Preheat Metal for Forging

Often the kiln is preheated and the load is inserted into an already hot kiln.

Challenges

Gas furnaces are normally used for this process. Electric can be cleaner which can be important for specialty metals like titanium.

Market

Small forging shops.

Kilns

Typically front loading kilns are used for this application although Bell-Lift kilns may be used.
