Are you familiar with hot sand fluidized beds for preheating? If so, can you refer me to some manufacturers? W.D.
I have never heard of anyone using hot sand fluidized beds for preheating. These devices are designed to strip parts and hangers. Because of the high purchase costs of these fluidized beds, I suspect that most people would rather preheat parts by using an oven. You can find the suppliers of these devices on the Suppliers page at www.pfonline.com or in the 2001 Products Finishing Directory and Technology Guide.
