Vacuum Carburizing With Oil Quenching

Last week we had an article entitled “Vacuum Carburizing with Oil Quenching a Growing Trend in the Heat Treatment Industry?” The basis of the article was that at least two suppliers of such systems have changed direction a bit and now have a product offering which fits very neatly into a batch IQ (sealed quench) situation. We have solicited thoughts and comments from these suppliers and later today we will summarize how this change is exciting both captive and commercial heat treaters.

It is a real co-incidence that the day we posted our original article we received an unsolicited market report about the Vacuum Carburizing Furnace Market. While at first glance it appeared interesting the more we looked into it, the more we realized that the information contained in it is in a number of cases is just plain wrong or is missing major points. For instance Tennova is mentioned as being a key supplier for VC furnaces, Tennova exited this business some time ago and was never more than a niche player. The report also focuses only on Vacuum Carburizing with gas quenching and makes no mention at all of oil quenching. We could point out a number of other mistakes but you get the point. So take this as you will and look forward to our thoughts on the newest trend in vacuum carburizing technology.
