Spectrum Thermal Processing

Vacuum Pressure Quenching & Vacuum Gas Quenching

Spectrum’s vacuum department includes seven furnaces with a range of capability second to none in the Northeast. We have an ultimate vacuum capability of 10-5 torr. Our vacuum quench furnaces can quench work from temperatures as high as 2150°F (1175°C). We use nitrogen or argon for quenching at pressures up to 60 psig (5 bar). Our continuous pressure quench furnaces are unique in that it is capable of producing cool rates approaching that of oil yet with minimal distortion associated with gas quenching. Spectrum routinely hardens 4340, 4130 materials in section sizes up to 1/4" nominal.

The Spectrum Thermal Processing Single Chamber Gas Pressure Quench Furnace is used for larger vacuum work requiring rapid gas cooling and or high vacuum at temperatures up to 2150°F (1175°C)

Whether 400 series or carbon steels; Spectrum Thermal Processing can help you harden and temper your bearing components.

In addition to the hardening Spectrum provides deep freezing as well as air, atmosphere and vacuum tempering of your products.
