White Papers for Industrial Heat Treating

  • Cost Effective, Highly Reliable & Efficient Automation Solutions for Existing or New Heating Systems By

    “How can I increase my production, be cost-effective, keep my existing employees, and still be competitive?”
  • Heat Reclaim Economics By

    How utilizing Heat Reclaim technology can save you money and reduce your Carbon Footprint.
  • Gassing Up To Get The Right Atmosphere By

    This paper focuses on the important parameters of the furnace and its atmosphere that affect the integrity of the sintering process, and gives guidance on how to approach and solve the problems they may cause.

    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 furnace By

    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 & Performance By

    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 Elements By

    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...
  • Service Life Extension of Stainless Steel Wire Mesh Belts for Sintering By

    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/Pipe By

    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...
