Hardening / Tempering:
 
Austenitisation under protective atmosphere. Stress-relief
quenching in molten salt bath and subsequent tempering in
convention tempering furnaces.

 

Austempering / Bainite:
 
When austempering, the parts remain in the molten salt bath
at constant temperature after quenching until conversion into
bainite. Usually there is no tempering.

Stress-relief Annealing:
 
It is possible both with hood-type furnaces under protective
atmosphere and with convection tempering furnaces, too.
 
 

 

Nitriding / Nitrocarburizing:
 
The protective atmospheres required for the heat treatment
methods are produced by nitrogen, ammonia and carbon dioxide.
An air circulator ensures continuously for a directed flow. The
cooling of the batch is done indirectly by ambient air.
