Hayes, a Gasbarre Furnace Group company, is pleased to announce the recent installation of multiple “Solitaire” Conveyor Belt Furnaces for annealing of precious metals to be used in the jewelry industry. In total, this project consisted of three identical conveyor belt furnaces, all manufactured and installed for the same customer.

Named for its compact design and initially developed for brazing and bright annealing of jewelry pieces, the C.I. Hayes “Solitaire” Conveyor Belt Furnace has found great acceptance in other markets requiring brazing and bright annealing of small, intricate parts.

Four-sided heat surrounding the muffle provides excellent uniformity and power input with temperature capabilities to 2100°F (1148°C).
