Summary

There are many considerations to contemplate when choosing the design for a high-temperature furnace. Three areas that could influence the choice of one design over another are binder removal, atmosphere control, and effluent considerations. Specifications must be properly decided on to ensure that a furnace does the required job and produces a good, consistent product.
