Heat Treating Services
Heat treating services commonly involves metals that are heated and cooled in such a way so as to alter their physical and mechanical properties WITHOUT also changing their original shape. Heat treating services are often used to increase the strength of a material, or to help achieve certain product performance objectives, such as restoration of ductility, improve machinability or formability and more.
The ATS Approach
ATS’ heat treating services involve equipment that uses 480 volt three phase (otherwise known as high voltage) power to supply six different circuits of 85 volts. This is used to power the electric resistance heating pads. The type of equipment that we use during this process is capable of heating from ambient to 2,400°F or more depending on the needs. All of our heat treating services are accurately and efficiently performed using not only proper process documentation, but also the highest level of Quality Assurance Procedures and Standards available. We also utilize NIST traceable recorders, thermocouples and equipment for only the most accurate documentation.
The types of heat treatment services offered by ATS are used in a wide range of industries across the country, including but not limited to ones like:
ATS also specializes in PWHT, or “Pre and Post Weld Heat Treatment.” Via a process of uniform heat penetration, specific minimum temperatures are therefore easier to maintain. The ultimate goal of this process is to reduce the cooling rate of both the deposited weld metal and the base metal with the added benefit of less downtown as components are always ready to weld. This, in turn, translates to increased productivity and faster turnarounds besides helping to eliminate any open flames that would commonly create a major safety issue in the workplace.
