Solar Atmospheres Donates Furnace to Lehigh University

October 1, 2019

Solar Atmospheres, Souderton, PA, in conjunction with the William and Myrtle Jones (primary owners of Solar) Foundation, has donated and installed a laboratory furnace for Lehigh University’s Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science. The furnace, with SolarVac Polaris control system, a hot zone capable of holding 250 lb. and a maximum temperature of 2800 F, was installed in Lehigh University’s Whitaker Lab, along with the necessary Solar-built transformer and water cooling system.

“This is a powerful, advanced piece of equipment that will allow us to conduct important experiments in our metallurgy teaching and research, especially around additive manufacturing,” explains Wojciech Misiolek, professor and chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the university.
