Pusher Furnaces utilize the sequential pushing of carriers through the system by a ram from one end. This system allows the use of sealed end vestibules and is commonly employed for powdered metal sintering, production of soft ferrites, nitriding, and even case hardening and carburizing.
 
A special class of small format pusher furnace uses a ceramic muffle, usually a round or D tube with a Molybdenum or platinum wire wound around the outside.
