Vacuum Heat Treat
When control of exposure to oxygen is critical
Air contains elements that can cause undesirable results, such as discoloration, scale, or contamination, during the heat treating process. By heating treating the metal in a vacuum, these reactive elements are removed from heat treating chamber and heated to the appropriate temperature to achieve desired properties. As in the case with traditional heat treating, the metal is quickly cooled to below 400 degrees but in the case of vacuum heat treating, an inert gas such as Argon in used.
