1.5m Cube Furnace

Our standard 1.5 m cube indicative test furnace is designed to comply with the relevant requirements of EN1363-1, 1363-2 Hydro-carbon curve, and ISO Standards relating to  fire resistance testing of elements of construction.  We have supplied many furnaces of this size to laboratories and private companies through the world.  The equipment has been specifically designed and developed over many years to produce a reliable and accurate method of testing various specimen configurations and essentially consists of a combustion chamber onto which various types of restraint frame containing the specimen can be positioned.  The equipment is automatically controlled to specific time, temperature and pressure conditions and the reaction of the specimen to the heating is assessed against specific performance criteria. Both horizontal and vertical specimens up to 1.5 m sq can be tested together with mini columns and beams.

3m x 3m Vertical Furnace

The vertical furnace is designed to comply with the relevant requirements of EN1363-1, 1363-2 Hydro-carbon curve, and ISO Standards relating to full scale  fire resistance testing of elements of construction.  We have supplied many furnaces of this size to laboratories and private companies through the world.  The equipment has been specifically designed and developed over many years to produce a reliable and accurate method of testing various specimen configurations and essentially consists of a combustion chamber onto which various types of restraint frame containing the specimen can be positioned.  The equipment is automatically controlled to specific time, temperature and pressure conditions and the reaction of the specimen to the heating is assessed against specific performance criteria. Loading of specimens up to 50 tonne can be achieved with the special load frame supplied optional with this furnace.

Bespoke Furnaces for fire testing

We can design a furnace for your requirements, please get in touch to see how we can help.  Various configurations and sizes from as small as 0.5 m cube upto 6 m x 4 m horizontal and 3 m column -250 tonne loading have been supplied to clients in the past.

Bespoke control systems offer long term reliability demonstrated by the thousands of fire resistance tests done every year using it. The system gives the largest customer base for fire resistance testing in the world and a continuous development program which allows regular software updates to both add features and retain compatibility with new operating systems and computer design.

Our systems are designed to integrate with all requirements of modern fire resistance testing. This includes wireless network provision which allows anyone with permission to view test information anywhere in the laboratory. Still and video cameras can also feed information to the logging system. Temperature data can be overlaid on to actual images of the test specimen in real time. Temperature and other data can even be projected onto the specimen surface. Wifi capable PDAs and notebooks can also be used to monitor test information anywhere within the laboratory and additional systems can be provided to allow remote monitoring of the test over the internet. Furnace Construction Company constantly develops its systems to utilise the latest benefits offered by new technology.

About Us

Furnace Construction produce all types of furnaces and high temperature kilns and are world leaders in the specialised field of fire resistance testing.

furnace construction and repairs

Entrenched in engineering design, the companies ability to produce specialised Furnaces and Cremators for demanding applications was soon recognised, first of all in the United Kingdom and progressively across the world. Some early industrial furnaces designed and produced by the company can be seen in the photographs.

Rapid recognition of the companies skills and flair for innovation quickly attracted such major clients as Rolls Royce, I.C.I, Corus, B.P Chemicals, GKN, The Morganite Group and many other important customers.

Furnace Construction’s previous experience and its continuous thirst for new developments and business opportunities ensures the success of the company.

Yet another field taking advantage of the companies expertise is the production of ceramics for the engineering and electronics industry.

A number of large kilns operating at temperatures up to 1750°C have been installed around the world.
