Can-Eng delivers furnace system for austenitizing and molten salt quenching

Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd has recently been awarded a contract to design and build a 1,500 lb/h mesh belt furnace system for the austenitizing and molten salt quenching of unique components used in the manufacture of the client’s world class drivetrain systems. This contract was awarded by a repeat client who has favoured Can-Eng for several, multi-facility heat treatment lines.

Incorporating several technological advancements for continuous atmosphere processing of products requiring carbon diffusion and quenching via a molten salt system, known as austempering, the new system includes: automated bin-dumping loading, mesh belt atmosphere hardening furnace, salt quench, post quench wash and rinse system, mesh belt temper oven, and endothermic gas generator.

This new project is a result of Can-Eng’s commitment to their customer’s success, years of teamwork and mutual cooperation, yielding a custom engineering project integrating the customer’s focused needs with Can-Eng’s robust continuous mesh belt heat treatment system technology. The project is scheduled to be commissioned early 2018 in Mexico’s centralized automotive manufacturing corridor. Can-Eng’s mesh belt heat treatment design team continues to focus globally on the design and development of mesh belt heat treatment technology, servicing the increasingly stringent and demanding global automotive industry. Can-Eng’s systems continue to lead the industry in up-time reliability, energy efficiency and soft handling features delivering superior part cosmetics.
