Save money: Find out how you can stabilize the temperature during the heat treatment process

Nowadays, who is not looking for saving money? Speaking of industrial processes, maintenance expenses and avoidable losses are silently draining the factory incomes. In the heat treatment process, a furnace that doesn’t offer good stability during the temperature measurement of its programs can waste a lot of resources.

To maintain production efficiency, it is essential to reach the right temperatures with precision and to respect the heat curve schedule throughout the treatment. When the machinery cannot meet the energy requirements, the costs go beyond even the most permissive budget. In other words, a good furnace also needs to be economical.

Stability in heat treatment equipment: How to save money

Temperature stability depends on furnaces that include high-precision, high-performance sensors and controllers. It is not enough that the machine is efficient and reliable. Its accessories must also have excellent performance.

A good temperature controller needs to be fast and allow a quick response, saving recovery time. Any unwanted change in the process needs to be adjusted in a short time so that the equipment is both energy-efficient and cost-effective.

Achieving and maintaining temperature stability in heat treatment avoids several problems and results in economy, mainly in the following points:

  • Reduces the loss of parts that have defects that make them unusable.
  • Reduces the need for repairs on parts that have defects that do not compromise their use.
  • Reduces maintenance costs of the furnace used for heat treatment.
  • Maintains the production schedule with no need for extra workforce.

Any equipment that is operating out of balance and unable to stabilize temperature within operating programs is a financial threat. The reliability of the product depends on good performance, just as the sustainability of the business depends on good resource management and economy.
