Captive Heat Treater Installs Second Nitriding System

ELVIAL S.A., one of the largest aluminum extrusion companies in Greece, has purchased a second NX-815 E furnace from NITREX to meet the needs created by its plant expansion and increase its manufacturing capacity. “This additional NX-815 E furnace, which was installed and began production in July 2021, will help increase the production of building materials by the company – says Marcin Stokłosa, Project Manager at Nitrex. The first furnace has been operational since 2016”.  An ELVIAL representative cited good equipment, technology and service to explain why ELVIAL chose to do business with NITREX once again, according to Marcin Stokłosa.

The NX-815 E is a retort furnace used for extrusion. It operates with NX Connect software, and uses the NITREG®-C (nitrocarburizing) and NITREG® (gas nitriding) technologies for dies extrusion. The machine is equipped with air conditioning, an INS series exhaust gas neutralizer, and racking of 750 kg made from Inconel 600. The order also included a lifting device. All processes for this furnace are compliant to AMS 2759/10.
