Designed for vacuum carburizing and high-pressure quench applications, the Turbo²Treater from Ipsen (Cherry Valley, IL) is versatile enough to heat treat components including long and thin parts, multilayer loads, tools and small dies, gears, drills and saw blades. High quench speeds and temperature uniformity of plus or minus 10 degrees F (5 degrees C) during heating and cooling shorten cycle times and minimize part distortion for manufacturers in the aerospace, automotive, medical, and tooling industries.
In addition to standard processes such as bright hardening, bright annealing, bright tempering, and brazing, the vacuum furnace supports optional processes such as low-pressure carburizing (AvaC), low-pressure carbonitriding (AvaC-N), and solution nitriding (SolNit). Quench pressure up to 12 bar with nitrogen (8 bar with argon) is ideal for hardening low-alloy materials.
Energy-efficiency features include intelligent pumps and variable-frequency drive for the cooling fan blower. Standard cooling gas flow is vertical, but optional alternating flow direction is available to increase quench uniformity and minimize part distortion.
Intuitive VacuProf 4.2 control software includes extensive material database and allows for process simulation.
