You can maximize the return on your furnace investment with a piece of equipment that can perform multiple heat treating processes including neutral hardening, case hardening, carbonitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing (FNC), to name a few.


Temperature Uniformity

With an Ipsen furnace, you’ll gain peace of mind with repeatable results. Our furnaces feature a standard temperature uniformity of ±7 °C with processing at degrees of up to 1,050 °C (1,922 °F). We engineer our burners to provide ideal heating, optimize gas consumption and achieve maximum energy efficiency.


Cycle Times & Large Capacity Options

An optional fast cooling feature can be added to your furnace that can reduce cycle times by up to 30%. A continuous furnace can deliver large production rates that reduce your processing costs per piece.


User-Friendly Interfaces

Our HMIs make it easy for operators to control each process, and you can further enhance our precision controls with software options such as Carb-o-Prof® and Conti-Control®.

Batch Furnaces

Enhance your precision and capacity in an efficient footprint with our standard or custom-built batch furnaces. 

Continuous Furnaces

We’ll help you determine the right continuous furnace for your needs. We build pusher, rotary hearth and mesh belt style continuous furnaces along with endothermic generators to accommodate all types of heat treating applications.

Multi-Purpose Chamber Furnace Processes
  • Hardening with oil or salt quench
  • Carburizing and case hardening
  • Carbonitriding
  • Carbon-free annealing
  • Nitriding
  • Ferritic nitrocarburizing (FNC)
Tempering Furnace Processes
  • Tempering 
  • Annealing
  • Nitriding
  • Ferritic nitrocarburizing (FNC)
  • Preoxidation and postoxidation
  • Preheating
  • Stress relieving


We can build your atmosphere furnace with one of three gassing system options:

  • Endothermic gas via generator with Ipsen Endosafe®
  • Nitrogen/Methanol
  • Direct gassing with hydrocons and air Ipsen SuperCarb®

The standard sizes and capacities of our standard size furnaces are as follows:


WxLxH: 610 x 910 x 760 mm (24x36x24 in) 

500 kg (1,100 lb)


WxLxH: 760 x 1,220 x 760 mm (30x48x30 in) 

1000 kg (2,200 lb)

Extra Large

WxLxH: 910 x 1,220 x 910 mm (36x48x36 in)

1,500 kg (3,300 lb)


WxLxH: 1,220 x 1,520 x 1,300 mm (48x60x51 in) 

2,000 kg (4,400 lb)

Special heights and increased load weights are available on request.

You can specify the quench media of your choice when configuring your Ipsen atmosphere furnace. Our models offer both integral and external quenching options and can accommodate caustic media, oil, or salt quenching. No matter which media you choose, you’ll rest assured that each process will receive a uniform quench for minimum distortion and high part quality. 

We also offer add-on technology such as Ipsen TurboQuenchTM and Ipsen SuperQuench® to make your furnace as easy to operate as possible.
