Heat treatment is a process involving heating of a metal/alloy at a specific rate, holding it at a temperature for a period of time and cooling it at a specific rate. It is performed to obtain a desired microstructure and achieve certain physical or mechanical properties.
We are proud to have an in house heat treatment facility which includes:
2 Gas Fired Furnaces which are both 800kg max capacity. These are both calibrated to AMS2750E and API6A surveyed for the following ranges:
Furnace 1 – Up to 860 Deg C – used for Hardening, Normalising and Annealing
Furnace 2 – Up to 720 Deg C – Used for Tempering, Stress Relieving / Sub Critical Annealing
Each furnace above has 9 calibrated thermocouples. All controllers and recorders for the furnaces are calibrated and traceable to UKAS standards. This allows us to produce accurate furnace time/temperature charts through ‘review’ software.
Our capabilities also include 2 agitated quench tanks, Oil and Water, to be used in quenching and solution annealing operations.
After heat treatment we can shotblast and perform MPI testing in line with customer requirements.
