Temperature Monitoring in Primary Metals Processing

High Temp Heat Treating

Heat treating is a process used to change the physical properties of a metal. Heat treatment processes include annealing, hardening, normalizing, quenching, tempering and strengthening.

Application Need 

Monitor and/or control the entire heat treatment cycle is used to deliver final products with optimal metalurgical properties and to determine when a treated item is at a safe temperature for handling. The ability to measure the surface during quenching is critical in this process.
