The unit is designed so that it can be added to existing process lines of carburizing furnaces without any need to significantly modify the existing infrastructure.
This also applies to situations where it is necessary to replace an old, worn-out Integral Quench (IQ) furnace with a new unit. The applied solutions allow trouble-free installation of the furnace regardless of the brand of the original equipment that is being replaced. This means full integration with the existing elements used for transporting the feed (the loader, the delivery tables, the process equipment) when it comes to mechanic and automatic technologies.
Thanks to it being adapted to work with conventional quenching oils, the treated workpieces are washed by traditional washing devices available in the line. The washing technology, the type of agents used, and the good practices of the operators do not require any changes – the user can keep benefiting fully from the experience they have previously gained.
In order to carry out the carburizing processes, Super IQ does not require an endothermic atmosphere to be supplied. As a result, the generator is eliminated and savings can me made since it no longer needs to be purchased, maintained during operation, and no excess process gas losses are incurred, something that is typical for this device.
However, Super IQ’s main advantage over traditional IQ furnaces is its potential to reduce the time needed for treatment. This is thanks to it being able to carry out carburizing processes at higher temperatures – even up to 1,050°C in practice. Due to this, it is possible to significantly increase efficiency and reduce production costs.
