HKFurnace has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing industrial furnaces and other heating equipment for 50 years.
Gas Nitrocarburzing process is done mainly to provide an anti-wear resistance on surface layer and to improve fatigue resistance.
Nitrocarburizing is a shallow case variation of the nitriding process.
Nitrocarburizing is a variation of the nitriding process. It is a thermochemical diffusion process where nitrogen, carbon, and to a very small degree, oxygen atoms diffuse into the surface of the steel part, forming a compound layer at the surface, and a diffusion layer.
Advantages of the process include the ability to harden materials which are not prehardened, the relatively low temperature of the process which minimizes distortion, and relative low cost in comparison to carburizing or other case hardening processes.
Equipment can achieve optimum results with gas nitriding using uniform, high convection heating, precision nitriding potential and ammonia control.
Experienced process specialists can assist in furnace type selection and in product material handling/loading.
