This will be one of the largest pit furnaces that SECO/WARWICK has ever built.
The customer chose SECO/VACUUM (SVT) because of the Group’s extensive experience and industry leadership in gas nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing process development, its R&D capabilities and its local North American support.
Pit Nitriding for large or dense loads
SECO/WARWICK Group offers gas nitriding furnaces in a variety of standard styles and models, including horizontal front-loading retort furnaces and vertical pit-style retort furnaces. The proprietary ZeroFlow® control technology uses only ammonia as a process gas thereby reducing gas usage and gas emissions. The ZeroFlow Pit (Model VRNe) is an electrically heated pit nitriding furnace.
SECO/VACUUM’s gas retort nitriding furnaces achieve optimum results by using uniform high convection heating, precision nitriding potential and ammonia control, along with vacuum purging to reduce operating costs to process a variety of metals. Processes possible with retort technology include gas nitriding, ferritic nitrocarburizing (FNC), post oxidation, tempering, age hardening, and stress relieving.
SECO/WARWICK is one of the leading suppliers of both front loading and pit gas nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing furnaces. SECO/WARWICK furnaces are unmatched in quality, support and experience. With well over 50 gas nitriding units in service, SECO/WARWICK has the solution, from 400 kg loads to 7,500 kg loads.
