Annealing Gas Atmospheres

Gas atmospheres for annealing can range from nitrogen-based blends with hydrogen for carbon steels (to improve microstructure, surface appearance and reduce residual stresses), to 100% hydrogen (for stainless steels or for faster batch processing of carbon steel components). For vacuum annealing of reactive metals, we can provide argon or helium atmospheres. Our atmospheres can help you achieve improved and consistent part quality, reduced post-heat-treatment cleaning or pickling costs and reduced furnace maintenance.

Analytical Panels

These panels allow you to measure hydrogen, moisture, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbon concentrations in furnace atmospheres for real-time monitoring and control of your furnace parameters. This information can help you improve operational consistency, flexibility, quality and safety.

Nitrogen Supply Monitoring Systems

Our nitrogen supply monitoring system can help you improve process safety related to embrittlement of carbon steel components. The system monitors nitrogen supply parameters, such as storage tank level, pressure and nitrogen house-line temperature to provide operators with an alarm if the levels fall below desired settings.

Process Control and Monitoring System

Our advanced monitoring and control system allows you to continuously monitor and regulate the true oxidizing/reducing potential of the atmosphere, as well as track, record and organize process data for your annealing operation. This information can help you achieve consistent and reliable product quality, reduced re-work or defects and improved process safety.
