Achieve the ultimate control
Oxygen, moisture, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen are all prevalent in the air we breathe—and each reacts to varying degrees with different metals. Add the heat component and these reactions are greatly accelerated and can lead to an undesirable final product. In vacuum heat treating, air, along with most of the reactive elements, are removed by a vacuum pumping system.
Our vacuum department is state-of-the-art and constantly maintained to ensure peak performance. Our furnaces range from 5,000 lbs to 8,000 lbs capacity and quenching is available for both argon and nitrogen.
