Why choose a vertical vacuum furnace

When the parts to be subjected to thermal treatment have structures which develop in height, vertical furnaces provide a precise and accurate answer, ensuring homogenous temperature distribution even for complex geometries and very high load densities. The system is arranged for either top-loading or bottom-loading to further meet your needs.

Hall crane

Hall crane

The vertical vacuum furnace allows you to crane long or bulky loads for transferring them quickly and precisely into the desired position.

Thermocouples positioning

Thermocouples positioning

Get easily your temperature measurement even in hard-to-reach areas! Thanks to its configuration, thermocouple sensors can be positioned throughout the charge effortlessly.

High loads

High loads

Vertical vacuum furnaces are mainly suited to heat treat parts having a cylindrical cross section or parts that can be stacked vertically, such as those commonly processed in the aerospace industry.



Thanks to the vertical development of the system, its small footprint saves valuable space in the plant. Furthermore, loads can be temporarily stored beneath the furnace and then lifted up.

Frequently asked questions

Are you interested in our vertical vacuum furnaces?
Please, read the answers to frequently asked questions about our products.

Vertical vacuum furnaces are the ideal solution to heat treat high loads or cylindrical parts.
The vertical configuration saves space and significantly facilitates installation. Moreover, it ensures greater ease for thermocouples positioning.

Yes, we do.
We have already developed pit furnaces for different applications. Actually, we don’t suggest it as the loading operation is more complicated than usual and the furnace must be set in a pit. On request, we are able to meet this specific requirement.

Yes, they are.
TAV develops customized solutions to ensure an easy and quick access to parts and components for maintenance. Each vertical furnace is equipped with platforms to reach every point in the system. In addition, operator’s working areas are delimited to ensure maximum safety.
