White Papers for Industrial Heat Treating

  • TIME STUDY: CASE HARDNESS TESTING OF AUTOMOTIVE CRANK PINS AND JOURNALS:By

    A study shows an operator time savings of 86% for making and measuring indents in three locations of crank pins and journals when using Buehler's hardness automation compared to manual testing. There was less part manipulation, fewer errors in data transcription and lower variability between...
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis for Off-gas mixing & ventilation inside carbonization furnaceBy

    Learn more about Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis for Off-gas mixing and ventilation inside carbonization furnace during PAN-based carbon fiber manufacturing, the latest White Paper from Harper International.
  • How to Assess Pumping Needs & PerformanceBy

    Estimate Flow in Your System Check your pump discharge pressure and find your operating point on the manufacturer's pump curve. A given impeller diameter will operate along a curve developing more pressure at lower flow rates and less pressure at higher flow rates. The more flow the pump...
  • An Alternative Solution for SCR-Controlled Transformer-Coupled Silicon Carbide Heating ElementsBy

    SCR power controllers operating on the transformer primary often control electric heating applications employing transformer-coupled Silicon Carbide (SiC) heating elements. Traditionally, designers must choose between two modes of operation: phase angle or zero voltage firing. But neither...
  • Fire Suppression Systems 101By

    In an environment where Prevention and Suppression of fire hasn’t changed much in the last two decades, there is a new technology known as Aerosol Extinguishing or Aero-K®. The Aero-K® aerosol Extinguishing, (100 percent green), has emerged in the last few years in North American markets. It is...
  • Service Life Extension of Stainless Steel Wire Mesh Belts for SinteringBy

    The service life of stainless steel wire mesh belts in sintering furnaces is limited, because material deterioration results in wire fracture. A newly developed humidification system establishes a furnace atmosphere that maintains a protective oxide scale on the belt surface throughout the...
  • Raw Vs. Part Heat Treatments: What is the difference?By

    The fuzzy definitions of “raw material” and “parts” in specifications create variable and debatable heat treating quality standards.
  • Brazing an aluminum manifold (air conditioning)By

    Precise, repeatable heating: The client wanted more precise and repeatable heating than a torch could deliver, which induction was able to achieve...
  • In-Line Induction Through Hardening and Tempering of Tube/PipeBy

    The use of induction heating equipment for through-hardening applications provides a number of advantages over the traditional furnace hardening process. These advantages include reduced scale formation, little or no decarburization, better part quality, reduction in the need for protective...
