INDIANAPOLIS, April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Carrier's latest innovations to its Infinity® 98 gas furnace line top the industry, providing consumers with the most efficient furnace and the quietest furnace in the industry. Carrier, the world's leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

"The Infinity 98 fully modulating gas furnace, in the 60,000 Btuh, 5-ton size, is the most efficient gas furnace a consumer can buy with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) of 98.5 percent*," said John Gibbons, director of product and platform strategy, Carrier. "This means that 98.5 cents of every dollar spent on gas goes directly to heating the home.

Global Industrial Furnaces and Ovens Market to Reach US$12.5 Billion by 2017

Global Industry Analysts

San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 12, 2012 – Industrial furnaces are primarily used by industries to heat-treat metals in order to generate steam. They are also used in the manufacture of bricks, cement, glass, iron and steel, and other materials. Electric, batch and fuel-fired furnaces are used to perform several functions, such as annealing, brazing, carburizing, hardening, sintering, and tempering of ferrous and non-ferrous castings.

Advent of new and sophisticated technologies is prompting manufacturers to exploit such technologies rather than depend on traditional methods. Further environmental concern over pollution is compelling manufacturers to replace older furnaces such as the open-hearth furnaces. The industry is also witnessing manufacturers increasingly incorporating the use of advanced technology for accruing profits at lesser and optimum cost.
