Effective immediately, C3 Data’s real-time pyrometry compliance status can directly inform Bluestreak, a heat-treat manufacturing execution system (MES) and quality management system (QMS), whether parts about to be loaded into a specific furnace meet AMS 2750 compliance. This collaboration enables two informational platforms to work in unison, effectively eliminating human-error-prone (manual) processes associated with pyrometry compliance. Since Bluestreak is already used by many heat treaters, operators will have the C3 pyrometry compliance connected to Bluestreak in real-time.
If you’re at all like me, you wonder which articles get the most attention on our website. Every year we publish over 40 feature articles, and at the end of the year we gather statistics to see which ones get the most page views. So, without further ado, here are the five most-viewed articles on www.industrialheating.com based on page views in 2021. This ranking applies only to articles published in 2021.
The Datapaq Furnace Tracker System is designed to be used repeatedly in-process in the most hos-tile manufacturing environments while still providing accurate and reliable through-process temperature surveys.
Flow measurement plays a significant role in industrial furnaces, which are used to melt metals for casting or heat materials for a change of shape (forging) or a change of properties (heat treatment). Unfortunately, there is no common mass flow sensor technology that suits all industrial gas furnace applications.
Industrial Heating is hosting three free webinars over the next three weeks, including two in the next couple of days. “Users of Industrial Hydrogen Look Beyond Delivered for Security of Supply” will be held tomorrow, November 30, at 11:00 a.m. (EST). “How to Help Your Customers Decide to Reshore” will be held Thursday, December 2, at 2:00 p.m. (EST), and “Grinding and Polishing of Sample Materials for Microstructural Analysis and Hardness Testing” will be held Tuesday, December 14, at 2:00 p.m. (EST). Registration for these webinars is free.
Registration for IHEA’s Fundamentals of Industrial Process Heating Online Learning Course is now open. Scheduled to begin January 17, 2022, the six-week class will run through February 27. The flexible online format and interactive forums are just some of the benefits of this class. The curriculum includes the basics of heat transfer, fuels and combustion, energy use, furnace design, refractories, automatic control, and atmospheres as applied to industrial process heating. Weekly coursework, quizzes and a final-exam project are administered to guide students on their progress and evaluate their knowledge of the material.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and U.S. Steel are working in partnership through the High-Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) program to apply high-performance computing (HPC), modeling and simulation to improve industrial operations and reduce waste at hot-strip mills.
