How Heat Treatment Plays a Role in Your Day

 

At Baker Furnace, we take great pride in the many applications that our products are used for. Since 1980, we have been on the leading edge of manufacturing the highest quality industrial ovens, heat treating furnaces, and pollution control equipment. Over the years, our ovens and furnaces have been used in the production of a multitude of products.

Many of the products that you encounter on a daily basis required some sort of heat treating or thermal processing during their production cycle. These processes are often done in an industrial furnace or oven. The type of industrial oven or furnace supplied depends on the specific process requirements for the material that the product is made of.

Metal parts may need to be aged, annealed, tempered or solution treated to achieve their optimal molecular structure. Composite parts, adhesives, varnish, and other coatings usually need to be cured during the production cycle. In addition to products, heat treatment can be used for pollution control purposes. Fume incinerators, thermal oxidizers, and soil remediation equipment all use heat to remove pollutants from the environment.

Products requiring heat treatment are supplied to almost every industry. From transportation industries, such as Aerospace and Automotive, to energy industries like Oil, Gas and Renewable Energy, it is amazing the effect heat treating has on each of our lives. In the months to come, we will be featuring a variety of applications and products that have been processed in an industrial oven or furnace. Stay tuned to find out just how much heat treating plays a role in your day.
