2015927I am fairly new to knife making and so far all of my experience is in stock removal. I want to move on to forging and I plan to use gas, but I'm wondering what advantages there are to having a heat treating oven in addition to a gas forge.
About Heat Treating & Heat Treat Furnaces. Heat treating (or heat treatment) broadly 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 (usually a metal).
The steel has a high chromium content (11 to 13 percent) and relatively high amounts of molybdenum (.7 to 1.2 percent), vanadium (1.1 percent), cobalt (1 percent) and other elements. This complex mixture makes proper heat treatment of AISI D2 more complex than the heat treatment of other simple and tool steels.
Heat treating is a series of controlled heating and cooling processes used to alter the physical or chemical properties of various materials. Heat treating plastics is a procedure to bond the particles, to polish it and to avoid cracking during the production process.
FIREBOX-HT Oven Furnace. Another heat treating equipment, the FireBox-HT is a high temperature furnace designed for both tool room heat treating and high temperature precision casting. For use up to 2,150 degrees F, the FireBox-HT is insulated with 4 1/2″ of firebrick backed up with an additional two inches of 1,200 degrees F block insulation.
Other furnaces/ovens at Derrick range in size from our large 12 ft. x 12 ft. x 35 ft. long car-bed furnace, down to our smallest 4 ft. x 4 ft. x 6 ft. automatic, electric oven. Our quenching capabilities include forced air, water, boiling water, glycol solution, and press quench.
What is the difference between a heat treating oven, a kiln and a heat treat furnace ? No difference at all except the shape. Heat treat ovens are offered in shapes and sizes designed to fit typical metal projects. A long skinny heat treating kiln is more efficient for a sword maker for example.
Knights Dragon Fire Heat Treat Furnaces, sold nationwide, provide heat treating in tool production to harden metal for long-wearing quality and resistance to shock. Knights is "one of the oldest and most widely recognized heat treat furnace manufacturers in the world."
Heat Treatment Oven Project After making my 3rd knife and finding it difficult to maintain 1000°C temperatures, sustained and accurately, I decided that an electric heat treating oven is the way to go. I have no intention (at this time) of spending $1000 on an off-the-shelf unit for my "hobby", so I set out to design and build one myself.
As a supplier of industrial ovens and heat treatment furnaces for a wide variety of laboratory, industrial, pharmaceutical and medical applications, EPS is proud to offer expertise and guidance to address heat processing requirements with our own Engineered Production Systems built by our fabricating partners.
Wisconsin Oven provides equipment to the heat treating industry that performs the following processes: solution heat treating, stress relieving, tempering, preheating, aging and more. Wisconsin Oven manufactures heat treat ovens and furnaces, draw and temper furnaces, and conveyor belt ovens and furnaces to meet your heat treating needs.
2014425Sometimes this is done by replacing the air in a heat treating chamber with a non-reactive atmosphere such as nitrogen, argon or other gas mixtures. This is often referred to as controlled atmosphere heat treating. Another alternative is to heat treat in a bath of non-reactive molten salt.
This is the energy required just to heat the product. The heating capacity of the oven will need to be greater, due to heat losses through the oven walls, through exhausted air and through heating of the oven mass itself. In an oven where the exhaust rate during heat up is 50 Standard Cubic Feet Per Minute (SCFM), the heat required to heat
High-Temp Ovens for Heat Treatment Applications. Heat treatment intentionally alters properties by applying a heating and cooling process. Both the heating and cooling phases use extreme temperatures. Pick a Sentro Tech model or custom build a high-temperature oven to perform an array of heat treatment processes.
