Heat Treatment Furnaces
Heat treatment generally refers to a group of thermal processes in industrial and metalworking applications used to intentionally alter the physical and sometimes chemical properties of a material ( metals ). These alterations in physical and chemical properties typically take the form of hardening or softening of a material by heating and cooling to extreme temperatures. Heat treatment occurs at temperatures that can exceed 1000°C.
The desired physical and chemical properties of the part are achieved through heat treatment techniques such as annealing, carburizing, precipitation, strengthening, tempering, normalizing, and hardening. CREFIN designs and manufactures heat treatment furnaces for all these treatment techniques
