Heat treatment can be carried out by using gas burners. Either the piece to be heat treated will be insulated so it functions as its own oven, or pieces can be heat treated in a standing furnace. Gas burners can also be used to “dry out” or harden work pieces where refractory materials have been applied.
Gas burners provide the following benefits:
Heat treatment processes can be carried out using oil burners. The piece can be heat treated by insulation it so it functions as its own furnace, or pieces can be heat treated in a standing furnace. It is possible to perform a “dry out “or a hardening process which can be carried out on work pieces where refractory materials has been applied.
Applicable at temperatures off 450 °C and above, this due to forming oil residue.
Applicable to steel and refractories.
