Linde Adds a Twist to Furnace Convection at Heat Treat 2017

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Sept. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- At the 29(th) biennial Heat Treating Society Conference and Exposition, an expert from Linde LLC 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.

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 October 24-26 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH.

The presentation is scheduled as follows:
"Heat Treatment with a Turbulent Twist" - Thursday, October 26, 11:30 a.m. - A213-215
Akin Malas, head of metals & glass, applications technology for Linde LLC, will present three case studies of a new high-speed gas injection technology designed to improve uniformity of furnace atmosphere which improves product quality. Heat treatment furnaces traditionally utilize circulation fans to improve convection. However, these fans are prone to downtime for maintenance. Linde's technology eliminates the need for fans.

At booth #2236, Linde will showcase three gas-process technologies for responding to treatment challenges:

    --  CARBOJET(TM) gas-injection atmosphere mixing technology for most types
        of heat treatment furnaces.
    --  ADDvance(TM) O(2) 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 to the booth can also take a Virtual Reality Tour through one of Linde's Air Separation Units.

Linde LLC offers a portfolio of solutions for the ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy industries, ranging from gases and equipment to services and process consulting for additive manufacturing, powder metallurgy, combustion, heat treatment and cooling.
