Tips on How to Avoid Vacuum Heat Furnace Downtime

The successful utilization of a vacuum heat furnace hangs on several important factors, most importantly of which would be the integrity of this vacant space. Contingent on the purity of the vacuum, the efficacy of the equipment seal, and the condition of the integrated quenching tank, furnace downtime is a manageable productivity obstacle. With that […]

What is De-Embrittlement in Heat Treatment?

Metal embrittlement occurs during numerous heat treatment processes. Furthermore, certain electrochemical techniques are known to promote this undesirable effect. The result is a finished metal product that’s drastically weakened. Fracture-prone and flawed, the embedded microcrystalline defects cast a blemish-ridden shadow on what should be a universally toughened alloy part. If there’s an increased likelihood of […]
