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.
Seebeck discovered that when two dissimilar metals are connected (“junctioned”) together, a minute electric potential will be generated. This phenomenon, known as the Seebeck Effect, is the basis of how a thermocouple functions.
The COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing at the time of writing. Terminology we were not familiar with before has entered our vocabulary. Social distancing, shelter-in-place and furlough are now part of our daily lexicon. These are all measures, among others, instituted to protect us.

Just like individuals, each business will have its unique challenges and some commonalities as well. For heat treaters, the need to maintain customer approvals, industry accreditations, equipment calibration and furnace efficiency are vital to their current and future ability to provide heat-treatment services. Yet these are not easy to achieve in optimal conditions, and today’s world is indisputably suboptimal.
Questions about AMS 2750 are common for readers of this journal. We review the impact of this important pyrometry specification to help you deal with the complexities and unknowns in the high-temperature environment of sintering.
Heat-treating processes are unmistakably diverse. Furnaces are built and tuned for carburizing, carbonitriding, ferritic nitrocarburizing (FNC), annealing, tempering, nitriding and vacuum heat treating (among other processes).
With the goal of meeting AMS 2750 specifications, a two-phase project was needed to revamp a system used for heat treatment. The new equipment provided benefits including reduced labor costs, improved data logging and reduced energy consumption.
