What We Offer

Normalizing

The main aim of normalizing is to remove the internal stresses developed after the cold working process. In this, steel is heated 30 – 50°C above its upper critical temperature and cooled in air. It improves mechanical and electrical properties, machinability and tensile strength. Normalizing is the process of heat treatment carried out to restore the structure of the steel to its normal condition.

The steel is heated to a temperature of about 30° to 50°C above its upper critical temperature. It is held at this temperature for a short duration. The steel is then allowed to cool in still air to room temperature, which is known as air quenching.

  • To promote uniformity of structure.

  • To secure grain refinement.

  • To bring about desirable changes in the properties of steel.

Maximum Sizes & Capacity

Our maximum furnace dimensions are broken down into two types:- 

 

Type A (maximum width furnace):

  • Widest - 880 mm 

  • Highest - 460 mm

  • Length - 1,000 mm

 

Type B (maximum height furnace):

  • Widest - 860mm 

  • Highest - 650 mm

  • Length - 1,000 mm

 

Distortion can be minimized up to 650 mm as these items can be stood upright in a Type B furnace. Items of up to 1,000 mm can be laid down flat and packed to minimize distortion, but no guarantee can be given on these items.

 

Maximum weight is consistent for a Type A and Type B furnace: 250 KG - 800 KG

Allow 48 hours, however extraordinarily large jobs may take longer.

 

Urgent work is subject to load size and discussion with our Customer Liasion Department.
