Metals Manufacturing & Heat Treating
Metals heat treating presents challenging environments for not only the parts that are being treated, but also for the furnaces, belts, curtains and fixtures used in the process. Heat treatment is often performed in controlled atmospheres to prevent surface scaling, carburization or decarburization. With Minimox Self-Protective Alloy Treatment, many chromia- and alumina-forming alloys can be heat treated in air rather than in vacuum. The lifetime of furnace components, like thermocouple covers and belts, can be extended.
