Carburizing has rapidly become one of the most critical heat-treatment processes for applications such as the auto industry. The temperature and process time significantly influence surface characteristics, and the success of carburization is dependent on accurate, repeatable control of the product temperature and time at temperature through the complete heat-treatment process. This course looks at the latest approaches and equipment for process temperature monitoring and helps provide a general overview of what a successful furnace heat-treat process looks like.

Applying Through-Process Optical Profiling for a Product’s-Eye View
In the global industrial heat-treating market, tens of thousands of products are sent through conveyorized ovens or furnaces each and every day. This article discusses the thermal processes of these products that lead to the success of your operation and the satisfaction of customers.

Applying Through-Process Temperature Monitoring to Fully Understand Your Complete Gas Carburizing Process
One of the key process performance factors associated with gas carburization is the control and monitoring of the product quench step. This article looks at innovations in thru-process temperature-profiling technology that offer specific system designs to meet the respective application challenges.

Thermocouple Accuracy and Adherence to Critical Standards
Since their discovery 200 years ago, thermocouples continue to prove themselves as reliable, repeatable and accurate temperature measurement devices when properly monitored and controlled. This article looks at how the selection and application of thermocouples, in conjunction with adherence to industry standards, can be achieved when offsets are applied and operational use is properly monitored and documented.
