A Closer Look at Heat Treating

The process of heat treatment involves the use of heat at different, very specific, temperatures in order to alter the physical properties of the material, usually aluminum or steel, although other metals and alloys can also be heat treated. This heating process is conducted in large industrial furnaces that are capable of producing temperatures greater than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

The heat treatment process carried out by many oil and gas heat treating companies is as follows

  • An item is brought into the heat treatment cell and transferred into the first furnace.
  • The item is subjected to a predetermined temperature and soaked that temperature or pre-determined period of time.
  • The item is removed from the furnace and cooled (quenched), often very quickly, to another specified temperature.
  • Subsequent to quenching, the item is conveyed into a second furnace where it is subjected to another round of heating and soaking in order to perfect the item’s physical properties.

The above represents a basic process of heat treating employed by oil and gas heat treating companies. There are additional processes that complement heat treatment to help facilitate desired properties in parts and components. For instance, if you need abrasion resistance and high hardness levels, heat treating can provide it. If you need a combination of high strength and ductility to prevent shattering, heat treating can accomplish it.
