Hudapack Orders Batch Heat-Treating System
AFC-Holcroft received an order from Hudapack Metal Treating for a new batch heat-treating system. The order is comprised of two 36-inch x 72-inch x 36-inch UBQ (universal batch quench) furnaces with atmosphere top-cool chambers, two UBT temper furnaces, one UBTN nitrogen temper furnace and companion equipment. The equipment will include AFC-Holcroft’s BatchMaster™ controls and Honeywell instruments, and it will be CQI-9 compliant. The new installation will also include a new EZ-Series 9000 CFH endothermic generator. The new batch line will be installed in a brand-new 25,000-square-foot addition to Hudapack’s Elkhorn, Wis., plant. The project is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2013.
