CHERRY VALLEY, IL – Ipsen has shipped two 6 bar TurboTreaters® to Gleason Cutting Tools Corporation located in Loves Park, Ill. The units are designed for a maximum operating temperature of 2,500 F and are capable of quenching in nitrogen up to 6 bar absolute pressure. Standard features include a 2-inch thick carbon composite/graphite felt hot zone. As the furnaces will be used for hardening and tempering, the units were purchased without a diffusion pump and will use convection assisted heating to 1,600 F. The use of convection significantly reduces cycle times. These TurboTreaters are equipped with the newly standardized industrial VPN router, a modem installed so software support personnel can remotely perform diagnostics.
In addition to hardening and tempering, the energy-efficient TurboTreater is ideal for brazing, solution anneal and stress relieving applications, while operating with a high pressure cooling system for fast quenching with 360º cooling uniformity. Its patented gas quenching system design reduces gas consumption up to 40% without sacrificing its high-speed cycle time and reduces floor space requirements, making it the best solution for your most demanding heat treatment projects.
