Come check out the latest Industrial Heating publication with a special feature on the calculation of heat-treating costs!
Heat-treat costs are difficult to get a handle on. In this article, an accurate cost process is established.
Many variables affect natural gas combustion, including environmental conditions. Corrective measures and enhanced controls can reduce the impacts of these variables and can provide optimum control continuously, maximizing the efficiency of industrial burners.
Heat treatment is an inseparable part of many industries. This is especially true of the automotive industry with its emphasis on using the most current work procedures and devices and the requirement for the most effective processes.
Accurate temperature control of heat-treating furnaces, ovens and baths depends in large part on the proper choice of thermocouples as well as on ancillary items such as extension (lead) wire, protection tubes and connectors. Specifications like the latest revision to AMS 2750 (Pyrometry) have helped by focusing attention on the critical role of these important temperature sensors. Let’s learn more.
Our March issue focuses on heat treating. For those of you trying to figure out how to estimate heat-treating costs, check out this month’s article on this topic and the companion unabridged online version.
The U.S. industrial recovery and employment outlook reflects a mixed picture that has our attention today. Americans must be forever thankful for a resurgence in oil and gas supplies – an increasing availability with reducing prices – which is the primary driver on this new road to success.
Induction heating has long been used in a number of industries for more traditional applications, but it is a fairly new technology to be employed in welding. Recently, it has become more and more common to find it being used in both construction and industrial welding processes.
