Heat Treating Services at Bluewater Thermal Solutions

One of the many advantages we offer our customers is the ability to perform the heat treating services that are an ideal match for what is required for a given project. This can include full-surface heat treatment methods, as well as induction heat treating to harden only the required locations on the surface of a part.

Our engineering team can work with your in-house design and engineering team to develop the best and most cost-effective heat treating services based on the specifics of the part or component. We can also analyze options and provide data to allow OEMs to make informed decisions on the most effective processes.

There are some heat-treating options which are more commonly used than others. This will vary by industry as well as by specific type of system, machine or device which will ultimately be built using the specific part or component.

Annealing

Annealing is a carefully controlled heating and cooling process to change the microstructure of the metal and produce the desired characteristics. Annealing is often used to make metal softer, or to increase the ability to machine a metal. It can also be used to enhance the electrical conductivity of an alloy.

Within the general category of annealing, normalizing and stress relieving are also popular and common heat treating services across many industries and for many different applications.

Induction Hardening

The induction hardening process allows for specific areas of the surface of the part, or the entire part, to undergo surface hardening to a very precise depth. This is ideal for parts requiring very hard exterior surface areas to prevent wear and tear.

We also offer a full range of other options including carburizing, age hardening, FNC and ANC as well as boronizing, nitriding and martempering heat treatments.
