Surface® Combustion Awarded Contract for Horizontal Ion Nitriding System for Watervliet Arsenal

Surface® Combustion, Inc. has recently shipped a new Ion Nitriding Thermal Processing Furnace System for Watervliet Arsenal. Watervliet was familiar with Surface Combustion’s multitude of furnace offerings and awarded a contract to Surface so they could again bring their processing capability in-house. Adding control to the supply chain for product was one of the many reasons Watervliet added a Ion Nitriding Thermal Processing Furnace System to their plant.

Surface® Combustion has always placed a high value on customer relationships and believes that an equipment purchase is the beginning of something much more than a finite transaction. In fact, they have been working with the Watervliet Arsenal location for over 40 years.

“It is always great to see customers coming back to Surface because they appreciate our incredible product lines as well as our engineering capabilities and long standing relationships,” said Ben Bernard, VP of Marketing at Surface.

The Surface® Combustion Ion Nitriding System, with full controls, will be fully installed and commissioned in a horizontal configuration. This configuration best suits the facility and Watervliet Arsenal’s processing needs, and will also include process development.

Surface is no stranger to government contracts. (Cage Code: 58588) This is the second ion nitriding furnace supplied to Watervliet, the first was originally over 40 years ago.
