Carbon Restoration

Bluewater’s carbon restoration heat treatments are applied to steel parts in order to correct the surface decarburization that occurs from high temperature metalworking processes performed in air, such as investment casting and hot forging. This heat treatment is performed in carbon-controlled atmosphere batch furnaces. Carbon restoration cycles use carbon potential controlled furnace atmospheres to re-establish the correct carbon content on the surface of the steel part. Carbon restoration is normally applied to alloy steel forgings or castings intended for applications with critical mechanical performance requirements that must retain a uniform structure over the entire surface of a part.
