Carburizing Gears in Vacuum

Solar Atmospheres provides low pressure vacuum carburizing (LPVC) that significantly increases the surface hardness/strength of steel parts for improved friction and wear. Performing LPVC in a vacuum furnace eliminates oxygen and prevents IGO (intergranular oxidation) that is inherent in atmospheric carburizing, resulting in clean parts with less distortion reducing post process finishing operations, and costs.
