New Gas Nitriding Furnace
In keeping with our goal of providing top quality service, Thermex Metal Treating has installed a new state-of-the-art gas nitriding system, the “ZeroFlow” system. Please contact Rob Ducharme to arrange processing.
Thermex is now able to process Gas Nitriding work!
This new system features precise control of the gas nitriding process by using continuous in-process atmosphere analysis to provide ongoing feedback and information. This allows for close control of properties such as case depth and compound (white) layer formation, including control of the thickness and phase of the white layer. A key feature of this new system is a significant reduction in ammonia gas consumption, which leads to reduced emissions.
The work zone size is 1,000 mm (39”) OD x 1,900 mm (75”) deep. A maximum gross weight of 2,700kg (6,000 lb) can be processed in a load.
Gas Nitriding Process Attributes:
- Improved anti-galling properties
- Improved wear resistance
- High surface hardness
- Better fatigue life
- Process up to:
- 75” long
- 39” diameter
- 6,000 pounds
- 75” long
Gas Nitriding is especially suitable for pre-heat treated alloy steels and tool steels. The relatively low process temperature makes the process ideal for parts where low distortion and deformation are important.
