It is important for heat treaters to understand
the mechanisms associated with quench cracking and to take all prudent steps
necessary to avoid in-service product failures (Fig. 1). To accomplish this
task, we must work with design and manufacturing engineers on materials
selection, manufacturing methods (including heat treatment) and safety
The 2017 April issue of Industrial Heating features our cover story, a comprehensive list of combustion resources, as well as part 2 of our rimfire firing-pin indent copper crusher series, and much more.
