Check out the latest publication of Industrial Heating. This month's edition features a special look at new insulating materials and installation techniques and how they reduce maintenance, as well as save energy.
The E+PLC combines precision measurement and control with secure data recording to increase the profitability and efficiency of heat-treatment operations.
VMK, VMK-S and VMK-Vac laboratory furnaces are designed for annealing, brazing, sintering and tempering applications.
Cerox fired refractory shapes offer resistance to chemical attack from acids, slags and gases to produce a clean, contaminant-free metal for end users in aerospace and automotive steel foundries.
The steel industry provides a major foundation for North American manufacturing. Increased production of high-quality steel is essential to support investment in infrastructure and meet the needs of the commercial construction and automotive industries.
Endothermic gas carburizing and liquid quenching will be with us for probably another 50 years at least. Why? Because, for the money, there just is no other case-hardening process that can elevate the properties of such a wide range of ferrous alloys.
Your melting furnace is running great. The melt rate is good. Maintenance on the flue and the doors is a bit high, but it doesn’t affect you too much. However, energy costs are high. You’ve checked the air-fuel ratio and furnace pressure, but nothing seems to help. You may have a furnace that is over-fired.
As it has been for several years, Industrial Heating’s editorial focus in April is consulting and training. With an eye toward providing you with the most relevant information possible, we decided to “consult” our website analytics to see what is being viewed most often on www.industrialheating.com.
I tell people that I’ve been unemployed since 1968, which is just another way to describe a consultant. Many of the people who live and work around Washington call themselves “representatives” and “lobbyists,” but all 125,000 of them are lawyers except for the four of us who are engineers.
Our discussion of thermocouples continues this month with more practical advice and a deeper understanding into how to install and maintain thermocouples so as to control the heart of any thermal-processing system. Let’s learn more.
To list everything McLaughlin Services does would take some time. Needless to say, the company is much more than the maintenance and repair shop it started out as in 2007.
