One room of batch IQ and tempering furnaces

We have atmosphere-controlled batch IQ furnaces that are capable of neutral hardening, carburizing, carbonitriding, normalizing and annealing. Both an internal oil quench and a protective atmosphere quench are available. The furnaces feature automatic profile control of temperature and atmosphere properties for consistent results. The atmosphere supplied to the furnaces is produced in generators featuring automatic control of temperature and dewpoint to ensure constant quality.

Processed parts

We have batch tempering furnaces that provide the capability to temper hardened parts, stress relieve various materials, artificially age some grades of aluminum, improve formability in other grades of aluminum and precipitation harden some grades of stainless steel. They are also used to preheat loads for the batch IQ furnaces to increase throughput, improve consistency and reduce thermal shock in the furnaces.

Despatch oven

We also have a large Despatch oven. This oven is primarily used for processing large batches of aluminum aging or other similar processes. We added this oven in response to customer needs and is just one example of how we strive to better serve our customers.

Large oven

We recently put into service our largest oven. It can be used for annealing, normalizing, stress relieving and other similar processes. The internal dimensions are approximately a 7 foot cube, so we can handle some very large parts!
