Thermal Chemical Industry “Annealing”
Annealing are heat treating processes where a material’s mechanical
properties are changed, lowering strength hardness.
Annealing is used to induce ductility, soften a material, relieve internal stresses,
and refine the structure by making it homogeneous.
We will reduce or eliminate cold working properties. It is performed by heating a metal
or metal alloy above its re-crystallization temperature. Soaking for a prescribed period
of time, followed by cooling. The cooling rate is determined by material that is being annealed.
Hydrogen gas atmosphere conducts annealing for various materials in a furnace for many different industries.
During the annealing, hydrogen gas atmosphere furnace is used to prevent oxides from
forming on the surface of the material where would be detrimental in its intended use.
The process always starts from approximately room temperature, and heating rates are
easily controlled to allow stress to be relieved slowly.
Gas cooling imparts much stress into a material than traditional liquid quenching, meaning less distortion occurs during the cooling portion of the annealing.
We advantages of annealing are minimize distortion.
Thermal Chemical Industry has been in business for over 40 years and is considered the
expert in the hydrogen gas atmosphere heat treating industry because of the high regard for quality and customers.
