AFC-Holcroft will deliver a UBQ (universal batch quench)
furnace to Modern Heat Treat, a commercial heat-treating operation in Richland
Hills, Texas. The furnace will boost Modern Heat Treat’s capacity by an
additional 6,000 pounds and will be a duplicate of existing AFC-Holcroft
furnaces currently running production. Modern Heat Treat also purchased an
AFC-Holcroft 9,000-cfh E-Z Series endothermic generator to service the UBQ lines. The company chose
the UBQ furnace, which will be shipped in the third quarter of 2012, to obtain maximum
flexibility in controlling production.
