Multi-Million Dollar Contract Awarded to Solar Atmospheres of Western PA



A major prime contractor in the nuclear field awarded Solar Atmospheres of Western PA a multi-million dollar purchase order for the vacuum thermal processing of nickel based nuclear steam generator tubing. Known for providing large commercial vacuum furnaces, Solar was selected for its ability to process the 48 foot (576 inch) long parts, the company said.

"Our new customer faced a critical and out-of-the-ordinary challenge of vacuum stress reliving these massive parts. Our furnace capability was a perfect match for this special project. We are fortunate to be able to leverage the expertise of our sister company, Solar Manufacturing, to make our vacuum furnaces more robust and flexible," said Michael Johnson, Sales Manager for Solar Atmospheres of Western Pennsylvania.
