Linde LLC will present three case studies of a new high-speed gas injection technology designed to improve uniformity of furnace atmosphere at the 29th biennial Heat Treating Society Conference and Exposition.

An expert from Linde will detail field results on a new atmosphere mixing technology that can boost unit productivity and improve convection in heat treatment furnaces without the use of fans.

Akin Malas, Head of Metals & Glass, Applications Technology for Linde LLC, will present the three case studies designed to improve uniformity of furnace atmosphere which improves product quality. Heat treatment furnaces traditionally utilise circulation fans to improve convection. However, these fans are prone to downtime for maintenance. Linde’s technology eliminates the need for fans.

The three gas-process technologies the Tier One company will be showcasing are; CARBOJETTM, gas-injection atmosphere mixing technology for most types of heat treatment furnaces; ADDvanceTM, oxygen (O2) precision atmosphere monitoring of powder bed fusion processes for high-quality additive manufacturing; CRYOFLEX®, cryogenic treatment for case hardening and other sub-zero temperature treatments.

Visitors will also be able to take a virtual reality tour through one of Linde’s Air Separation Units.

Heat Treat 2017 is the premier event for heat treating professionals in North America, featuring an exciting mix of new technology, exhibits, technical programming and networking events. Hosted by the ASM Heat Treating Society, this year’s expo is set for 24th to 26th October at the Greater Columbus Conventio Centre in Columbus, OH.
