What safety features are included in the used industrial furnace?
Verify what safety features are included on the industrial furnace you’re interested in purchasing. Designed to protect both the operators and equipment, industrial furnace safety features can include safety interlocks, temperature controls, emergency shut-down mechanisms, gas detection systems, flame monitoring, or proper ventilation systems.
What are the energy requirements and efficiency of the used furnace?
The energy efficiency of an industrial furnace can not only help minimize the impact on the environment, but also your operational costs as well. Confirm the furnace’s energy source and power requirements as well as any energy efficient features such as insulation, heat recovery systems, efficient combustion or heating elements, or control systems that can optimize energy consumption.
Does the used furnace meet industry standards and regulations?
Before purchasing, verify the used industrial furnace you’re interested in is compliant with the industry standards, safety regulations and requirements applicable to your location.
What is the expected lifespan of the furnace and its maintenance requirements?
Verify whether documentation is available regarding the industrial furnace’s maintenance history.
