacturer, Sentro Tech builds furnaces for student and professor research on university campuses. University lab furnaces often need specific control requirements and pressure ranges. Our custom furnace capabilities can be tailored to the needs of research labs with different sizes and requirements.
Versatile and cutting-edge heating technology are necessary for research laboratories. In chemistry, reliable furnaces pave the way for innovative research. Lab furnaces often need specific control requirements, temperature uniformity, and various customizable options, all of which are offered as features of Sentro Tech’s furnaces.
The energy industry has several uses for high-temperature furnaces. Our furnaces can be used for energy processing and generation from nuclear power plant processing to residential power generators.
Nuclear energy generators harness power by heating water, which turns into steam. The pressure of the steam turns a generator which produces electricity. Nuclear energy is created through nuclear fission, which involves splitting atoms. A nuclear furnace, or reactor, creates heat that produces steam.
Furnaces produce solar power similar to its function in other types of power generation. Powered by sunlight and targeted solar panels, these solar furnaces create heat, produce steam, and the steam pushes through a generator, creating electrical energy. Furnaces can be used in large-scale applications, such as solar power towers, or small-scale applications, such as individual solar furnaces.
Thermal power stations use furnaces to produce steam, which is converted into electrical energy or heat energy. On a smaller scale, furnace boilers can be used as power generators. By heating water and pushing it through a steam turbine, which activates an electrical generator, furnaces help to create energy.
Crystal growing furnaces require stability and control for reliable crystal growth. These furnaces are used for heating a variety of crystals. These options include gallium arsenide, synthetic rubies, zirconium, and platinum crucible materials.
Manufacturing is a broad term, so it makes sense that the industries our company serves as an industrial heating oven manufacturer seem broad at first glance. We currently have furnaces serving at least 5 distinct manufacturing segments, and we hope to continue to add more as we develop new better furnace technology!
Battery manufacturing furnaces are used in various steps, from lead melting to heat drying to label application. The long and detailed process of battery manufacturing requires furnaces that can achieve precise temperatures. It also calls for fast heating and reliable machinery, which Sentro Tech provides.
Ceramics manufacturing is the process of solidifying powder mixtures with thermal energy. Heating elements such as industrial furnaces, ceramic kilns, or tube furnaces are used in this process. Sintering is the most common form of heat treatment used. Others include hot pressing, reaction bonding, and hot isostatic pressing.
Fiber manufacturing starts with the process of extrusion—forcing thick, viscous liquid through tiny holes of a spinneret, forming filaments of semi-solid polymer. These solids are either melted in a high-temperature furnace or dissolved in a solvent. If not melted or dissolved, they must be chemically treated.
Research and development of new materials are aided by high-temperature furnaces. The new materials industry experiments with materials composed of different elements and with different capabilities. Thermal testing with industrial furnaces is one way this research is conducted in materials science.
Whether manufacturing float glass or crafting individual glass bottles, heat is vital to the glass manufacturing industry. To be shaped and formed, high-speed heating elements must melt glass. Float glass is created by spreading melted glass onto hot metal sheets, creating panes of the glass often used in windows. Sentro Tech glass furnaces can be customized for specific sizes and temperature ranges for the glass manufacturer’s needs.
Carbon fiber is produced by bonding carbon atoms. Carbon fibers are bundled, which can be used individually or as part of woven fabric. Graphite fiber, on the other hand, is composed of fibers made from petroleum pitch. These plastics are then heated to a very high temperature using industrial furnaces, such as the Sentro Tech high-temperature furnaces.
We are always working to develop furnace technologies for new industries as new techniques emerge. As a leading industrial oven manufacturer, we serve over 18 distinct industries and look to add more whenever possible!
