Minimizing Air Leakage to the Lehr

Cold air may leak into the annealing lehr, disturbing the heat distribution in the lehr. This will have an adverse impact both on energy use and on product quality – due to uneven cooling. The leakage of cold air into the lehr should be reduced to a minimum by installing a damper or insulating curtains, as well as reducing the losses around the belt or rollers used to transport materials to and through the lehr (Worrell et al., 2008. p.72).
