Solar Atmospheres Southeast successfully completed its first round of surveillance audits for maintaining its AS9100 and Nadcap accreditations. Solar also expanded its scope of Nadcap approval to include low-pressure carburizing (LPC) to meet growing aerospace carburizing needs in the southeast U.S.

Steve Prout, president of Solar Atmospheres Southeast said, “We are proud to be taking this next step in our start-up plan to be able to offer low-pressure carburizing services alongside the rest of our Nadcap-approved scope of thermal-processing capabilities.”

Solar Atmospheres Southeast offers thermal processing in furnaces ranging from those suited for small lots and development cycles to a 6.5-foot-diameter x 24-foot-long vacuum chamber capable of processing up to 50,000 pounds at 2400°F.
