Activated Carburizing System
Available from Air Products and Chemicals, Inc.
This system offers an alternative to conventional endothermic atmospheres and vacuum carburizing. Our novel, non-thermal electric discharge (cold plasma) method activates the non-flammable, low percentage hydrocarbon in nitrogen during furnace injection. This method can eliminate internal oxidation defects that often occur in endo-carburized steel parts, as well as improve microhardness profile and increase effective case depth.
