The Heat Treating Process Depends on Nitrogen Gas from On Site Gas Systems

Heat Treating, Nitrogen Gas

Nitrogen gas is a lightweight, odorless gas that is common and unassuming, yet, without it, the heat treating process wouldn’t be nearly as effective. This common gas, when produced at a purity of 95% to 99.999% by our N2 generators, is instrumental to ensure a strong and beautiful end result, whether in a kiln or a furnace. How Nitrogen Gas Helps with Heat Treating During the heat treating process, two things are found in abundance: heat and pressure. Whether metal or another material is undergoing the heat treating process, oxygen is the enemy. Any metal over 600 degrees Fahrenheit will oxidize if it comes into contact with oxygen. This causes the product to become discolored and weakened. Even if it finishes the heat treating process…
