Carburizing, Nitriding, and Hardening
Expert solutions to help you succeed
Covai Air Products’ Atmosphere Solutions are available for carburizing, neutral hardening, carbonitriding, nitriding, and nitrocarburizing. Nitrogen, methanol, and/or a small amount of enriching gas are blended at the furnace to provide a furnace atmosphere essentially identical in composition to that of endothermic. By varying the amount of enriching gas, the furnace carbon potential can be adjusted to meet your specific atmosphere requirements. The benefit of Covai Air Products’ Atmosphere Solutions is superior atmosphere control for consistent part quality, operational cost savings, significant increases in operational productivity, and ease of operation.
