Thermex Metal Treating expands plant capacity with a nitriding furnace from SecoWarwick

Thermex Metal Treating is expanding capacity at its Edmonton, Canada, facility with the purchase of a gas nitrider with vertical pit-style loading and SecoWarwick’s proprietary control technology, and ferritic nitrocarburizing capability. The furnace is being designed and manufactured in SecoWarwick’s Meadville, PA USA facility.

The purchase of this state-of-the-art equipment is in keeping with Thermex’s ongoing commitment to continuous improvement and integration of new technology. Thermex offers a wide range of ferrous metal heat treating processes and services in Western Canada, from its base in Edmonton, Alberta.

Thermex’ president, Norm Hanson, states “combined with SecoWarwick’s R&D testing capabilities and its experience in gas nitriding, we felt this was our best option to offer exacting nitriding solutions for our customers and our large load requirements.”

Jonathan Markley, SecoWarwick Corp. Managing Director commented, “We are pleased to partner with Thermex to provide this new technology alternative to traditional nitriding methods, designed specifically to reduce process costs while improving process efficiency.”
