Specialty Steel Treating Purchases Integral-Quench Furnace
Specialty Steel Treating, a commercial heat treater with locations in Michigan and Connecticut, is adding a new AFC-Holcroft UBQ (universal batch quench) integral-quench furnace at its Fraser, Mich., facility. The furnace is equipped with a top-cool chamber, which offers additional cooling capacity for a variety of processes. The 36 x 48 x 36 unit will be serviced by a new, double-ended UBTC (universal batch transfer car) and will meet all of the requirements established in AMS 2750E for a Class-2 Instrument, Type-C furnace system. At Specialty Steel Treating’s request, both nitrogen and endothermic gas will be delivered to the top-cool system.
