Heat treating is metalworking processes used to alter the physical, and sometimes chemical, properties of a material. The most common application is metallurgical. Heat treatment involves the use of heating, normally to extreme temperatures, to achieve a desired result such as hardening or softening of a material. Heat treatment techniques include annealing, case hardening, precipitation strengthening, tempering, normalizing and quenching.

On site heat treatment services:

    • Pre-Heating
    • Post Weld Heat Treatment (PWHT)
    • Hydrogen Release
    • Induction Heating

Benefits of post weld heat treatment:

    • Relaxes residual stresses
    • Relaxes thermal stresses
    • Tempers the metal
    • Removes diffusible Hydrogen
    • Metallurgical structure is improved
