Heat Treatment Australia selected SecoWarwick Europe as their supplier for a FineCarb LPC vacuum furnace with 25 bar high pressure gas quench (HPGQ), and two vacuum aluminium braze furnaces. To complete the heat treat cell, SecoWarwick will supply two nitrogen/air tempering furnaces. The 25 Bar HPQ and one vacuum brazing system will be shipped to their Brisbane, Australia facility and the second vacuum brazing system will be located in their new Los Angeles, California facility

According the Heat Treatment Australia President, Norm Tucker, “I purchased the first furnace from SecoWarwick, a 15 bar, in 2007 and was impressed with the quality of the equipment and the support we received from the company. When we decided to expand our operations both in Australia and open our new facility in Los Angeles, California, SecoWarwick had the right combination of quality, service and new technology.”  

According to SecoWarwick Group Vice President, Maciej Korecki, “We are pleased to continue our ongoing partnership with Heat Treatment Australia and support their expansion to serve the aerospace industry with the latest technology in vacuum brazing and high pressure quench capabilities.”  

The two 2.0VP-4045/48HVS type furnaces will be designed for the vacuum aluminium brazing process. The furnaces are equipped with a stainless heating chamber and six temperature control zones in order to guarantee temperature uniformity within +/-3 °C as required by AMS2750E class 1. Both furnaces will be equipped with a diffusion pump, and a working zone that can accommodate loads with dimensions up to 900 mm wide x 700 mm high x 1,200 mm long.   

For over 20 years, SecoWarwick has pioneered high pressure quench technology in the 20 bar and above category. The 25.0VPT-4035/36NIQ – a 25 bar VPT-series furnace will be equipped with convection heating, low pressure carburizing, ability of high pressure gas quenching with Argon and Nitrogen with pressures up to 25 bar. The furnace will meet AMS2750E Class 2 requirements with instrumentation type A. It will be used to heat treat aerospace parts at Brisbane facility. Working zone dimensions are 600 mm high x 600 mm wide x 900 mm long and it can accommodate up to 600 kg loads.
