US Air Force Base Receives Delta H Furnace

DELTA H® and Phillips Federal Deliver To Tinker AFB, OK – USAF, Their First AMS2750G Qualified Heat Treating System For Military Aircraft

Oklahoma City – Tinker AFB: DELTA H® recently delivered the first heat treating system certified to AMS2750G for heat treating aviation grade aluminum for military aircraft. The new system is the second installation at the massive depot facility and placed side by side with the previous DELTA H Dual Chamber Aerospace Heat Treat (DCAHT®) system installed in 2015. Third party services for calibration and qualification were performed by Andrew Bassett of Aerospace Testing and Pyrometry and completed within one day on site. The certifications for instrumentation, Temperature Uniformity Surveys and System Accuracy Testing were completed through ATP’s new Aerospace Compliance Software (ASC) to AMS2750G.

The newly installed DCAHT® features a certified TUS volume of 24” wide, 16 inches high, 72 inches long, with an upper chamber convection oven operable to 500°F, and a lower chamber convection furnace operable of 1200°F. In addition to aluminum, the system can be used for PH stainless steel aging, as well as titanium and ferrous alloy processes. Both chambers qualified as Class 1, and were certified as Class 2 for aluminum applications. Honeywell controls and recorders are featured and include remote computer control, data entry, process monitoring and produce irrefutable batch records with quench delay.

Extensive training was involved to not only several operators, but also QC personnel and two “Trainers” qualified to train other operators. Additional training was provided to USAF personnel responsible for maintaining pyrometry records to assure continued compliance to AMS2750G.

“The DELTA H furnace we installed in 2015 is an absolute work horse, it has been operating 24/7 ever since, and it is, without question, the most reliable and productive machine in this entire facility. When it came to increasing our heat treating capacity, there was only one choice.Mechanical Engineer, Tinker AFB

We work on a lot of furnaces and ovens in our business, and when it comes to performance and consistency in calibration, passing a TUS or SAT without fail – nothing performs like a DELTA H furnace. They are absolutely designed for aerospace pyrometry and make our job extremely easy. Andrew Bassett, President – Aerospace Testing and Pyrometry

As an USAF veteran, it is a deep honor to do all we possibly can to assure that our Warfighters have the finest heat treating equipment available for defending our nation. It is a wonderful compliment to “our mission” with the delivery of our second system at Tinker AFB. Aerospace Testing and Pyrometry (ATP) made it look easy to fully qualify to AMS2750G in a day.Richard B. Conway, Founder / Director / CTO – DELTA H® Technologies, LLC
