Heil furnace nomenclature

Heil Manufacturing Company was founded in 1855 by Jacob Heil, who invented the first successful cast-iron furnace that did not require a brick lining. The furnace is still used for steel making but with modifications to improve efficiency and reduce emissions.

The diagram below shows the various components of a typical Heil furnace. Understanding the nomenclature can help you when to troubleshoot problems.

Heil Furnaces have three different configurations: R-22, R-407C, and ammonia. Each configuration has its own set of components and nomenclature.

In the world of manufacturing, a couple of terms are used to describe different types of furnaces. One is called a “patented heil” furnace. This type of furnace is typically used for high-temperature heating and melting applications.

A heil furnace uses convection air to heat process material in a chamber, then uses radiant heaters to add localized heating below the process material. Heil furnaces are often made of stainless steel or other materials that can withstand high temperatures and corrosive environments.
