Carbon Baking Furnaces

Tenova Inc. has designed and supplied carbon baking furnaces for almost every major U.S. carbon electrode manufacturing plant and for many other customers worldwide.

For this purpose, we have provided different types of furnaces to fit the specific product and customer requirements. These furnaces are designed to provide a high quality product in an efficient and cost effective way.

Carbon baking furnace designs include:

  • Car Bottom Furnaces
  • Pit Type Furnaces
  • Rotary Hearth Furnaces

Main features include:

  • Hot recirculating fans
  • Pulse firing
  • Gas incinerators
  • Waste heat recovery
  • Water type seals
  • Automatic cycle control (heating plus cooling)
  • Combustion safety for volatile periods
  • Detarring cycle

Our latest generation of furnaces includes features such as "high velocity on/off" control burners which eliminate the need of recirculation fans while achieving superior temperature uniformity control.
