Super Systems Inc. of Cincinnati, Ohio, is providing Metals Technology Corp. with a control system for gas nitriding. Metals Technology, based in Carol Stream, Ill., is upgrading the controls on a gas-nitriding pit furnace to provide automated process control for precise metallurgical results and to provide a traceable, repeatable nitriding process. Super Systems’ Model 5000 nitriding system will provide the furnace with the ability to run recipes for one- or two-stage gas-nitriding cycles.

The system will also control the necessary parameters to achieve precise metallurgical results. The programmable controller includes a touch-screen interface with a built-in data logger where historical data is logged to a flash memory device. Metals Technology is a member of the Metal Treating Institute (MTI).
