Furnace Fans

High Temperature Resistance

IPS/Stanwood’s cast blades are designed both to provide the best performance, service, and quality casting. We examine each and every fan casting including a static balancing process. In addition, each fan is examined between the critical hub and the blade area. The shafts are precision machined utilizing a nickel chrome alloy and welded utilizing a special technique to ensure a sound weld. The finished assembly is then dynamically balanced using our state-of-the-art system utilizing advanced electronics and programming to simulate a furnace situation.

In many cases old fans can be reconditioned and balanced inexpensively. At times it may be necessary to replace the shaft or blade, but this replacement generally results in an expenditure less than that of a new fan. IPS/Stanwood Corporation maintains an inventory of the more common cast fan blades and round bar stock to reduce lead times.

Whether used for basic metals production, sintering, austempering, brazing or any other thermal processing requirement, IPS/Stanwood Corporation will provide muffles designed to give you maximum service life for you application.

Muffles designed by IPS/Stanwood Corporation utilizes a fully corrugated sheet of uniform material for each section. This is formed and assembled with a side weld. The exclusion of the corner weld usually associated with the design of this product eliminates the high-stress concentration which generally results with corner welding.

Radiant Tubes

Various Configurations

Utilizing all cast, all wrought or a combination of both types of materials, IPS/Stanwood Corporation radiant tubes can be produced in all configurations. As with all IPS/Stanwood Corporation tubes, it has been triple checked for soundness of welds and is absolutely gas tight. For heat treating, steel making, high temperature coatings, or any other application, IPS/Stanwood Corporation is the source for high quality radiant tubes.

We offer straight tubes and return bend tubes in various configurations including “U” tubes, “S” tubes, “P” tubes and “W” bends.


Strong And Durable

IPS/Stanwood Corporation Retorts are of corrugated wall construction. They are lighter in weight, but actually stronger and more durable than retorts of ordinary straight-wall construction. The side walls are constructed of heat resistant corrugated rolled metal. The top seal is a one piece cast alloy of special reinforced design. IPS / Stanwood Corporation retorts will hold their shape through thousands of hours of service life. Our corrugated wall construction absorbs expansion and contraction stresses.

IPS/Stanwood Corporation Retorts can be manufactured in many styles, large or small, using superior fabricating, machining and welding techniques to meet the most critical of high temperature processing requirements. The critical nature of these parts requires a retort that is strong and completely gas tight, a requirement that is met with ease.
