For real-time carbon diffusion modeling and control via computer, Carb-o-Prof provides a Windows-based PC interface through which the heat treater can generate recipes online, drawing from a comprehensive materials library. The system takes the guesswork out of carburizing by using the Diffusion Model to precisely determine process duration and optimal switchover from boost to diffuse. As cycle time is modified in response to furnace atmosphere, Carb-o-Prof reduces overall process time and creates more consistent carbon and hardness profiles. SuperCarb, endothermic/nitrogen methanol gas system reduces natural gas consumption while eliminating the costs associated with an endothermic generator.
