New gassing system for gas carburizing processes

The HybridCarb system from Ipsen is an innovative, patented gassing system for gas carburizing processes: the process gas is therefore no longer uselessly burnt off, but reconditioned in the HybridCarb box and led back into the heating chamber. All processes in the hardening furnace can then be controlled even more easily to further improve quality.

The system is installed on site in only six to eight hours, thanks to the extreme simplification of the connections. Almost any atmosphere furnace can be retrofitted with the HybridCarb recycling kit. The system operates reliably and, thus, does not require much maintenance. In case of repair or maintenance, you can switch back to the old gassing system between two bath treatments in seconds, just at the press of a button.

With HybridCarb you also avoid the expensive and – according to the German Water Act – the storing of toxic, highly flammable methanol, which is subject to approval. Even the risk of fluctuating methanol prices belongs in the past. With the operation of endogas, a separate endogas generator also becomes unnecessary by using the new gassing system.
