  • Patent number: 6435867
    Abstract: There is provided a cast tire for use with a furnace roller. The cast tire has at least three of annular spaced pockets located around the central opening of the tire on each radial side. When the tires are installed on a furnace roller with arbor means, pockets are inserted into the annular spaced pockets. The pockets are secured only to the arbor means of the roller. Rotation of the arbor means results in rotation of the cast tires by transmission of torque from the pockets to the to the tire without direct attachment of the tire to the arbor means.

  • Patent number: 6180933
    Abstract: A furnace for heating ferrous metal workpiece is made up of a plurality of pairs of furnace sections with each pair of furnace section having a longitudinal flux inductors with controls for rapidly adjusting the heating rate according to a desired workpiece discharged temperature from the second of the furnace sections. The second furnace is controlled to maintain a substantially constant workpiece heating temperature. A second pair of furnace sections is provided with a first furnace section utilizing coil pairs with a dual output power supply having independent phase adjustable output currents to vary the current phase relation between the coils between 0 and 180°. The change to the phase relation is used to maintain efficient heating of the metal strip above the Curie temperature.
