OMZ-Special Steels Installs Heat-Treatment Furnace
The accuracy of temperature control is ± 5°C, heating rate is up to 80°C/hour and cooling rate is up to 80°C/hour. The quenching temperature can reach 1150°C (2102°F). None of the existing manufacturing facilities at Izhorskiy Industrial Complex have a vertical furnace that performs thermal operations at this temperature. In addition, the launch of the new furnace will provide a 10% reduction in power consumption. OMZ commissioned original equipment manufacturer Bosio, of Slovenia, to assist with this project.
