American Heat Treating Upgrades Controls
Super Systems, Inc. recently completed two upgrade projects at American Heat Treating in Dayton, OH. Controls were upgraded on a Beavermatic integral quench furnace that included a Series 9205 with a 12.1” HMI for atmosphere and temperature control and datalogging, a Series 804 for oil quench temperature control (heating and cooling), and other ancillary items. A second project included a controls retrofit of a Lindberg 3000 SCFH endothermic generator with an SSi AutoGen control system.
Van Hatcher, Instrument Technician and project leader at American Heat Treating said, “Our long-range plan was to upgrade the controls on the Beavermatic, but when the old controller failed without notice, Super Systems jumped into action and did the complete upgrade project quickly. Our endothermic generator has been operating with the new SSi AutoGen controls with no issues since commissioning. We look forward to the operating cost savings that come with the automated turndown features.”
