Our vacuum heat treating and brazing furnaces are designed to be the most energy efficient, highest performing and most technically advanced furnaces on the market. Models range from compact Mentor® furnaces, mid-size horizontal production furnaces, huge car-bottom vacuum furnaces, and vertical bottom loading furnaces. We design for heat treat processes such as hardening, brazing, stress relieving, normalizing, annealing, tempering, and sintering. Our furnaces feature improved graphite insulation materials, curved graphite heating elements, tapered gas nozzles, high velocity gas quench systems, and SolarVac® control systems.

Solar Manufacturing has also developed a name throughout the industry in Aftermarket Support. Our engineers can improve your existing hot zone by designing a replacement hot zone that is durable, energy efficient and will improve cooling and heating. We also offer vacuum furnace spare parts and service.
