VacuumFurnaces.com is a Q&A community where vacuum furnace product and service suppliers connect with commercial and captive heat treaters to share their practical skills and know-how and to establish valuable relationships around niche topics of expertise with vacuum furnace end-users in operations, production, training, maintenance, marketing, sales, and engineering.
Typically if maintained well the life expectancy of a vacuum furnace should be 30 years or more. The critical component is the vessel. It is like the foundation of a house, and if maintained it will last a long time. Cooling water quality is critical to vessel life and longevity. All other components can be repaired or replaces, but when the vessel deteriorates furnace life begins its demise.
