Furnace increases stainless steel’s durability and corrosion resistance.
Meadville, Pennsylvania–SECO/WARWICK Corp. has commissioned an advanced new furnace design that provides improved durability for stainless steel heat treating. This vacuum furnace is equipped with a 15-bar gas quenching system and a full HMI data retrieval control package is for a manufacturer of stainless steel products in the northeast United States. The Super Expanite process improves the hardness and corrosion resistance for stainless steel. It is not a coating, but rather a new treatment process.
