Enhanced cooling is recognized as a method of improving metallurgical properties without subsequent heat treating processes. Abbott’s VariCool Convective Cooling System combines radiant and convection cooling to accelerate the cooling capabilities of a continuous belt industrial furnace and is available on new industrial furnace designs or as a retro-fit on an existing industrial furnace.


Water Jacketed Chamber
Allows the convection cooling to be shut completely off.

Multiple Re-circulating Injection Ports
Uniform cooling throughout the VariCool chamber.

Water Cooled Heat Exchanger
Assists in cooling re-circulated atmosphere and increases cooling efficiency.

Adjustable Piping System
Control of the atmosphere re-circulation and optimizes cooling profile.
