Serthel Industrie specialises in furnaces designed to coat the vanes and blades of jet engines using a treatment process called aluminising, also known as VPA. The process developed by the company allows alternate cycles to take place on loads in a single high-temperature furnace.
The advantage of this aluminizing process is the ability to double the production by separating the treatment and cooling cycles of the loads, resulting in an unparalleled ROI.
The loads are placed in boxes under an airtight bell in which the aluminising treatment is carried out under a shielding gas. A fully computerised aluminising machine comprises:
- 2 mobile housings for the aluminizing treatment;
- 1 high-temperature furnace;
- 1 load-preparation and unloading area;
- 1 confined cooling cell;
- 1 control system.
The dimensions of the loads treated with these installations are:
VPA700 ⌀700 × 1,000
VPA1000 ⌀1,050 × 1,200
VPA1200 ⌀1,200 × 1,800
VPA1400 ⌀1,400 × 1,500
The industrial solutions offered by Serthel Industrie are already present in Safran’s factories in France, China and Mexico as well as in GE’s production units in Poland and Italy.
