This is the second time we have mentioned captive heat treater Milacron LLC., in Ohio in our news section. The first was back in 2012 when the company replaced their Nitrogen/Methanol system with a new Endothermic generator.
“Super Systems, Inc. recently completed major upgrades to the heat treating assets at Milacron LLC in Mt. Orab, OH. The end goal of a modern controls and SCADA infrastructure led the Milacron team to SSi knowing that they had the resources and skills to tackle a job as large as this one. Included in the scope of work were new control cabinets, atmosphere flow panels, SCADA software and a new ammonia dissociator. Equipment addressed as part of the upgrade were (2) pit nitriders, (2) pit tempers, (1) pit carburizer, (1) integral quench furnace, (1) batch temper, (1) oil quench and the new ammonia dissociator with controls. All furnaces are capable of running recipes to automate processes creating an easy to use interface for operators and centrally controlled and operated using the SuperDATA SCADA package providing proof of process and quick access to real-time and historical process and load data. “We were very happy to be the chosen provider of the heat treat automation project with Milacron” explains Bob Fincken, National Sales Manager with Super Systems. “Our products and services were a perfect fit for the heat treat department needs addressing gas flow control with our eFlo product line, recipe controls with our 9205 and 9215 products, data acquisition with SuperDATA and all the installation and project management carried out by our Field Engineering Team” he continues.
