Improved Durability Through Case Hardening

Do you have steel components that are consistently breaking? Our case hardening treatments can improve the durability of your metal components. Don’t let soft metals and dull, bent or broken components cost you time and money.

Industrial Heat Treatment SolutionsWhile there are many ways to harden metals, case hardening is unique. The outer layer of your case-hardened tool will be significantly more durable, but the interior will remain soft. There are a number of reasons this procedure could be more beneficial for industrial use. Parts that have low carbon levels tend to resist other hardening procedures. By diffusing carbon, nitrogen or other elements into the outer layer, the part will be dramatically more durable.

At SST, we typically use three basic strategies when it comes to case hardening your industrial parts:

  • Vacuum carburize
  • Gas carburize
  • Carbonitrade
  • Gas nitride

Gas carburizing involves diffusing carbon to the outer layer of your solid ferrous alloy component. After quenching, it’s tempered to harden the surface layer effectively. This process can also be achieved by diffusing in a vacuum. The steel component is austenitized and diffused in a vacuum, then oil or gas is used to quench it.

Carbonitriding steel can improve both hardness and wear resistance. This process involved heating steel in a gaseous environment. The nitrogen and carbon are both absorbed into the surface of your industrial component.

Each of these methods is used to create a firm, outer layer on your component without compromising the core. Case hardening is an excellent way to improve wear resistance and strength.

Versatile Quenching Heat Treatments

Another excellent way to improve the durability of your industrial components is quenching. Discover why quenching is a popular industrial steel treating technique that you can use to improve the operation of your manufacturing facilities.

We perform a variety of quenching heat treatments depending on the exact material and usage. Here is a list of some popular ways to improve your metal components through quenching:

  • Marquenching
  • Normalizing
  • Case Hardening
  • Roll quenching
  • Plug quenching
  • Press quenching
  • Neutral hardening
  • Bright hardening
  • Precipitation hardening
  • Oil quenching

Quenching heat treatment is particularly effective for heavy machinery components, but can be applicable to your manufacturing equipment.
