In a walking beam powder reduction furnace Fe-PM-powder is annealed in a reducing furnace atmosphere, whereby the furnace temperature is higher than 1100 °C. The Fe-PM-powder is charged on trays. The thermal process facility needed for this application is similar to a walking beam sintering furnace. See link:Walking Beam Sintering Furnace WBS
Temperatures: 1280 °C, 1350 °C, 1450 °C, 1600 °C, 1800 °C
Fe-PM-powder is annealed in a reducing furnace atmosphere (high temperature powder annealing) at temperatures higher than 1100 °C.
