February 10, 2004: Maumee, Ohio… Surface Combustion, Inc. has received an order for a Super Allcase® Batch Integral Quench furnace line with companion equipment from National Metal Processing, located in Richmond, Kentucky.
National Metal Processing is a family-owned and operated commercial heat treating company. NMP offers traditional heat treating services including continuous austempering, carbonitriding, carburizing, scanning and single-point induction, tempering, and vacuum heat treating. Additionally, the company offers C02 laser heat treating and laser welding services. A complete metallurgical and dimensional inspection lab complements their heat treating processes.
The furnace line will consist of one (1) Allcase® batch integral quench furnace, gas- fired, with atmosphere top cool and oil quench, one (1) Uni-DRAW® temper furnace, one (1) P/M Uni-DRAW® high convection batch tempering furnace, (1) RX® endothermic gas generator with ENDOQUENCH® air cooled heat exchanger, one (1) spray/dunk companion washer, and a wide array of companion equipment which includes a charge car and multiple work handling tables. Controls for the furnace equipment includes Surface’s HTMTM (Heat Treat Management) and TALTM (Trend Alarm Log) software with bar-code operation and tracking capability.
The furnace line will have the ability to process effective work sizes up to 36″ wide by 48″ long by 36″ high. The Allcase furnaces will have a maximum furnace operating temperature of 1950°F.
The Allcase furnace will utilize a System #1TM rear handling system. With this system, a furnace operator loads the furnace vestibule. The rear handler moves the load into the furnace heat chamber. After the “heating” portion of the cycle, the load is automatically transferred from the furnace chamber to the quench vestibule via a rear handling mechanism. The work is then transferred automatically to either the atmosphere top cool chamber or the oil quench depending upon the process being performed. After completion of the quench cycle the operator unloads the quench vestibule with the charge car provided.
As a world leader in the heat treat furnace and associated equipment industry, Surface Combustion has over 85 years of experience in designing and manufacturing furnace and companion equipment for it’s customers’ processing needs.
