Praxair has signed joint marketing agreements with Super Systems Inc. and Atmosphere Engineering Company in order to combine the core competencies of each company into a superior comprehensive solution for heat-treat customers. Under these agreements, heat-treat customers will have access to a simplified market channel that integrates Praxair’s gases, application technologies and supply systems with process controllers and data-acquisition software from Super Systems and furnace control panel systems from Atmosphere Engineering.

The combined capabilities of Praxair, Super Systems and Atmosphere Engineering cover a broad spectrum of batch and continuous heat-treating processes such as carburizing, carbonitriding, neutral hardening, annealing, gas quenching and heat treatment under vacuum. According to Praxair, this combined expertise in gases, equipment and linking technology will better enable commercial heat treaters to meet high-quality product standards in their furnace operations.
