We supply the finest, most innovative annealing furnaces in the world.

Annealing Furnaces

CEC Annealing furnaces cover a broad range of Steel and Aluminum applications including tempering, normalizing, and aging, and similar automated loading, unloading and natural or forced cooling is possible with roller hearth, tip-up or batch arrangements. More steel applications can be seen under “related information” below.

For Aluminum Annealing (Coil, Foil, Wire) we offer:

  • Automated loading & unloading
  • CEC Axial Blaster Fans
  • Self-cleaning cooling coils
  • A variety of atmosphere protection features
  • Natural or Forced Cooling
  • Tip-up, Roller Hearth, & Batch arrangements

For Steel Annealing we offer:

  • Normalizing of fabrications
  • Tempering
  • Roller Hearth Furnaces
  • Tip-up Furnaces
  • IQ configurations and interface

CEC Aluminum Annealing furnaces are broadly viewed as technology leaders. Whether coil, foil or wire CEC furnace systems integrate ease of loading and unloading, lowered cycle times, integrated self-cleaning cooling and CEC developed and built fans. CEC annealing furnaces are heavy-duty and built for 365 X 24 operation.

For more than 53 years CEC has built custom furnaces for many applications including those needed for metal annealing. CEC has an AMCA type fan test center to assure fans flow at a given pressure and horsepower. Fans are Computational Fluid Dynamic(CFD) matched to customer load configurations that allow existing fixtures, cranes, trays, saddles and products to be incorporated into the furnace and support machine(s) interface.

For Aluminum coil, CEC has developed unique self-cleaning cooling coils which are recirculation fan interfaced to allow improved cooling cycle times with little to no cooling coil maintenance. In large coil applications CEC moves the furnace which allows you improved access to the product load area by your overhead cranes.
