Cambridge Heat Treating puts ZeroFlow nitriding process to the test

Cambridge Heat Treating has installed a SecoWarwick vacuum purge retort furnace system equipped with ZeroFlow nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing capabilities in their Cambridge, Ontario, Canada facility. Cambridge selected the gas fired heating option for the multi-purpose system to be used for tempering and aging as well as nitriding.

Peter Robbins, Cambridge Heat Treating commented: “We are very happy with this furnace and all the processes we can run. Our gas nitriding is very exact and we can also clean Temper. The gas fired heating has been excellent.  In addition to our plasma nitriding capabilities, we are now a full service nitriding facility located convenient to Detroit/Windsor and Toronto.”

SecoWarwick Managing Director Jonathan Markley added: “We are pleased to deploy another solution that runs with our advanced  gas nitriding process – ZeroFlow. This technology can not only help with saving time and money but achieve extraordinary results with lower operating costs.”
